Compare Oracle Cloud ERP for banking to SAP banking

The banking industry is going through unprecedented changes. In this shifting environment, a broad range of banks trust Oracle banking solutions to help them stay competitive. Oracle has proven to be the most complete and integrated provider of SaaS, ERP, EPM, HR, and SCM solutions. On the other hand, SAP has not built any comprehensive service offering across all segments of banking. When compared with Oracle, SAP's position in banking suffers from its lack of a banking solution that is integrated with ERP and other applications. SAP remains largely centered on the ERP market, rather than banking systems. In fact, SAP itself doesn’t claim any leadership position in the banking sector.

Analysts consistently rate Oracle a leader

In the latest IDC MarketScape, “Worldwide End-to-End Corporate Banking Solution Providers Vendor Assessment,” IDC highlighted how Oracle stood out in end-to-end finance and data analytics. According to IDC, “Its history of relational database expertise and ability to integrate past acquisitions mean that it can provide the comprehensive solution and data capabilities sought by end users.”

IDC also pointed to SAP’s incomplete service offering and lack of presence in some regions, “SAP must still build its comprehensive service offering across all segments—it is particularly lacking in trade finance.”

According to Markets Insider, "Oracle has been at the forefront of the digital transformations that took place during the pandemic. The primary reason for that is its superior cloud-based ERP solution, which offers a whole host of features at cost-effective prices for its clients. These tools enable customers to save real money on reporting, data entry, back-end work, validation, and other aspects."
