Time is money, and lost productivity means lost revenue. When enterprise users waste time figuring out their next steps in the operational process, valuable resources can be lost. Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) and its Enterprise Command Centers are combatting this with integrated dashboards and “information-driven navigation[i]”. Together, they take the guesswork out of next steps and improve efficiency for better decision making.
The Enterprise Command Centers are a group of interactive dashboards available at no additional cost to clients utilizing the associated Oracle EBS application. These dashboards provide specific homepages that allow EBS application users more streamlined access to the challenges most important to their role. They are also granted access to the transactional pages needed to address those challenges. As of the newest release in March 2021, there are 31 command centers and 110 dashboards available across the applications. These dashboards target specific needs according to a wide array of industries and business processes, and each release aims to broaden the scope of the use cases. This newest release increased the Manufacturing capabilities as well as the Inventory and Asset Management and Financial Operations products.
The dashboards of Oracle’s Enterprise Command Centers do away with static navigation. This is done in order to create a user experience unique to each user on a given business day and their particular needs. Users are presented with drill-down dashboards that recompute upon each selection. Every tier of discovery is driven by the user following the clues of the day to target the most important business concerns. Once the data has been followed to a necessary action point, command centers automatically populate associated transactional forms to save time and compute power associated with requerying the data. Data can also be accessed through “consumer-like” search and filters.
The Enterprise Command Centers integrate seamlessly with Oracle EBS to provide a functional platform that interprets your data from across your Oracle applications. This provides a consolidated view of your business operations. Cost savings are another benefit that come with more accurate data and more efficient processes. The security and UI is integrated with EBS to allow for seamless user adoption and data protection and fidelity. Installation is quick and simple with an easy-to-use installer tool and fast deployment. This means little disruption to your daily operations.
Oracle EBS is a cloud-focused, integrated application suite that can significantly improve business processes and lower costs. With Enterprise Command Centers, Oracle EBS becomes even more efficient and accessible, optimizing operational processes and affecting cost-saving change. If you are a current or potential Oracle client, consider the benefits of EBS with Enterprise Command Centers for an integrated management system.
