Top 3 reasons to choose Oracle Cloud ERP

An end-to-end ERP solution that grows with you

Customers with complex requirements often discover Microsoft needs partners and third-party products for areas like Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), Human Capital Management (HCM), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), risk management, sourcing, contracts, transportation and more.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) vs. customization

What starts as an attractive proposal can be less compelling after considering the cost of customization, change orders and partner support fees. Customers should consider the costs of switching Microsoft partners and the entire system when it can’t scale to meet your requirements.

The benefits of a direct relationship with Oracle

Unlike Microsoft—which often relies on partners to contribute industry expertise and intellectual property—Oracle maintains a direct relationship with customers to improve our solution and facilitate peer exchange across the entire Oracle customer community.
