How can Fusion benefit you?

Your intro to Fusion, the upgrade path, and potential benefits.

BI-driven Approach

A rich set of functions deliver higher business value by attempting to lead users through everyday decision making using business intelligence (BI) driven approach – from the navigation, to the workflow, to the most basic transaction.

Example: Accounts Payables manager who uses system every day is presented with a menu that has a list of items: invoices, payments, suppliers, and bank accounts. The manager then needs to issue queries to process transactions. In a BI-driven system like Fusion Applications, we proactively alert the manager to what he or she needs to do: “You have five payments whose early discounts are about to expire,” “You have three suppliers on hold,” and “You have seven invoices awaiting your approval.”

Enhanced UI in Fusion products

Using eye tracking techniques, Oracle enhanced screen aesthetics and icon familiarity. The Fusion UI has embedded collaboration throughout, in addition to the embedded analytics.

This not only answers “What do I need to know?” but also “Who do I need to contact?” Multi-channel UIs that include mobile, Outlook, and Office integration enhances your user experience in these products.

Minimal Resource Requirements

Fusion products and middleware is based on industry standard platforms, tools and technologies and moves away from proprietary platforms.

Your IT can manage these systems better and hopefully at a lower cost since you do not need to maintain people with proprietary skills on your staff.

Customizations and integrations with 3rd party applications will be easier due to the open standards in Fusion.

Oracle claims that Fusion will enable them to deliver new applications faster and they will have rock solid quality. IT should technically be able to respond to business needs faster than before.

Enhanced Integration Capabilities

Fusion delivers AIA (Application Integration Architecture) that will make it easy for Oracle applications to integrate with other 3rd party applications and your own custom applications.

Easy Setup

Oracle’s application configuration using declarative tools makes it easy for customers to implement systems, customize and configure. Your staff must undergo training to learn and use this concept.

Deploy Anywhere

Fusion Applications are designed to be deployed either on-premises or as software as a service (SaaS).

Caution – Beware that hybrid application architecture with some applications operating in the cloud and some within your enterprise WILL pose significant integration challenges.

Bottom line – Fusion is here to stay and Oracle will continue to migrate their applications to Fusion as well as create new applications that are Fusion based. Leverage Fusion for your business!
