Aria vs Oracle BRM
Oracle Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) is a 20-year-old on-premise product built on client-server technology. Each implementation may be highly customized, requiring costly and scarce expert resources to program in C-language. A typical implementation may take 12–18 months, and requires multiple Oracle software modules that you'll bear the cost of implementing, integrating, and maintaining.
Oracle BRM has enterprise capabilities—the tradeoff is 2–4x longer time to market, less agility, and higher cost.
Aria’s cloud billing and active monetization platform has enterprise capabilities, and it gets products to market in a fraction of the time, supports rapid iterations, and costs a fraction of Oracle BRM. Some highlights are below:
Your business is complex because of the size, scale, geographies, currencies, or diversity of what you offer… or all of the above.
The number of permutations of products, services, options, and pricing can be staggering.
How can we sell all of the products and services in all the ways they need to be offered?
Will we be able to process hundreds of thousands of invoices per day for millions of dollars?
Will we be able to support custom processes?
You have a wide variety of legacy systems you use and would prefer to keep.
Can we keep our existing CRM, Oracle E-Business Suite, tax, collections, payment processors, and e-commerce suite if we want to?
You strive for faster time to market for products and services.
When we have a new business idea, how can we get up and running in months, not years?
Will we be able to capture first-mover advantage and gain a significant revenue upside?
You create, test, and iterate upon new business ideas to find what resonates with customers.
Will we have the business agility to change the product catalog and offer new products/services?
Cloud offerings are not prohibited.
Do we want to leverage the advantage of cloud-based solutions, including lower cost, no patches to apply, automatic upgrades, and no hardware refreshes?
Can we start small with a new business line and scale up easily as demand grows?
Billing touches many parts of your business and many existing systems.
How do we update and synchronize data, automate business processes, and engage customers without creating mountains of code that must be maintained?
