E-Business Suite Compliance

Oracle E-Business Suite Review

The Risk and Cost of Non-Compliance

For many Oracle customers under the scanner, Oracle E-Business Suite is observed to be the most widely used and abused (read “non-compliant”) product. A typical Oracle EBS customer can easily be non-compliant to the tune of $$ Millions from one or more of the following reasons:

  • Non-standard customizations over prolonged un-monitored usage.
  • Over-usage of specific licensed modules – not detected because complex responsibilities allocation.
  • Over-deployment of specific licenses, users have unintended access to extra licenses.
  • Wrong expectations over usage calculation – due to license metrics complexity.
  • Active usage of unlicensed installations.

How We Can Help

As part of an Oracle E-Business Suite Review service, here are the steps that we undertake to help you fully assess the level of risk and cost of potential non-compliance:

COLLECTION :

  • Oracle EBS standard data collection, including users, modules, responsibilities, login data over a specific period of time.
  • Besides user data that is collected from specific FND tables, specialist SQL scripts are run to measure usage-based metrics (e.g. order lines).
  • The usage data is collected from all relevant Oracle EBS environments, checked for accuracy, analysed across multiple instances and consolidated to ensure that users are counted once per each license.
  • Our EBS analysis tool will pull local data directly (JDBC access), data is retained and handled in-memory and not distributed over the network or using interactive access to other systems/databases.
  • The processed data is loaded on a secured local machine and report is produced in-house.

ANALYSIS :

  • The Oracle EBS licenses are added into the program and the corresponding modules/responsibilities/users.
  • Dependencies are considered and added between EBS licenses (especially in a restricted-use scenario).
  • The counting of the Oracle EBS licenses is done per each license dynamically, during the allocation and mapping process, for distinct users.
  • The allocation of modules and responsibilities to Oracle EBS licenses is accomplished per knowledge base of the user with contractual and support agreements, and in accordance with Oracle licensing best practices.

RESULT :

  • Counting process will be repeated after data clean-up, to match management expectations.
