It provides one overview of the capacity planning.It integrates everything into one process.Finance view across functions is valuable.It automates transactional processes.The power of ABAP Development Tools is the main valuable feature in the SAP ECC system. Every couple of years SAP upgrades ABAP technology significantly, which facilitates developers' work.It gives us full control over each change, to the level of the individual field in a master record, including certificates.MDG provides a central location for governance of the creation/updating processes of master data. It allows you to change several fields in the same object. For example, we can change a field on the purchasing view and change another field on an accounting view to the same material at the same time.The new Visual Enterprise functionalities give an intuitive approach to data and make communication between engineering and production easy.

Cons
The UI interface is not great.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.Reporting is a big area for improvement. It needs to provide the ability to extract data from the suite. Oracle has also been making a great effort to make E-Business Suite more user-friendly but there are still areas where a focus on User Experience would help.Standard reporting needs to be changed. Many of the standard reports look the same as they did in version 10.7, 20 years ago.On-site cloud support is slow and unresponsive.HRMS analyzers should be automatically updated to be the most recent because Oracle support always asks for the latest version of the analyzer output.We need more user-friendly fast formulas for all HRMS modules.One issue with the product is because it build on a lot of older technologies, there is a substantial technical debt in the system.

It needs to incorporate the new features from the SAP S/4HANA release, such as, utilizing data processes, which is quite nice.SAP is not making a big effort to make it easy to integrate solutions from other vendors. It's not easy at all... Integration is what they can do better.There will always be something within our business that it won't fit.Poor ergonomics.Although you can use SAP as a Warehouse Management System, and you don’t need any other program for that purpose, it is not enough as a Transportation Management System. You need another program which is integrated with SAP.The power of ABAP Development Tools is the main valuable feature in the SAP ECC system. Every couple of years SAP upgrades ABAP technology significantly, which facilitates developers' work.The UI could use improvement.Improvements to the UI. The UI is pretty old, but this will change with the upcoming release of S.4.​

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is high.It costs too much.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.Oracle scales the pricing, but E-Business Suite is still very expensive for small to mid-sized businesses.Find a best Oracle partner and get a better discount.

SAP ECC is not cheap but I consider it the best system for managing an organization's data and processes.
