Ready or not, Oracle cloud is firmly in place and progressing quickly with its rich business functionality and cost effectiveness. And you may be forced to make the move sooner rather than later. The biggest challenge for EBS customers is to understand what cloud readiness entails, and where their organization fits in relation.
Functionality, fit, and customizations are the three primary reasons most EBS customers are hesitant to make the move. Unless you start the process to identify your readiness you will not be able to take full advantage of the capabilities that cloud applications offer. XTGlobal can help you gauge your cloud readiness by incorporating our proprietary 4-Step Cloud Readiness Process.
Most organizations think their business processes are too complex for Oracle ERP Cloud until they evaluate the functionality. The first step is to document current business processes and create detailed process flows. These documents can be used to perform the fit gap analysis and can also be a great starting point for future-state processes.
About 25% of an company’s customizations go unused. Taking inventory of all customizations can help in evaluating the need for these in cloud. This also helps organizations fully understand their cloud needs and reduce project surprises.
Oracle is constantly releasing updates to on-premises EBS, and in most functional areas it is similar to a Cloud ERP Release. Ensuring that you are on the latest release of the on-premises EBS and leveraging the standard functionality to it’s fullest will help your cloud migration tremendously.
Don’t discount Hybrid Cloud. SaaS Cloud is a legitimate option and the functionality in Oracle ERP Cloud is superior to the on-premises EBS in areas such as Financials, Procurement, Projects, and HCM.
