1. Leading Product Capabilities
In the 2018 Magic Quadrant, Gartner positioned Oracle ERP Cloud highest for its ability to execute. We believe this is based on the product’s leading functionality, as well as Oracle’s global capabilities, financial standing, and strong partnerships.
Furthermore, Gartner’s Critical Capabilities report rated Oracle ERP Cloud above average in all areas of functionality citing improved year-over-year scores in financial analytics and reporting, accounts receivable, and general ledger coding structures.
2. Improved Customer Experience
But it’s not just a product that provides a better customer experience. Over the past several years, as we have transitioned to a cloud company, Oracle has taken concrete steps to improve the customer experience—including accelerated buying cycles and customer success managers to help with every cloud project.
3. Part of a Complete, Connected Cloud Suite
In the Critical Capabilities report, we believe Gartner recognized the advancements we’ve made in the way of deployment and integration. This is particularly important with ERP, as it connects to nearly every other enterprise system—including human resources, supply chain management, and customer experience. Oracle offers a complete, connected suite of software-as-a-service applications across all these lines of business—something that our competitors can’t match.
4. A Global Presence
We feel that Oracle’s international presence and selling strategy are also recognized in the 2018 Magic Quadrant. This is especially important for global enterprises. The ability to do business in multiple languages, across many countries, and comply with regulations in every region, is critical for a global organization.
5. Innovation and Emerging Technology
While not discussed in detail in either Gartner report, we believe innovation is at the heart of the Oracle Cloud. Our applications are updated every quarter with the latest emerging technologies, uses cases, and best practices built into the software. Your ERP is never out of date—something that an astonishing 81 percent of Oracle survey respondents cited as a top benefit of moving to ERP in the cloud.
As new technologies emerge, they will drive enormous efficiencies and process improvements:
- The internet of things (IoT) provides the ability to sense the physical world
- Machine learning identifies patterns in large amounts of data, recommends actions, and then learns from your decisions
- Blockchain records events and actions in a secure and unalterable manner
- Human interfaces (such as chatbots and voice assistants) simplify information delivery
Oracle already has offerings around each of the above technologies. Our nearest competitors only have roadmaps—and many don’t even have those.
Start Building the Business of the Future
Each of these technologies, on its own, has the power to transform the way we work. Together, they can build a business of the future that looks nothing like it does today.
Oracle ERP Cloud helps customers innovate today, with a focus on lowered cost, reduced time, and improved quality for better overall business efficiency. We help you predict tomorrow with meaningful insights based on trending data and desired behavior. And we help you shape the future with a focus on leading best practices to drive increased growth from existing and new revenue streams.
Oracle ERP Cloud is tomorrow’s ERP, today. We invite you to take a new look.
