What are the main differences between SAP HANA and Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS)?



I'm working at a consulting company and I need to select an ERP product for a client. 

I want to go with SAP HANA but the client is interested to get a comparison between SAP HANA and Oracle EBS before making any decision. Can anyone share the differences between them?

Thank you!

Please answer the questions below. Then I can have a better look at your question.

What are your

- Organization size (eg. 10,000 employees and users, or 10M$ USD Revenue Per Year)?

- Organization process that the client needs(eg. full purchasing process without HR Process)?

- Organization industry (eg. project-oriented (E, EPC, ...), Manufacturer, Sales)?

- Organization needs and priorities (eg. good UI/UX over best functionality)?

- Organization maturity level(eg. best practice process over "as-is" process)?

In general, both systems are ERP Tier1 and Best Practice and have advantages and disadvantages, but commonly

-SAP is used in very large industries, almost manufacturing industries and mature industries (customized level in SAP is low).

-Oracle EBS can be used in large and medium industries, organizations with a financial-based process (I mean the financial process is important over other processes), and organizations with non-standard needs (a customized level in EBS is High).

You must write an RFP for this comparision, e.g. you must check:

-The Enterprise budget for ERP

-The Enterprise license needs

-The Enterprise infrastructure and roadmap (I4.0, Cloud, Private Datacenter, ...),

-The Enterprise IT and supporting Team

and so on.

So, please do not select any system without checking these in detail. If you like, I can help you.
