ERP Customizations...Are your CEMLI’s Holding You Back?

Upgrading your Oracle applications can be an intimidating and nerve-racking experience depending on your organization’s level of customizations. Often times they have an on-going effect on your organization causing increased complexity, less flexibility, and additional maintenance cost. Organizations that reduce their dependency on customizations:

  • Reduce complexity by up to 50%
  • Reduce the cost of future maintenance and upgrades
  •  Create a foundation for easier enablement of new product functionality and business value

Oracle Consulting offers a complimentary service called Oracle CEMLI Benchmark and Analysis, which is an effective first step used to evaluate your E-Business Suite application CEMLI complexity.  The service will help your organization understand the number of customizations you have, how you rank against your peer groups and identifies target areas for customization reduction by providing a catalogue of customizations by object type, CEMLI ID or Project ID and Business Process.

Whether you’re currently deployed on-premise, managed private cloud or considering a move to the cloud, understanding your customizations is critical as you begin an upgrade.  Learn how you can reduce complexity and overall TCO with this informative screencast.  For more information or to take advantage of this complimentary service today, contact Oracle Consulting directly at ask-oracleconsulting.com_us@oracle.com

The Challenges of Corporate Financial Reporting

Many finance professionals face serious challenges in managing and reporting their company’s financial data, despite recent investments in financial reporting systems. Oracle and Accenture launched this research report to help finance professionals better understand the state of corporate financial reporting today, and why recent investments may have fallen short.

The study reveals a key central issue: Organizations have been taking a piecemeal—rather than holistic—approach to investing. Without a vision and strategy that addresses process improvement, data integrity, and user adoption software, investments alone will not meet the needs or expectations of most organizations.

The research found that the majority of finance teams in 12 countries—including the U.K., USA, France, Germany, Russia, and Spain—have made substantial investments in corporate financial management processes and systems over the last three years. However, many of these solutions, which were expected to improve close, reporting, and filing processes, are ineffective, resulting in a lack of visibility, quality, and confidence in financial data.
