Oracle E-Business Suite Valuable Features

ErmanArslan, Oracle ACE
Sr. Director, Systems & Databases at GTech
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. EBS has a certain history. There is a certain know-how with documentation for almost all its use cases. The product relies on Oracle technologies, the world's leading Oracle Database and Oracle application tier. This is valuable because, while it satisfies lots of customer requirements and standards, it also means that the technology layer gets continuous improvements and updates, as Oracle keeps the components on this layer always up-to-date. EBS 12.2, the newest release also provides an Online Patching option for supplying near zero downtime both for applications (functional side) and the technology stack. This is valuable in mission-critical environments. Online patching removes the barriers for an upgrade because it is online. It gives the customers the ability to make downtime negotiations easier. Using online patching, they have planned downtime and it is measured in minutes. For customers who are using a virutalized environment, Oracle delivers VM templates (for Oracle VM Server). This feature also provides easy enablement for applications. High availability and disaster recovery architectures make the product continuously operate by any means. Continuity can be guaranteed with these architectures. Oracle gives high importance to this product and following a "Continuous Innovation" release model for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2. EBS 12.2 will be supported at least until 2030. View full review »

It is easy to use and has many functions for facilitating day-to-day work (transactionally speaking). There are a lot of reports and queries available. The GL and FAH modules have become real-deal players for an organization with many legacy systems that handle transactions and where there is a need to create accounting from these transactions. The supplier invoice payment process is very easy and is integrated from the requisition to the payment (and to creating the asset). I like very much the way we can control inventories.
