Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) is a fantastic suite of applications to enable management of enterprise level operations. This comprehensive application suite does just that, providing clients with an end-to-end solution to accounting, HR, inventory and process management, and much more. With such a robust suite of tools, concerns about navigation and data visibility are always at the forefront. That is not an issue for Oracle EBS. With the addition of the Enterprise Command Center, this suite is more accessible than ever.
Introduction of the Enterprise Command Center – In October last year, Oracle announced the release of the Enterprise Command Center (ECC) to improve reporting and navigation for their E-Business Suite. The ECC improves visibility and data navigation through tools and drill down dashboards that go to the transactional level. This represents the most comprehensive reporting tool to date, and significantly improves utilization of the application suite. Some of the best news about this release is that it comes without additional licensing fees. Anyone with an EBS license can begin using ECC free of charge. It is compatible with versions 12.2.4 and above.
Additional Enhancements to ECC – As part of the ECC rollout plan, Oracle announced several enhancements due to be released throughout 2019. The recent release of 19 command centers and 62 dashboards significantly increases the scope of the service. These tools are fully compatible with Oracle E-Business Suite ERP and SCM applications. Let’s take a look at some of the features found in this newest release.
