Preview: SCM Central @ OpenWorld

Our content preview series continues with a spotlight on SCM Central @ OpenWorld -- a destination and program tailored specifically to the Supply Chain Management industry. If you work in SCM, you'll want to take a look at the agenda and opportunities this program will offer.

Located this year in Moscone West, SCM Central will feature dedicated general sessions and track sessions, networking opportunities, and an area in the exhibition hall just for SCM.

Why attend SCM Central? Here are a few reasons:


To uncover best practices from Oracle customers that are gaining a sustainable advantage and driving innovation by transforming their traditional supply chains into integrated value chains.

To find out how to reduce costs while improving customer service and supporting expansion in new markets and product lines.

To hear about Oracle's latest product offerings with Oracle Transportation and Global Trade Management Cloud Service, Oracle Product Value Chain solutions including Oracle Product Value Chain Cloud, and more.

Take a look at some of the sessions for SCM professionals:

Oracle Sustainability Innovation Awards and Executive Panel Discussion

Jon Chorley, CSO & Group Vice President, SCM Product Strategy & PLM, Oracle

Jeff Henley, Executive Vice Chairman, Oracle

In this session, Oracle Executive Vice Chairman of the Board Jeff Henley, Chief Sustainability Officer Jon Chorley, and other Oracle executives honor select customers with the 2015 Oracle Sustainability Innovation Award. This award recognizes customers and their partners that rely on Oracle products to support their sustainable business practices to reduce their environmental impact while improving business efficiencies and reducing costs. The awards presentation is followed by a panel discussion in which customers and Oracle executives discuss how these award-winning organizations are embracing environmental initiatives as a central part of their business strategy and how information technology plays a pivotal role.

Eight Consecutive Gartner Magic Quadrant reports! Oracle Named a Leader for Transportation Management Systems

Gartner recently released its 2015 Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems report and once again, Oracle was named as a leader among its peers in the TMS market.

According to Gartner, “A compelling trend in logistics management is a concept that Gartner calls "supply chain execution convergence," which refers to the need for supply chain organizations to better orchestrate and synchronize processes across functional domains.”

Answering to this trend, Oracle continues to expand upon new technologies and platform updates to support the needs of its customers both locally as well as globally.  Our platform supports customers with both basic transportation needs, as well as those with highly-complex logistics requirements.
