Different finance departments want different financial solutions. Some may simply require financial reporting while, at the other end of the spectrum, some will want a comprehensive performance management solution. This paper compares different approaches to these choices that are available for the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) environments. The offerings in this space range from simple reporting tools to complete, integrated solutions. While noting the value that targeted toolsets provide, a survey of the available offerings suggests that most organisations are better served by implementing a holistic, integrated approach rather than a hybrid, multivendor approach.
There are obviously a variety of choices open to you: a spreadsheet plug-in may be appropriate if you are only focused on general ledger reporting and do not have concerns over security or compliance. You might also suppose that this is a low-cost option, though we would argue that the remediation required, the additional audit fees and the lack of repeat-ability means that this is a false economy and that this approach will end up costing you more in the long term. A second use case would be where you already have a financial reporting solution installed, when the add-on facilities for purposes such as business intelligence are likely to be your major focus. In this case an Oracle-based solution is likely to be as good as anything else.
