Chain Planning - Reference Sizing Tool (RAS) provides Capacity &
Deployment planning for the Value Chain Planning customers. It is part
of your early sales cycle to qualify, scope and budget your
opportunity. It provides a System Sizing for Oracle Software on Oracle
Hardware as well as competitor hardware. The tool provides guidelines
on what the customer should consider for deployment of Value Chain
Planning, as well as a comparison to Oracle hardware. The tool will
advise on suitable hardware and software configuration based on the user
responses to a series of questions related to the customer
requirements. The more accurate the input, the more accurate the
results will be.
The output reports can be used as a sizing estimate. Most typical scenario is for a System Integrator (SI) to provide the inputs based on the customer’s implementation strategy.
With a unified methodology across all Oracle software and hardware, RAS supports greenfield as well as consolidation or hardware refresh opportunities. The extremely quick turnover and what-if scenarios enables you to help guide you through the sales-implementation cycle. Results displayed are estimates based on benchmark results produced by Oracle and best practices gained over the years from customer support and feedback.
