Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It is a solution for GFMIS (Governmental Fiscal Management Information Systems).""It provides a well-centered database that is feature rich.""EBS has lots of application families and lots of features. It is modular in deployment and flexible enough to let the customer increase the built-in capabilities and enable new applications when needed. These are very important things at hand in case there will be a need to expand the product capabilities and/or implement new projects.""When correctly configured, this is a very stable solution. We have customers running their process automation manufacturing based off of this solution.""This software scales very well across various implementations.""Great finance modules and customization.""The order management is excellent.""The solution has other core processes that can be implemented with customers according to their needs."

Cons
"The user interface is not completely a web interface, it uses a lot of traffic which costs too much for a large number of users scattered throughout the country as they connect from their terminals to do their tasks.""The UI interface is not great.""Administration takes some effort. Administrating the technology stack is not so complex but application aware database administration and following the new methodologies like online patching can be a little complex and time consuming. Oracle should ease the administrators jobs and do some innovation on this administration area as well. Oracle Autonomous Database is Oracle's leading technology these days. Using a similar approach, application stack may become a little more self-managing.""One issue with the product is because it build on a lot of older technologies, there is a substantial technical debt in the system.""Not user friendly.""I would say the integration needs improvement. Oracle needs to work on the integration layer to make the solution much more robust and modern.""It's difficult for some customers to understand in the beginning. A user really has to understand the processes.""It should be made a little bit more user friendly. When I complete my implementation and hand it over to the clients or the person who will operate it on a day-to-day basis, they find it a little bit difficult because they are not from a highly qualified IT background. I want Oracle to make it a little bit more user friendly."

"The cost of this solution could be improved.""The problem is the solution has gotten so big, it's very complex now. It's a bit difficult to figure out how to do certain actions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It costs too much.""The pricing is high.""In order to minimize the implementation and consultancy costs, business lines should have proper definitions. They need to have a proper way of retrieving their data, which should be structured well.""Both the current projects and future projects should be defined well. Licensing should be done according to current and near future plans.""Licensing and costing of Oracle EBS is very complex. We recommend to use a system integrator during the negotiation process since Oracle sales representatives sometime do not know the actual minimum requirements and may oversell the necessary licenses through ignorance.""At our various customers, the software tends to pay for itself in less than two years.""USD $100,000 annually."
