Key Advantages of Oracle ERP Cloud Vs. Oracle EBS
Upgrades and new releases are more expensive and time-consuming in on-premises ERP solutions because the user must purchase and install an upgrade package or pay for specialized services to perform the software upgrade.
Fremont, CA: For many IT departments, ERP systems have often meant large, costly, and time-consuming deployments that necessitate significant hardware or infrastructure investments. Moving ERP to the cloud enables businesses to reduce support costs while quickly seeing a return on investment.
In addition to cost savings, cloud-based ERP applications provide faster time to value, greater innovation, and greater scalability. Cloud-based ERP applications are now complete solutions with many of the same features and functionality as their on-premises counterparts. Furthermore, cloud systems facilitate the easy integration of other critical technologies such as mobility, analytics, collaboration, and social tools.
Key Advantages of Oracle ERP Cloud vs. Oracle EBS
Significantly lower TCO
When compared to Oracle EBS, Oracle ERP Cloud has no upfront license costs and lower maintenance costs. When Nucleus Research examined total business costs (software, personnel, hardware, and training) over a three-year period, it discovered that initial costs for on-premises ERP were 2.4 times higher than Oracle ERP Cloud.
Upgrades and new releases are more expensive and time-consuming in on-premises ERP solutions because the user must purchase and install an upgrade package or pay for specialized services to perform the software upgrade. Oracle ERP Cloud receives automatic software updates, whereas upgrading Oracle EBS necessitates significant time and effort on the part of the IT team.
Scalability and Integration
SaaS solutions are available in cloud environments that are easily scalable and integrate with other SaaS offerings. Oracle ERP Cloud is designed to support a wide range of application integrations and does so in a dependable architecture. Oracle ERP Cloud can handle complex integrations as well as large amounts of data. In Oracle EBS, this process is more complicated and requires extensive support from the IT team to design and build the integrations.
Better User Interface
Oracle ERP Cloud has undergone a total redesign, making the applications more streamlined and user-friendly. Cutting-edge web technologies result in a simple, intuitive experience that makes most back-office functions faster and easier to perform. On-premises Oracle EBS lacks the redesigned user interface and appears outdated in comparison.
Oracle Cloud Marketplace
Oracle Cloud Marketplace is an online store where Oracle Cloud partners can sell cloud business applications and professional services. It is intended to assist customers in gaining access to Oracle's expanding ecosystem of partner applications and solutions. The integration of Oracle Cloud Marketplace and Oracle Cloud infrastructure, as well as the use of partner capabilities, can assist you in deploying the best solutions for your business needs.
