Introducing a new procurement platform such as Oracle Cloud results in standardisation of the customers procurement processes. As with any Oracle ERP Implementation, the business processes have to be mapped to the ERP system processes, not only that but also the users need to be educated on what the art of possible is on the new ERP platform and the innovations and improvements such solution can bring. Therefore, a sequence of workshops are required with the business users to bring them all on the same page and collaborate with them for the new business processes.
