Business Process Controls

We understand the key business process control challenges faced by organisations using Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle ERP Cloud include:


  • Oracle has more than 10,000+ business process options that can be set, with little documentation on which of these enforce key controls
  • What is normal, expected and good practice will differ between industries and will depend on which business processes are being supported by Oracle
  • Business process options are often set for individual organisations or ledgers within Oracle – no exception reports exist by default to identify where these are oddities, nor the combinations that might be expected for different types of business
  • Available controls differ by EBS versions or ERP Cloud Releases – it’s very difficult to remain up to date with these options


This is why we offer consulting services to help you design and implement best practice business process controls into both Oracle and its supporting processes, along with our unique and bespoke Process Controls Analytics service
