Automating Oracle EBS with RPA

In today’s world of digital advancements, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is becoming one of the most sought-after solutions to help solve business process shortcomings and enhance organizational productivity, efficiency, and stability. With RPA, companies can provide operational excellence, a key component in building a successful business.


Realizing the Benefits of RPA

The benefits of RPA are endless. Its domino effect on business operations and outcomes is immeasurable, and for good reasons. It enables cost-savings and fast ROI; it allows for greater productivity and more accuracy; it’s scalable, and it provides better customer experiences and satisfaction — among many more advantages.


Moreover, RPA improves business outcomes by accelerating workflows, thereby freeing up time for employees to work on higher-level tasks. This shift not only eliminates wasted hours spent on manual, administrative, time-consuming tasks but also improves data quality, productivity, and employee morale. People don’t want to feel like human robots, and RPA frees them up to contribute in more meaningful and advanced ways.


Meanwhile, companies benefit greatly, as RPA bots work around the clock, 24/7, and ensure 100% reliability, speed, and precision. RPA robots are intuitive, and therefore, they are easy to install, use, and configure. It’s as easy as showing your bots what to do and letting them do the work for you.



RPA proves most beneficial on complex data entry applications, such as Oracle EBS and those custom systems developed using Oracle Forms. Many organizations worldwide currently use these applications as their mission-critical, back-office systems, having based their entire day-to-day operations around them. These organizations are now struggling to find an enterprise-level RPA solution to automate the processes trapped in their Oracle applications and enjoy the cost savings, increased flexibility, and improved accuracy of the data entry processes achieved with RPA.

Why does Oracle Forms/EBS need a specialized solution for Robotic Process Automation?

While there are many RPA solutions available, these tools are not made with the complexities and unique sensitivities of Oracle applications in mind. Oracle Forms technology is built differently than other technologies out there today, and as a result, has different needs in order to automate smoothly. Traditional RPA tools may bring significant ROI when automating other applications. Still, Oracle Forms/EBS users will often experience errors, complications, and failures in their automations — ultimately preventing these companies from achieving the results and ROI they’re after.


One example of this was seen in our work with Worthington Industries, a large manufacturing company in the United States. After automating several business flows with a leading RPA vendor, they soon encountered instability and failures, specifically with their Oracle system’s automations. After such a significant investment in their RPA strategy, it led to unstable and unreliable bots, ultimately keeping them from seeing any ROI from their Oracle automation journey. After integrating AuraPlayer as a plug-in into their RPA strategy, Worthington’s problems were finally alleviated, and their automated Oracle applications brought immediate value. 


It is becoming clear that RPA is the key to helping businesses gain and keep momentum, especially as they attempt to adjust to the “new normal” following the pandemic. The global RPA market size is steadily growing, already reaching $1.89 billion in 2021 and expected to rise to $13.74 billion by 2028. And ultimately, the benefits and ROI will almost certainly exceed the costs of deploying RPA. But as we have seen, users of Oracle legacy systems must first ensure that their RPA solution is truly compatible with their system’s needs and complexities. When done right — with an RPA tool that protects and works efficiently with your Oracle applications — there is no doubt that automation can help take your business to the next level.
