Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This solution offers customization. You'll have the ability to change and add your custom solutions and integrate them with the standard ones.""Oracle E-Business Suite improves forecast accuracy, reduces costs, and increases manufacturing capacity.""I think one of the best use cases is centralizing supplier and customer data into our finance system. We identified there were so many duplicate suppliers and customers and so a lot of time was spent reporting.""This software scales very well across various implementations.""It is a very consistent product on IBM. There is also a lot of knowledge data.""The most valuable feature is its flexibility.""It makes financial operations easier to perform.""The complete product suite is good. The financials are good, it is the best product I've been working with is Oracle Financial. Supply chain manufacturing is very comprehensive and the connectivity, between all the modules, is seamless. They are all communicated well with one another."

"The solution offers good benefits for administrators.""Good integration capabilities and extensibility.""The solution is stable and reliable.""Performance and goal management are good to have, based on certain client requirements where the user base isn't too large, but the most workable domain of Taleo is the recruiting module."

Cons
"They should include database functionality.""There are some business-specific processes still not implemented.""In the future, Oracle E-Business Suite could improve by having a better UI. Competitors are providing much better interfaces.""The reporting needs to be improved.""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 interface is pretty old.""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.""The solution needs to be updated with modern technology as it currently runs on the Java platform, JWE, which is obsolete and requires you to need an API supported browser."

More Oracle E-Business Suite Cons →

"Lacks some systems that we need.""In terms of Oracle Taleo as a product, there are a lot of things which can be developed; most feedback which I have heard from customers is about the dashboard and the home page, both of which are quite basic.""There are always going to be little caveats here and there that you might not have known about as far as changes are concerned, however, it's not business-oriented to the point where the business shuts down.""It's hard to share access with other people right now. If you try it will not work. They should do something that improves the ability to share everything."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "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."
  • "At our various customers, the software tends to pay for itself in less than two years."
  • "Licensing is on a yearly basis. There is an initial cost, and the standard fee is 22% per year."
  • "Oracle's licenses are not straightforward."
  • "The license is very expensive and I think that it needs to be cheaper to get a wider range of users or customers."

  • "Whether you pay annually or on some other payment schedule depends on the license model you choose. Typically, clients pay a yearly subscription."

    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.”

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. “
