We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"ERP is a valuable feature of this product."
"The solution has other core processes that can be implemented with customers according to their needs."
"Everyone in the company is quite used to the Oracle functionality."
"It's highly customizable."
"I like that one system covers everything."
"The most valuable feature is the integration between accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, and budgeting."
"It makes financial operations easier to perform."
"I have found the solution to have a good interface, security, and is user-friendly."
"It simplifies everything for human capital management, and all users can do self-enrollment for leaves and those kinds of things. The employee self-service feature is quite a powerful feature for me. You can install it on your mobile phone or iPad and do your employee service activity there."
"I like the talent, recruitment, and learning features the most."
"The most valuable feature is Organizational Management (OM)."
"The most valuable feature is the Personnel Administration."
"SAP HCM can handle a large number of employees. We can easily process payrolls and check the arrangements, and the client can also check the performance of the employees. Additionally, it has some advanced features."
"They have some interesting features in the learning space."
"The user interface is the solution's most valuable feature. It makes it easy for us to use."
"HCM is a very important module that each organization should want to use. It will help any organization to calculate and control the cost of their human resources."
"One issue with the product is because it build on a lot of older technologies, there is a substantial technical debt in the system."
"The user interface could be better. It's not good because they made their interface all in one, and my customers don't want to use it. I have to customize the interface and personalize it to hide some fields on the screen. It has lots of information on the screen, and the user can't easily navigate it. It's very difficult to use. I think that Oracle should have something like best practices. They need to provide some patches to simplify the interface based on the industry niche. Because now we see everything on the same screen, but the users don't need all that information. It's complicated to use for end-users, and we have to spend more time training them. In the next release, I think they should implement most of the features in the mobile app. It should be better. Oracle didn't update their mobile application for a very long time. Connecting the mobile application is complicated."
"User interface is outdated and not user friendly."
"They don't have built-in bank integrations, which would be very helpful."
"There are some cycles in HR that are not straightforward."
"It would be nice to have more web services."
"There are some business-specific processes still not implemented."
"Earlier when our organization was small they chose Oracle because in the telecommunication industry everybody was using Oracle. Our company has grown to a size where our particularly billing phase has created some challenges and now we are looking at alternate solutions. There is not a billing engine or module that you can buy from Oracle that can be added to this EBS solution to fix our problem. They should add a billing module or engine to the solution."
"This solution needs to be more configurable and user-friendly."
"It would be nice if the solution migrated to S/4HANA."
"The extensibility of the integration could be improved."
"SAP now does the most innovation for the cloud solution and less innovation for the on-premises client."
"I would like it to move more towards a single data space, a single data source. SAP as a platform relies on multiple data sources because traditionally, it's been bolted together by the acquisition of other products rather than a single database. That's why there are lots of points of failure and lots of required points of integration. They need a single integration point."
"The speed of technical support can be improved."
"The solution is rather expensive."
"SAP is not ready to sell the license on time and delays the progress of projects. It's better to work with a competitor like Oracle. Those that are selling the product just go through powerpoints and don't have the knowledge necessary to sell. They can't answer any questions."
"Both the current projects and future projects should be defined well. Licensing should be done according to current and near future plans."
"The license is very expensive and I think that it needs to be cheaper to get a wider range of users or customers."
"The price would be better if it were lower."
"This product is more expensive if you compare it to SAP."
"Licensing is on a yearly basis. There is an initial cost, and the standard fee is 22% per year."
"Considering the market at the moment, Oracle needs to adjust the pricing of this solution."
"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."
"USD $100,000 annually."
"SAP is extremely expensive. The integration costs and customization costs are also a lot."
"Licensing fees are paid yearly."
"The solution is a little expensive and we are charged per user for the license. The solution can be paid monthly or annually."
"SAP is expensive, but if you're using the product, then the expensive product becomes inexpensive. Considering its performance and features, I find it quite reasonable."
"You pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
