Why Oracle E-Business Suite?
The Oracle E-Business Suite Architecture is a framework for multi-tiered, distributed computing that supports Oracle E-Business Suite products. In this model, various servers or services are distributed among three levels, or tiers. The Oracle E-Business Suite applications run on top of the vendor's flagship Oracle Database software. First released in 2001, E-Business Suite was Oracle's first full bundle of ERP and CRM applications; it remains the most widely used line of business applications in the company's product portfolio, despite subsequent acquisitions of various other application vendors and technologies, including JD Edwards, PeopleSoft and Siebel.
Oracle E-Business Suite has evolved over time, and Oracle’s commitment to customers, this suite of applications, and creating best-in-class products remains steadfast. The Oracle E-Business Suite product has expanded significantly in functionality, scalability, usability, and reduced cost of ownership over the past few releases, including dramatic leaps with the recent Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.
The applications found in the Oracle EBS include Oracle CRM, Oracle Financials, Oracle Human Resource Management System (HRMS), Oracle Logistics, Oracle Supply Chain Applications, Oracle Order Management, Oracle Transportation Management, and Oracle Warehouse Management System.

New Feautures in Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2.9
• Financials: Oracle Property Manager improves support for IFRS16 and ASC842
from an accounting and operational perspective. Processing of bookings,
terminations, and accrual transactions is now more flexible, with bookings and
terminations supported retrospectively. Amendments processing supports multiple
same-period amendments, categorization of amendments, and improved audit
capture. Oracle Lease and Finance Management improves end-to-end throughput
for the organization. For example, you can now streamline contract changes that
don’t involve any financial changes to a lease, such as changing lease terms and
conditions or updating address information for the lease contract counterparty.
Investor agreement improvements include contract-level accounting and investor
disbursement schedules. Additional enhancements include new web services and
• Order Management: Oracle Order Management extends its support for recurring
payment streams with a usage-based billing option to automatically generate
invoices based on customer usage. Use cases include subscriptions and rental
contracts, which often are billed based on the actual usage of underlying products or
services. Additional enhancements enable streamlined processing of orders, returns,
and price lists. For example, order management analysts can receive returns in any
unit of measure. Organizations can optimize order pricing with user-defined attributes
that trigger repricing.
• Logistics: Oracle Inventory Management adds workflow-driven cycle count
approvals with the Approvals Management Engine (AME.) It also streamlines
backorder processing with several enhancements, including the automated
cancellation of unshipped order lines for customers that do not accept backorders.
Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications (MSCA) introduces multi-field barcodes,
which simplifies data entry and provides better compliance with the new FDA (GS1)
and European (PPN) specifications. In Oracle Warehouse Management, the “verify
pick” functionality provides the opportunity for someone to verify a pick before it
progresses to the next step, reducing shipping errors and return merchandise
authorizations (RMAs) while improving inventory accuracy.
• Procurement: With Oracle Purchasing, organizations can define and capture
additional business attributes in purchase order documents to communicate unique
procurement needs to suppliers. Oracle Procurement Contracts and Oracle Sourcing
enable supplier and buyer legal teams to conduct online negotiation of contract
terms. Approvals Management Engine (AME) workflows are integrated with Oracle
Sourcing and Oracle Supplier Lifecycle Management to enable approvals by multiple
users and teams ─ for example, for approval of requirements specified in a
negotiation, or approval of questionnaire details in a supplier assessment. Oracle
iProcurement increases control and reduces errors by requiring requesters to enter
the outstanding quantity to be received.
• Projects: Oracle Project Billing provides bill groups for flexible categorization of
transactions to meet the unique billing needs of a project. New capabilities include
revenue accrual and consolidated invoicing by bill group. Additional enhancements
improve control and efficiency in project accounting and budgeting. For example,
Project Billing adds support for generating revenue in the same currency as costs to
easily match revenue to costs. Project Costing uses the same budget for project
funds check as for corporate (GL) funds check.
• Manufacturing: Oracle Process Manufacturing provides serialization support for
industries such as life sciences, chemicals, and consumer goods that require
traceability of the supply chain. In “Make to Order” scenarios, production batches can
now be configured with process instructions that are tailored to specifics of the
customer order. Support for parallel approvers greatly enhances the usability of
quality management workflows. Oracle Discrete Manufacturing provides increased
visibility and improved production controls. Operators can view on-hand quantities of
components across sub-inventories during production. Material consumption during
manufacturing can be better controlled with flexible configuration rules.
• Asset Lifecycle Management: Oracle Enterprise Asset Management enhances
work request approvals using AME. Additional enhancements further streamline
asset management and maintenance operations. For example, work request
resolution dates can be defaulted based on setup, and work order descriptions can
expand to 2000 characters. Enhanced Geographic Information System (GIS)
mapping improves visibility to asset status and work request actions.
• Service: Oracle Service supports charges integration with Oracle Advanced Pricing
to allow item charges, such as for replacement parts, to be priced using Advanced
Pricing rules. With a new prescriptive recommendation capability, Oracle Depot
Repair proposes root causes and recommends best fixes based on past service
orders. Additional enhancements increase control and flexibility of service delivery
management. For example, Advanced Scheduler can limit planned versus reactive
work performed by service technicians, and can capture a reason code for a missed
service level agreement (SLA.) Teleservice can send workflow notifications to nonemployees, including to suppliers and field service partners.
• Human Capital Management: Oracle Time and Labor offers mass upload of
employee time card entries along with an enhanced time card retrieval dashboard to
save administrator and line manager effort. Additional enhancements enable
productivity gains across the HCM product family. For example, updates to SelfService Human Resources (SSHR) information now trigger email confirmations. In
Canada, employees can view and update their tax information via SSHR. In the US,
ex-employees can view and download SSHR payslips and W-2 forms.
• Applications Technology: Enhancements to the Oracle Application Framework
(OAF) improve the user experience of HTML UIs. New “list search” functionality
simplifies table searches in many high-use HTML pages. With list search, users can
view saved table searches as infotiles. Users also can select filter values displayed
next to a table, including values derived from descriptive flexfields. Additional HTML
enhancements include a simplified table toolbar, and popups for lists of values, date
picker, key flexfields, and descriptive flexfields, Oracle Workflow provides enhanced
options for configuring email notification attachments, and supports date and time
display in the user’s preferred time zone.
