The Oracle Cloud — previously known as “Oracle Fusion” — is a line of products that may have initially appeared to be a targeted bet and experiment for Oracle as it explored native SaaS development and deployment models and attempted to combine the strengths of different organic and acquired assets in a common suite. Oracle Cloud, since this initial vision, has matured considerably, both in capability, but more important, in strategic value to Oracle. In the first two installments in this Spend Matters PRO research series, we explored Oracle’s overall procurement portfolio and eBusiness Suite (EBS) procurement capabilities in detail (as well as iProcurement Endeca extensions and how partner Vinimaya integration strengthens the capabilities of iProcurement). In this third installment, we explore the Oracle Procurement Cloud product and offer our perspective on the history of the solution, optimal customers and partner integration (and capabilities) with Vinimaya. We also offer our take on how Oracle Procurement Cloud stacks up to the competition.
