The Strengths and Pain Points of Oracle Cloud ERP
Within the hectic world of enterprise resource planning, one of the best performing solutions is Oracle Cloud ERP.
Of course, as an ERP leader, it has plenty of strong points – it performs very well for sales and inventory reconciliation for enterprises. It has strong project management modules. And the same goes for its data extraction capabilities.
But there is nothing in the physical world that can reach the point of perfection – that stuff can be left to the spiritual realm, if you wish. Everything comes with weakness. And yes, that even applies to Oracle’s Cloud ERP.
So, to bring an air of clarity to the minds of those whose job touches upon or fully involves enterprise resource planning (or just for the curious of mind) we’ve collected and weighed the pros and cons of Oracle Cloud ERP from across those that use it – whether they’ve been using it for years or are new to the system – and will pass on in their own words what they think. To respect their identities, we’ve decided not to provide their names.
So here goes. Let’s begin with the system’s strengths.
“When you have everything centralized on a single platform it just gets so much easier to stay updated and do well in business from so many angles.”
“Oracle ERP Cloud is currently leading in the marketplace for providing cloud flare management solutions for mid-size to large global businesses.”
“Its reporting capabilities are now enhanced and need very less efforts and skills to develop which empowers the user with analytics they want.”
“As it easily gets along with all the software that we are already using for handling business operations, it easily gets along with them and provides me with the complete platform package to handle all the business processes on the go on this platform.”
“Moreover, as Oracle Cloud ERP is a cloud-based company, it is easy to use and also works because it just automates the entire business process.”
“Oracle Cloud ERP has the most comprehensive accounting engine to cater to various financial reporting needs.”
“Oracle Cloud ERP has real strength in balancing control and flexibility through its modular yet integrated business functions approach.”
“It gives resilience and agility to do business processes to position ourselves for growth.”
Crystalizing these sentiments and opinions, we can see that the core strengths of Oracle Cloud ERP are its automation capabilities, its easy integration, its cloud-based nature, and its flexibility.
Now onto its weaknesses.
“Oracle Cloud ERP has some minor disadvantages that if improved can enhance the overall user experience to a great extent. Firstly, Oracle Cloud ERP does not have many native connectors to other systems so that is a con that I have faced.”
“Documentation: They must improve their documentation. There are a lot of features which aren’t mentioned in Oracle’s online available guides. Users only come to know after using or exploring it.”
“Support: This point actually ties back to documentation. But support teams should be equipped with the latest tools. And considering cloud structure, they should be having more access to problem identification. So, the support level should also enhance with new product capabilities.”
“I have to go through different guides and click different tabs to actually be on the tool, which I need to manage specific tasks, which takes time and makes me less productive.”
“Production processes: Oracle Cloud ERP has a long way to go to address core production processes. They have made progress through Primavera, but this only addresses the planning bit and not the core design driven execution.”
“Navigation is the big task while using Oracle ERP Cloud, as it is very hard to navigate things on such a clunky dashboard.”
Crystalizing the cons, we can see that users are having issues with the user-interface experience, the lack of native connectors, and production processes.
