In light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we'd like to take a moment to highlight the inspirational success that Hologic has been achieving in its commitment to providing women and their families with extraordinarily powerful care. Hologic, a global medical device company introduced the world's first 3-D Mammography system, which is able to detect early-stage cancers and reduce false-positive diagnoses compared to traditional 2-D mammogram diagnoses.

Don't Just Help Your Customers Embrace Innovation - Help Employees, Too

We’re living and working in the 21st century marketplace, where innovation has become the engine of growth. Although innovation is generally perceived as a good thing, it means change which can be difficult for people to accept or act upon. That means that making innovation happen still boils down to being an effective leader of people, one who inspires a vision and lays a path to get there.

Companies have developed sophisticated marketing and sales processes to help customers embrace innovation. Think of all the personalized emails, social outreach, customer reviews, product comparison charts, and mobile apps you’ve encountered. But those companies who are getting really good at innovation aren’t just helping their customers embrace innovation, they’re helping their employees be innovative too.

Helping employees embrace being innovative has its advantages. In a March 2012 article featured in...

PLM, Product Value Chain, and My Backyard Garden

It’s July and as the temperatures rise here in the US, I’m looking forward to summertime cook-outs, vacations, and sipping a cool beverage poolside. Summer is my favorite season, so every Spring I enjoy the anticipation by trying my hand at gardening. But looking in the backyard now, while all my neighbors’ gardens are flourishing, mine only shows a handful of green tomatoes, unhealthy squash, and fist-sized watermelons. This happened last year, too. After all that springtime effort and investment, this is maddening!

My Fruit & Vegetable Development Problem

My garden can be described with one word: meh. My frustration reminds me of the challenges that product development executives share with us in early meetings – unable to achieve their expected return, inconsistent product information, can’t produce the final product on time nor on budget, not sure what caused defects, no way to tell if a project is bad and needs refocusing or abandoning, and so on.

What’s Happening?

Growing delicious vegetables from seed takes more than... [Read More]

Product Compliance Should Not Impede Innovation

Depending on severity, product compliance issues can cause all sorts of problems from run-away budgets to business closures. But effective policies and safeguards can create a strong foundation that promotes innovation rather than stifle it. The right solution for your business should foster productivity, market penetration and competitive advantage. If you’ve been putting off a systematic approach to product compliance, today’s increasingly regulated market has made now an important time to reconsider that decision, or indecision.

Why now?  No matter what industry, companies face a litany of worldwide and regional regulations that require proof of product compliance and environmental friendliness for market access. For many companies in several industries, complying with the changing Conflict Minerals Law is...

A Discussion with Oracle's Expert on Innovation Management

Gayle HayesA few weeks ago I had the opportunity to sit down with our resident expert on Innovation Management, Gayle Hayes. I picked her brain on what’s going on in the world of product and service innovation and how Oracle is helping. A new phenomenon is sweeping product development – thanks to an explosion of ideation tools and techniques such as crowd-sourcing, big data, mashups, customer immersion labs, etc, finding ideas is not the problem. With so many to choose from, the biggest questions are now “which idea?” and subsequently, “how do you translate the right idea into a profitable product?"

This is precisely the challenge the new Oracle Innovation Management is designed to address. To learn more about the idea glut and how the new solution helps organizations improve return on innovation investments, read the transcript of our discussion below or stream our podcast. You can even find us on iTunes!
