Closing Remarks on Oracle Value Chain Summit 2015

Wow, it’s hard to believe another Oracle Value Chain Summit has come and gone. What a whirlwind of a week! From Oracle’s Glenn Seninger’s Welcome on Monday afternoon to yesterday’s final track sessions, the San Jose Convention Center was thrumming with everything product and supply chain.  And it doesn't have to end here...

The entire Oracle team is thrilled and humbled by the outpouring of customer, sponsor, analyst, staff, and speaker support. We were delighted to see so many attendees this year, especially given the harsh weather conditions elsewhere making travel difficult. This community is clearly dedicated to forging new connections, sharing best practices, and exploring the future of value chain excellence.

Oracle’s CEO Mark Hurd perhaps said it best in his keynote on Tuesday morning: “I have incredible respect for people who actually run supply chains.” And for good reason. Supply chain leaders are at the forefront of...

Oracle’s CEO Mark Hurd wrote last week about How Cloud Computing Is Revolutionizing Business and noted “Cloud computing is triggering a stunning shift in how businesses operate. I believe that the companies that will thrive in this new world will be those that embrace cloud computing”

So when it comes to PLM, what could a modernized product development function do for you, what does one look like, and how do you make it happen?...

New solution from Oracle for project managers and planners to enhance collaboration and decision-making

When most people think of a supply chain they think of a manufacturing supply chain where a product is designed an launched and built thousands or millions of times. But there is also a section of industry where the products are one-off, very complex, and are only built one time. These are project supply chains.  Traditional manufacturing supply chains are well understood and well supported by supply chain software. Project supply chains are understood, but have not been well supported by software tools.

Project managers have traditionally used PERT and GANTT chart software (like Oracle Primavera) to manage their projects, but they haven't had access to modern supply planning tools like Oracle ASCP or inventory optimization tools.  This is no longer a problem, as Oracle has introduced the Oracle solution for Project-Driven Supply Chain. The new solution integrates Oracle Value Chain Planning and Oracle's Primavera project portfolio management solutions to help organizations better align material planning, decision-making, and execution throughout the project lifecycle.

By integrating Oracle Value Chain Planning and Oracle's Primavera project portfolio management solutions to deliver complete visibility into projects, the new initiative helps organizations balance and adjust material and manufacturing capacity decisions to better adhere to project milestones and avoid unexpected delays and costs. In addition, integration with Oracle E-Business Suite allows team members to make preemptive and accurate project decisions regarding schedule delays, cost overruns, or wastage by providing a real-time view into business information, including interactive charts and metrics.

For more information on this new solution, check out the whitepaper, and the solution overview.

An article published in this month's Consumer Goods Technology, entitled "Land O' Lakes Reinforces the Business Through IT", by Lisa Terry provides some great insights on how Land O' Lakes transformed their business and supply chain through IT leadership.
