Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) is a fantastic compilation of tools for consolidating your enterprise functionality, management, and analytics. But what platform should you use to make the most out of your Oracle EBS? On-prem or third-party cloud infrastructure may not be making the most out of your Oracle applications. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) you will enjoy the fastest, most efficient, most optimized platform to get the maximum benefit from Oracle EBS.
What is Oracle EBS?
This suite of applications handles everything you need to run your enterprise level business functionality, including customer relationship management (CRM), human resources management (HRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and supply-chain management (SCM). The EBS collection is one of Oracle’s major product offerings with robust capabilities to consolidate your business management under one roof. With tools covering logistics, financials, order management, marketing, HR, and many more, Oracle EBS is an industry leading, comprehensive solution.
Is On-Prem a Problem?
If you are a current or future owner of Oracle EBS you may be wondering what infrastructure will best compliment this powerhouse of tools. More and more companies are moving away from in-house data centers because of the high cost of implementation and maintenance. These data centers require creating and maintaining multiple environments, from primary production to development and backup environments. It just isn’t as beneficial anymore to keep up the with in-house hardware when there is another option. Cloud solutions offer more flexibility and scalability, and are competitively priced to offer better ROI for many companies.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service (SaaS) offers the most flexible and scalable cloud-based option for application and data management. Unlike SaaS (software as a service), IaaS products give you complete control over your infrastructure and let you manage your applications just as you would with an on-prem data center, except in this case you are using “virtualized servers.” This means that you have the flexibility to scale up or down as needed and will only pay for the resources you actually use. It also means that your servers are maintained by the provider and you won’t have to worry about dealing with aging hardware causing performance or security issues.
