GLOBALFOUNDRIES Accelerates Innovation while Protecting IP with AutoVue for Agile

GLOBALFOUNDRIES is a full-service semiconductor foundry with a global footprint. Launched in March 2009, the company quickly grew to be the second-largest foundry in the world, providing a unique combination of advanced technology and manufacturing to more than 160 customers. With operations in Singapore, Germany, and the United States, GLOBALFOUNDRIES is the only foundry that offers the flexibility of having secure manufacturing centers that span three continents.

We sat down with Kishan Shah, Manager of PLM Practice at GLOBALFOUNDRIES so that he can explain how Oracle AutoVue integrated with Oracle Agile PLM supports the company’s mission of “turning sand into gold” ; enabling collaborative design-for-manufacturing and fostering innovation, all while protecting critical intellectual property.

Seeing the Forest – Next Generation Visualization

The biggest challenge that we have as enterprise users is to quickly find the information we need in order to make the most optimal business decisions on a daily basis. Now, the challenge is that information is there, somewhere, but it is typically distributed across a mass of data and screens. So how do you “see” this information quickly and easily? How can we present “less” while delivering “more”? That is the objective of Oracle’s Next Generation Visualization, which will be presented at the Oracle Value Chain Summit (San Francisco, Feb 4-6, 2013) during a session entitled “Seeing the Forest – Next Generation Visualization” (Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 3:15 pm). It is not about new skins and layouts, it is about a radical re-think of how Enterprise Applications should interact with users. The session will show how Oracle Fusion Applications is embracing new paradigms for presenting, interpreting and interacting with complex business information in a simplified and compelling way so that they can see the forest through the trees! Don’t miss this opportunity to get exclusive sneak peeks at ground-breaking technology! We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!

Palm Beach County Accelerates Development Permit Process and Improves Efficiency by 25%

Are you looking for ways to optimize your digital building permit application and review process? If so, be sure to check out the most recent AutoVue customer snapshot featuring Palm Beach County.

Palm Beach County’s Land Development Division is responsible for issuing permits for road construction of the county’s more than 3,000 roads, utility work, landscaping, irrigation and onsite drainage reviews of commercial, industrial, and some residential facilities.  To manage the vast amounts of paperwork required for these processes, the county implemented an electronic permitting (ePermitting) system, which incorporates Oracle’s AutoVue visualization solution as an essential component.

Oracle’s AutoVue has allowed the various agencies within the county to simultaneously review documents, digitally comment on and markup plans, as well as compare resubmitted plans, all of which has helped to standardize and streamline workflows for permit reviewers.  

Read how Palm Beach County has:

  • provided structure to the permit review and approval process
  • decreased review time and improved efficiency of permitting processes by 25%
  • given customers around-the-clock ability to submit and track applications and plans
  • improved accountability

How to be omniscient ...

OK, so now that I have your attention … let’s not get carried away … we’re not taking about a supreme being here … we all know, it’s not possible to know everything … but what if you could have access to the right information whenever you wanted it ….

Well, a couple of decades ago, that would have been possible only if you could have superhuman speed and lived in a library, but nowadays we can do that by just using internet search engines.

Remember how we went through a phase of having too much information on our finger tips and people typically referred to it as an ‘information overload’ era. Well, the information is still there, but Internet search engines changed the landscape by making that information accessible and meaningful. Today, we are so spoiled to get the right info on the first page of our search results that we rarely go to the 2nd page. We even don’t bother to remember things anymore since we can just ‘google’ it.

That’s all fine with the information that is publicly available. What about your intellectual property which needs to be secure and reside within the walls of your organization? Don’t you want to have the same type of access internally? I am sure the answer is yes, but then you might wonder... how?

Well, all you need is a crawler to go look for documents, extract text from them, index them and then allow the users to easily search and locate them. You may say … this can easily be done today with my operating system. True, but that’s from a personal productivity stand point because OS’s can search as long as your files are accessible to them. However, in a large organization, your documents are probably scattered across multiple data stores, which have different interfaces and a wide range of security restrictions. What if you are dealing with a lot of CAD data which cannot be searched by a typical OS?

What you need is then an application that can retrieve information from many different data sources and support many types of file formats. As far as I know, there is no vendor that can provide a solution out of the box that can reach out and get information from multiple data sources, support all types of engineering and office documents, index them and then allow the end user to search them securely.

