Manage Performance with a Best Practice Metrics Library

NOTE: This capability is planned for a new product to be introduced in the future.
Why Are We Building This?

For global organizations, standardizing metrics across many different business units and applications can be challenging. Downloading data to desktop visualization tools aren’t much help because standards can’t be enforced, so governance quickly becomes unwieldly. In the end, this expensive, handcrafted process leaves managers drowning in data with no actionable insights.

What is a metrics library?

This comprehensive library of best practice metrics incorporates Oracle’s extensive knowledge and experience in building business applications. Spanning all business functions and roles, the best practice metrics library will include strategic, operational, and process metrics that can be benchmarked internally or against a peer group. The library connects and combines data across multiple, logical SaaS applications for an integrated view on performance. Leveraging built-in visualization and dashboard tools, users can easily drill down to get details for additional insights and change perspectives along many dimensions. The best practice metrics will cover Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle HCM Cloud, Oracle Customer Experience Cloud, and Oracle Supply Chain Management Cloud.

A sampling of the best practice metrics library for ERP includes:

  • AP Turnover Ratio
  • Cash Conversion Cycle
  • Current Ratio
  • Debt-to-Equity Ratio
  • Fixed Assets Turnover Ratio
  • Inventory
  • Net Income
  • Return on Assets
  • Total Assets
  • Total Working Capital
  • AR Turnover rate
  • COGS-to-Revenue Percentage
  • Days Inventory Outstanding
  • EBITDA Margin Percentage
  • Gross Margin Percentage
  • Inventory Turnover Ratio
  • Quick Ratio
  • Return on Equity
  • Total Liabilities

How does this benefit you, the customer?

The best practice metrics in Oracle Analytics will provide customers with consistent metric definitions across business units, product areas, operating companies, and geographies. By leveraging this broad library, you have a comprehensive source of business metrics that can be tailored to your environment. Instead of wasting time developing custom metrics, managers can focus on discovering the answers to important business questions.
