"The build-in dashboard and reporting customization should be improved."

More 3i Infotech ORION Cons →

"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.""One issue with the product is because it build on a lot of older technologies, there is a substantial technical debt in the system.""I would rate the support for Oracle E-Business Suite a four out of five.""It requires training before you can easily use this product, so it should be easier to use.""Areas for improvement would be that sometimes it's a bit rigid with customization and doesn't always facilitate region-specific requirements.""They should include database functionality.""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.""Oracle is not keeping up on development of the on-premises version of this product as they are concentrating on cloud solutions."

  • "Licensing is on a yearly basis. There is an initial cost, and the standard fee is 22% per year."

    Reviews from Real Users:

    Kopano R., Freelancer at a tech services company, says, “What I found most valuable in Oracle E-Business Suite is the patching because it is straightforward. As long as you follow Oracle's best practices, you are able to finish the task of patching without a problem. I like that it's also easy to add products, e.g. if you want to add on financials, you can, or if you don't have financials, you can expand on that. I like that Oracle E-Business Suite is really scalable.”

    Mohammed G., Senior Oracle Application Consultant at a comms service provider, writes, “Oracle E-Business Suite consists of a lot of streams, such as financial and HR processes of the enterprise companies. We are using most of the Oracle financial modules, and we have an Oracle stream, FI procurement stream, and HR streams, which have a lot of applications. Oracle E-Business Suite has over 20 different modules to choose from, it is comprehensive. Additionally, the integration is very good. “
