Financial transactions are usually not singular activities. Rather, a single transaction is only
a step in the lifecycle of a particular business flow and usually leads to several additional transactions. In fact, a single initial transaction can lead to 20-50 additional transactions.
These “transaction multipliers” drive up the volume of financial transactions at increasingly higher velocities, so it is important that scalability tests take multipliers into account.
Oracle has conducted controlled tests designed to measure the scalability of Oracle ERP Cloud Services against high-volume business activities. The tests demonstrated that the cloud service exceeded expected processing capabilities for very large volumes of transactions and easily surpassed scalability expectations.
