More SAP Business ByDesign Pros →

"We have had concerns about the security and flexibility of the application. The approach with Oracle ERP Cloud should be more holistic rather than user or computer-based.""In terms of areas for improvement, there are still a lot of other features that need to be incorporated into the future releases of Oracle ERP Cloud. We're hoping those would come soon because they're available in other ERP systems. For example, we used to have a lot of AME customizations in the BPM, but now we have a very limited scope, so it would be great if we could extend our scope. Currently, we are working with product teams to get through some of those solutions, and how we could implement them, so we have some workarounds to deal with, but we still have a long road ahead.""I would like to see Oracle improve the automation of data entry.""The stability is not as good as Informatica, but this is very good.""The expenses mobile app calculates different mileages than the URL version.""The main thing Cloud ERP could improve is usability. However, it's not just an issue with Oracle. Most ERP solutions are not very user-friendly, so I think that could be the key improvement.""The solution's new analytics information, dashboard, and flexibility of reporting could be improved.""Technical support is good, however, sometimes we do need to wait for an answer."

More Oracle ERP Cloud Cons →

"The Arabic localization is neglected. It should have an Arabic interface. It lacks Arabic translation or support from right to left.""SAP Business ByDesign is a very vast product, but it has to be a bit more centralized. All the models need to be more centralized for a better experience.""ByDesign could be improved by making screen modifications easier.""SAP Business ByDesign can improve the flexibility and user-friendliness of the reporting during the implementations. Customizing the reports inside the device requires a lot of knowledge and most of the time a developer level is needed. For example, if you want to have a more specific reporting layout.""The database needs to be more customizable."
