Business Consulting Thru Oracle Applications Suites .. Not Just Oracle Implementation

 

Background

Cold War is has given way to Globalization.. business is done in a collaboration with customers, vendors, consultants, employees spread all around the globe. Business has spread its wings cutting across all geographical and political boundaries. Sourcing is done from multiple points across the globe, materials being staged in multiple warehouse points, manufacturing and assembling done in another point, finished goods distributed to many points triggering shipments to end users..

This is the top view of a business to-day, interesting but challenging, complex but rewarding.  'Grow' and 'Spread' is the call of the day, You have to grow and cannot afford to confine yourself in a small arena .. just spread your wings .. do business anywhere and everywhere .. we will support you now on. That's a promise

 How we are different – rather totally different - we rolled Oracle Apps for more than 90 legal entities in 11 countries within a short span of 10 years   

 In the Robbins-Gioia Survey on ERP success, out of 232 respondents, 51% viewed their ERP implementation as unsuccessful

 Unfortunately this failure applies to Oracle too. What is the core reason of ERP failure? So much manuals and support docs floating around in web and cloud, Oracle metalink on your side 24x7, Oracle consultants deployed have 5-10 years of ‘full cycle’ implementation experience, so why? What is the secret of such proven ‘failure’

 The real reason..lot of players including big players are in Oracle consulting business without knowing ‘client’ business. Its all about the people and the core people how do they carry on process study, discuss with business users and churn out the solution around the Oracle EBS tool.

 Oracle EBS is just a tool, just like a pencil, and if you don’t know how to write a story or draw a picture, pencil won’t help much, this is the reality, off late many organizations are realizing after wasting valuable time, resources and money

 Of course there are additional failure factors ..just start playing with client without testing the turf, in the rush ‘closing’ a deal, deploying fresher right from ‘campus interview’ from any and every ‘private’  colleges, after offering  just a ‘brief’ training if basics, to build the number for billing man days

 It’s a fact, many Oracle consultants had never got the opportunity of entering into a manufacturing plant, or never aware of a global supply chain practice, they may not know what is ‘GAAP’ and how it differs from ‘IFRS’, how exchange rate variance is taken care, what is the difference between ‘standard costing’ and ‘average costing’ and how it hits the financial statements of the client

 These are  ‘domain’ knowledge, the prowess not developed in ERP classes or found in User manuals. It comes out of experience while one works in a domain related industry or an audit environment, and skill sets developed by professional institutes at national level, with rigid screening at entry and subsequent qualification process

 So, consultants with good academic background, gathering knowledge in professional institutes and later in industry are the real players who deliver Oracle or any ERP application with a enviable success rate, else it’s may be a disaster

 Picking up Oracle technical knowledge is not the real challenge, it’s the domain knowledge which counts, this is the truth, this is the empirical reality   

 Why we ventured in Oracle Application consulting

 A R Data Consultants [Singapore] [Incorporated in Singapore in March 1998, ROC No. 52864451C], has been a leading provider of IT based Business solutions encompassing the key areas of finance, accounting, supply chain and manufacturing since 1990 in India

Our Singapore outfit was an extension of Indian operations, when we initiated operations in Singapore in 1988 for the same verticals of services, along with our customized Accounting software for around 50 installation base  

Soon, we took note of  the emerging ERP market which was fast replacing the ‘customized software’ space, and it was the time to venture in and we went for Oracle Application consulting. With the launching of java based 11i apps by Oracle Corporation, we fine tuned our strategy to leverage Business Solutions thru industry centric Oracle Apps platform with global access from anywhere everywhere.

 Later with the release of Oracle R12 application version, the solution could keep pace with the globalization space of our MNC clients. The onslaught of GAAP, IFRS and consolidation requirements could be addressed with ease and comfort. Month end and year end closing cycle were shortened, compliance with ever changing accounting, internal control and audit standards became possible without manual controls by built in checks and balances. Supply chain and out resourcing became easy     

 Our belief and commitment is the root of our success – Oracle is just a high tech tool, first is business knowledge, then deploy this tool, winning clients is just a logical consequence 

 We realized that without an in-depth knowledge of Industry, business, finance, global consolidation, audit compliance skills and GAAP accounting standards, ERP initiative will be a big  mess for our valued clients

 This ‘wisdom of consequences’, our base theme, has paid rich dividend and hence till date we have achieved 100% success rate in our roll outs and have won repeat orders from reputed MNC accounts, in this process we have learned a lot too, which we share with ongoing and future roll outs and support

 Our key consultants carry the legacy of qualifying from national level reputed institutes, working in MNC and Big four audit outfits before venturing in the ERP consulting world
