ERP Vendors – oracle

Oracle

Oracle  offers its database, tools, and application products, along with related consulting, education, and support services, in more than 145 countries around the world.  Within the applications market it offers E-Business Suite, Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and PeopleSoft.

Oracle has grown primarily through acquisition of best-of-breed point solutions and has merged the JD Edwards Enterprise One functionality into Oracle EBS. Oracle EBS is comprised of over ten product lines, each of them having several modules that are licensed separately. Oracle’s best-of-breed approach, on the other hand, allows for more flexibility to accommodate changing business needs, but this strength can become a weakness when it becomes harder to enforce standardised processes across a larger organisation.

JD Edwards supports the manufacturing industry especially well. It is an integrated applications suite of comprehensive ERP software that supports a wide variety of business processes with one common database. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has an open platform which provides for a broad support for different operating systems, databases, and middleware from Oracle and other vendors. PeopleSoft targets large organizations, especially in the public sector and financial service sector.

PeopleSoft has eight different application solutions such as financials, supply chain, HR, CRM and so on, among which HR and CRM solutions are the most desirable. Before being acquired by Oracle, PeopleSoft suite was initially based on a client-server approach with a dedicated client. The current PeopleSoft version is based on a web-centric design which allows all of a company’s business functions to be accessed and run on a web browser.
