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...

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!
