Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"It provides our management a real-time view of operations."
"I use Oracle ERP Cloud for implementation support."
"The solution is user-friendly with a good integration layer."
"The user interface is the best feature."
"The solution is highly configurable"
"The solution is approximately 70 percent scalable. We have more than 100 people using the solution in my organization."
"What's most valuable in Oracle ERP Cloud is that it's one of the largest ERPs available in the market and it has a lot of customization features. It also has a lot of flexibility and integration options that work with other applications. Many of the customers also migrate to the cloud, so Oracle ERP Cloud is a preferred solution."
"It is easy and very convenient for clients to go to the front end and check whatever update they want to look at."
"The scalability is excellent, especially on cloud deployment models."
"It is a stable solution."
"The solution is flexible, has a lot of functionality, and has the ability to deliver more security than other comparable solutions."
"It is a very powerful, highly customizable tool."
"I can verify and provide the overall financial aid report and also the management report."
"S/4HANA falls under a single terminal. We can easily access the data, and the performance is good."
"The scalability has been good."
"The user interface of SAP S/4HANA is user-friendly."
 

Cons

"UI is not very presentable for a cloud solution."
"Oracle can make the system more stable which includes some changes as some of the use cases were not available in Oracle's systems and the element’s value needed to be defined."
"The Oracle ERP Cloud accounts payable could be improved."
"For economically weak countries, the solution's price appears expensive"
"The database is outdated and quite rigid."
"You need a lot of knowledge to set up Oracle ERP Cloud."
"There are integration issues and a lack of flexibility within OIC. When integrating systems, the process feels rigid and linear."
"It should be built with less complexity and more ability for clients to add screens."
"The migration to SAP S/4HANA is hard."
"S/4HANA could be improved with better integration. At the moment, a main issue I see is that there's so much growth in the functionality, complementary modules, and cloud solutions which were acquired by SAP and which extend the functionality of the SAP ERP suite. It looks to me that they tend to acquire more and more functionality from acquisitions, but they don't invest enough effort into making them integrated with S/4HANA or ERP. I would say that the functionality is great, but integration is something which still needs more attention. Instead of focusing on acquisitions, they should invest, integrate, and better the existing portfolio of products in SAP. It would help us, as implementors, to have a more complex or compact solution."
"The resource usage could be improved - it's memory-hungry, so mid-range servers struggle to run it."
"Maybe its user interface and reporting can be improved across the board, but it is manageable."
"An area for improvement would be integration with different kinds of legacies. In the next release, I would like the product to be prepared for blockchain technology and the best way to communicate with social networking."
"The initial setup could be better. They can make the process a little easier. The functions that we require will be available in the next release. We specifically need a new model, and I think we have some versions to implement. I already read on the SAP website that some functionalities we are waiting for are available in this new version."
"The product could be improved in several key areas, particularly in API granularity and ease of configuration."
"Their yearly licensing is expensive. Improvements are needed on the user experience level and digital work."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"In a developing country such as Bangladesh, Oracle ERP Cloud is expensive compared to on-premise solutions, so the turnover is very low. Customers become more comfortable using on-premise services because of the high subscription costs of Oracle ERP Cloud."
"The solution is moderately priced, where it is neither expensive nor cheap."
"It is too costly."
"Oracle ERP Cloud is on the expensive side."
"Oracle ERP Cloud is not a cheap solution."
"The solution's pricing is reasonable in the global market"
"The price of the solution is expensive. There are additional costs associated with this particular case that must be taken into consideration when calculating the overall expense. These costs may include but are not limited to, additional materials, labor, and other miscellaneous expenses that may arise during the course of the project. It is important to note that these additional costs may exceed the initial pricing estimate."
"We have an annual license with Oracle, however if we need additional features we do pay for them."
"The price of SAP S4HANA could be cheaper."
"I feel that the product is a bit expensive."
"The solution is expensive."
"It is an expensive solution."
"SAP is a costly product in terms of maintenance for an organization who has reached a particular level."
"The price of the solution is on the higher side compared to others."
"Though we are talking about a competitively priced model, the pricing could be more cost-effective."
"Available at a high price"
