Imagine that you could, in a moment’s notice, access your entire portfolio of projects or products in one view, including cost and profitability. Now imagine that your customer service representatives had real-time access to your customers’ historical order information and profitability while taking orders. That kind of speed and agility changes the game. Imagine new growth opportunities, smarter decisions, reduced costs, and all the benefits that come with being able to outsmart and outmaneuver your competition.
But this isn’t about imagining. We’ve made it a reality with the new Oracle In-Memory Applications for Oracle Engineered Systems.
As announced at COLLABORATE 13 last month, our new in-memory applications make older computing approaches obsolete and can take runtime out of the equation. Now you can have instant access to scads of information and perform complex data analysis in near real time on live data sets. The result is better context and insights to solve your critical business problems.
Here’s the really good news! We have released Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne In-Memory Applications – specifically, Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne In-Memory Project Portfolio Management and Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne In-Memory Sales Advisor.
Oracle’s Engineered Systems make it possible for us to provide functionality in these applications that we couldn’t deliver before. For example, in the past, a team of data analysts would use the Extract, Transfer and Load (ETL) methodology, plus spreadsheets, to pull data. The information you would receive was stale, the manual process was error prone, and the conclusions could be questionable. Today, with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne In-Memory Applications, you get immediate access to massive sets of near real-time transactional information that is broad and deep. Your data is fresher, richer, and more accurate. Which would you rather use to base your business decisions on?
We are very excited about what these In-Memory Applications mean for our JD Edwards customers. We’ve seen the increased speed and improved visibility translate directly to increased revenue and profitability.
And just so you know, we are in the process of making In-Memory Apps available for the other Oracle Applications business lines. As we roll these high-performance solutions out and as the technology continues to evolve, you can trust that Oracle will be a leader to meet your performance and agility needs – even those you can’t imagine today. In the meantime, let’s focus on the exciting possibilities that these In-Memory Applications bring to us and the dawn of a new era in enterprise applications.
