After much delay and fanfare, Oracle has finally made its Oracle Fusion a reality. I saw the Oracle Fusion CRM at the last OpenWorld, but only now have I had a chance to review Oracle Fusion ERP, aka Oracle Fusion Financial Management. The name of course points to the accounting software, in largest part because the product is still thin, but being built out to ultimately become a full Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution. It doesn't yet come anywhere near matching the capabilities of other legacy systems such as PeopleSoft, JD Edwards or even the E-Business Suite, let alone the capabilities of SAP ERP or SAP Business Suite, but the technology is impressive and the customer choice options of on-demand (aka Software as a Service or SaaS) or on-premise or a hybrid combination of both is impressive. As I get deeper into this ERP software solution I'll be penning some additional comments.