One such solution that we have built is the combination of Oracle Universal Content Management (UCM), Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) and AutoVue, which is available today. This solution is very unique because of the following reasons:

  • As long as you have Oracle UCM and AutoVue, there is no additional cost to using this solution since Secure Enterprise Search is shipped with UCM with a restricted use license.
  • AutoVue supports many many file types, including Office, PDF, 2d and 3D, so the chances are your file type is already covered
  • The solution is very easy to use, as it has a google-like interface, which is familiar to most, so you don’t need to be a DBA or administrator to use it. If you also have the VueLink for UCM, you can view the documents directly from the search results
  • SES supports a multitude of other content repositories as well, so the solution can easily be extended (with a full licence of SES and relevant Connectors ) to allow other data sources to be searched; and if your data source is not supported by SES, it allows building custom add-ons by exposing standards based APIs
  • Finally, since you have AutoVue as part of this solution, you an also take advantage of many other great features of AutoVue such as viewing, annotation, comparison, measurement, digital mockup, real-time collaboration etc. etc.

So perhaps this solution will not make you omniscient … but at least you can make the right decisions, save time and have access to the most up to date information in your enterprise, and do all this quickly, easily and securely.

Three Easy Ways of Providing Feedback to the Oracle AutoVue Team

Customer feedback is essential in helping us deliver best-in-class Enterprise Visualization solutions which are centered around real-world usage. As the Oracle AutoVue Product Management team is busy prioritizing the next round of improvements, enhancements and new innovation to the AutoVue platform, I thought it would be a good idea to provide our blog-readers with a recap of how best to provide product feedback to the AutoVue Product Management team. This gives you the opportunity to help shape our future agenda and make our solutions better for you.

  1. Enterprise Visualization Special Interest Group (EV SIG): the AutoVue EV SIG is a customer-driven initiative that has recently been created to share knowledge and information between members and discuss common and best practices around Enterprise Visualization. The EV SIG also serves as a mechanism for establishing and communicating to AutoVue Product Management users’ collective priorities for the future development, direction and enhancement of the AutoVue product family with the objective of ensuring their continuous improvement. Essentially, EV SIG members meet in order to share and prioritize feedback and use this input to begin dialog with the AutoVue Product Management team on what they deem to be the most important improvements to Enterprise Visualization solutions. The AutoVue EV SIG is by far the best platform for sharing and relaying feedback to our Product Strategy / Management team regarding general product enhancements, industry-specific scenarios, new use cases, usability, support, deployability, etc, and helping us shape the future direction of Enterprise Visualization solutions. We strongly encourage ALL our customers to sign up for the SIG;  here is how you can do so:
  2. Customer / Partner Advisory Boards: The AutoVue Product Strategy / Management team also periodically runs Customer and Partner Advisory Boards. These invitation-only events bring together individuals chosen from Oracle AutoVue’s top customers that are using AutoVue at the enterprise level, as well as strategic partners.  The idea here is to establish open lines of communication between top customers and partners and the Oracle AutoVue Product Strategy team, help us communicate AutoVue’s product direction, share perspectives on today and tomorrow’s challenges and needs for Enterprise Visualization, and validate that proposed additions to the product are valid industry solutions. Our next Customer / Partner Advisory Board will be held in San Francisco during Oracle Open World, please contact your account manager to find out more about the CAB Members’ nomination process.
  3. Enhancement Requests:  Enhancement requests are request logged by customers or partners with Product Development for a feature that is not currently available in Oracle AutoVue. Enhancement requests (ER) can be logged easily via the My Oracle Support portal. This is the best way to share feedback with us at the functionality level; for instance if you would like to see a new format supported in AutoVue or make suggestions as per how certain functionality can be improved or should behave. Once the ER is logged, it is then evaluated by Product Management based on feasibility, product adequation and business justification. Product Management then decides whether to consider this ER for future release or not. What helps accelerate the process is hearing from a large number of customers who urgently need a particular feature or configuration. Hence the importance of logging My Oracle Support Service Requests, and describing in details your business expectations. You can include key milestones dates and justifications as to why this request is important and the benefits your organization stands to gain should this request be accepted.

Again, feedback from customers and partners is critical to ensure we offer solutions that have the biggest impact on customers’ business processes and day-to-day operations. All feedback is welcome,. So please don’t be shy!
