E-Business Suite Compliance Issues

There are two kinds of license compliance issues related to E-Business Suite:

  • Issues related to over-usage or wrong usage of EBS modules
  • Issues related to using Oracle Technology products with E-Business Suite.
EBS Over Usage Compliance Issues
  • Counting Application Users
  • Cloning Production systems onto Production & Test
  • End-dating of users

  • Using wrong metrics
Issues of Using Database & Weblogic with E-Business Suite

This is possibly the biggest concern small businesses face while using E-Business Suite. Larger companies generally do not have this as a direct challenge.
