Oracle EBS ERP is your mission critical system which generates and/or records revenue. The last few days of the month end are crucial because
this is the period in which most of the revenue is recorded, orders are
booked etc. Hence it is essential that system is available, performs well and
scales up to the higher needs during this critical period.
What happens if the ERP system is unavailable or has a sub-par performance during period closing. The effects are manifold:
Delay in processing of financial transactions leading to interrupted
High personnel cost – Business users have to put in more time which
is totally avoidable had the ERP system scaled up to meet the increased demand.
Uncompetitive – You run the risk of falling behind in this competitive work due to inefficient operations caused by ERP bottlenecks.
Failing to meet regulatory deadlines.
Your ERP may function normally during non-perk hours, but is it geared upto meet the increased demand during the times it is most needed?
