Oracle Strengths and Weaknesses

Competitive positioning in the Supply Chain software market is highlighted with the following strengths and weaknesses.

Oracle Strengths
 

  • Through acquisition and in-house development, Oracle has viable solutions for all the key supply chain management automation requirements, providing a SCM path without a need for third party solutions to plug requirement gaps.
  • A number of Supply Chain Planning and Supply Chain Execution areas are on the frontier of innovative supply chain planning best practices; such as S&OP, inventory optimization, WMS and TMS.
  • Oracle’s EBS Supply Chain Planning software and Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) are the top tier SCM market solutions.
  • Oracle has robust global coverage, along with a large network of business partners to implement and support their supply chain management software offerings.
  • Oracle Fusion Middleware is a leading application integration solution and is supported by a large number of global business partners.
  • Oracle customers across a wide range of criteria are generally satisfied with the Supply Chain Management software solutions.
  • Oracle has an innovative supply chain software roadmap to integrate planning, performance, business intelligence, WMS, TMS and SCE convergence.
  • The company's flagship product, Oracle Fusion, is offering new choice in customer delivery, be it in a public cloud, Oracle cloud, private cloud (on-premise) or a hybrid combination of any of the preceding. Over time, Fusion will eventually replace EBS.
  • The Oracle strategy which compliments nearly all of its business applications is much more deliberate in supporting disruptive technologies such as cloud, mobile, social, Customer Experience (CX) and Big Data.

Oracle Weaknesses
 

  • The size of the Oracle applications portfolio is extremely large and even fluid as new products get acquired and old products get retired. Navigating the many Oracle applications and understanding which ERP or supply chain software products — whether Fusion, EBS, PeopleSoft or JD Edwards — deliver the optimal enterprise software for particular business requirements can be confusing.
  • Oracle Fusion Application’s future direction for Supply Chain Management is still less than clear; however, any impact is a few years in the future.
  • OTM requires third party solutions for parcel manifesting, carrier community management and LTL rates.
  • Because of acquisitions of BEA Systems, Sun Microsystems and AmberPoint, Oracle Fusion Middleware requires additional integration work and may present upgrade challenges.
  • Because of acquisition and older offerings, the user interfaces and user experience are not always consistent among the applications.
  • Some users complain about the lack of speed at which Oracle fixes software bugs.
  • Oracle does not offer a SaaS version of their Supply Chain Management software offerings, however, this will ultimately change as Oracle Fusion eventually delivers deeper supply chain software feature sets.
