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.""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.""Their great technical support is one of the most valuable features.""The most valuable feature is its flexibility."

"The integration between the different models like personnel administration, work management, payroll, and time management are the most valuable and key features.""The most valuable feature, in my view, is the level of exceptions or error messages that come back when something goes wrong.""The master data where most of the reports were run from was the most valuable. We were quite satisfied with this module.""All of the core processes are very valuable aspects of the solution. These include personnel, administration, organizational structure, and payroll.""The stability of the solution is good.""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.""The most valuable feature is Organizational Management (OM)."

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.""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 reporting needs to be improved."

"On the personnel administration side, it's very difficult to do custom development.""It takes a long time to apply an update patch to the system.""It is a bit tedious and manual to work with.""The organizational structure visualization could be improved in future releases. The solution has a very poor interface.""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.""The implementation of the solution can be a bit difficult. They should make it easier. If it could be as simple as the SuccessFactors implementation that would be ideal.""SAP now does the most innovation for the cloud solution and less innovation for the on-premises client.""This solution needs to be more configurable and user-friendly."

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.""USD $100,000 annually.""Considering the market at the moment, Oracle needs to adjust the pricing of this solution.""This product is more expensive if you compare it to SAP.""The pricing of the solution is at about $700-$750 per year."

"In my view, this product is a waste of money for SMB because there are much better products available and licensing is an issue.""You pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""SAP is extremely expensive. The integration costs and customization costs are also a lot.""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."
