Agile in the News: a Recap of Recent Customer Announcements

If it seems like you've seen more of Oracle's Agile PLM in the news recently, you're right.  We've had several interesting stories in the past month or so to announce, particularly around customer momentum.  Here's a recap:

Kroger generated plenty of buzz when it was announced the company selected Oracle's Agile PLM for Process solution to improve customer experience.  Chris Hjelm, Chief Information Officer, Kroger, is quoted in the Oracle Press Release saying, "We look forward to leveraging Oracle's Agile PLM for Process solution as we further streamline operations, improve the customer experience, and lead the grocery market through innovation and a commitment to excellence."

In Life Sciences industry news, Stryker released a case study about how they established an Enterprisewide Quality Management System with Agile PLM applications.  The story details how Stryker used the product quality management tools to cut change cycle time by 50% and improve first-pass yield of change by 90%.  They've also increased transparency to reduce the average number of corrective and preventative actions (CAPA) open at any time by more than 40% and accelerate resolutions.  AGA Medical (acquired by St. Jude Medical in 2010) also participated in a case study about drastically improving productivity and creating an enterprisewide integrated quality system with Agile PLM.  AGA Medical was able to reduce change order times from 26 days to just 4.5 days, an 83% time reduction, while including more information under appropriate controls.  The Agile solution also controls the item master for the company's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne implementation, allowing Agile to manage the approved as-designed item configuration and JD Edwards to manage the as-built device, allowing significant flexibility in managing change and complexity of the product, reducing cost and time to implement changes and speeding system business process changes.

In the High Technology arena, Secure Meters Limited announced in a case study their work with Oracle Consulting to replace ten legacy engineering systems with Oracle's Agile PLM applications.  There are several impressive results, including reduced engineering change order turnaround-time by 50%, reduced defects per software build by 40%, improved potential earnings before interest and taxes per product developer by 40%, and accelerated time-to-market for utility meters by reducing product development cycle time by more than 25%.  And in a video interview, John Hitchcock of Pace (formerly 2Wire), explained to me, Oracle's PLM Product Marketing Manager, Kerrie Foy, how they saved $4 million dollars by adding the Agile Product Cost Management application to their footprint!
