Determine Pricing for an Oracle ERP System

ERP implementation, upgrade or migration projects can be expensive. However, running modern software such as JD Edwards EnterpriseOne or a cloud solution is a vital component to your business’ success. An ERP system is an investment in the longevity and prosperity of your company – simply put, it’s a business decision.

Pricing depends on the Oracle ERP software you choose, and is absolutely an important factor. ERP Cloud and NetSuite are offered as SaaS subscriptions – a monthly cost for as long as your use the software. Oracle JD Edwards has options for financing or buying the software licenses up front. For all ERP products, the number of users affects pricing.

What You Need to Know About Upgrades

While Oracle’s ERP software can be run on a SaaS-type model in which smaller updates are pushed out more frequently, if you’re running an older platform, your company might need to upgrade to continue receiving support. As with a new implementation, Terillium follows a multi-step methodology when upgrading, which begins with planning and choosing your project team, to ensure the smoothest transition for your users.

Companies that already run their business on JD Edwards should consider upgrading to the latest version of EnterpriseOne. While your version is still functional for your business, making the move to the EnterpriseOne ensures you are able to utilize the latest tools and integrations available through Oracle’s continuous delivery system of updates.

ERP Cloud and NetSuite users receive upgrades periodically as Oracle pushes updates to your software through the cloud. Your system is always up to date with the latest features and, most importantly, best security.
