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

Oracle Unveils Oracle Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Mobile for Agile We're pleased to feature a blog entry by guest author John Kelley, vice president of product value chain strategy, Oracle
There’s no doubt that the workforce is becoming more mobile with every passing day. And while the mobile workforce offers organizations many benefits, it can pose a challenge to effectively managing complex product lifecycle processes.
To address this challenge and enhance decision making and productivity across the entire lifecycle of a product, Oracle today announced Oracle’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Mobile for Agile. Part of Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management, the new mobile application enables users to quickly, easily and securely access PLM data from any location on their iPad and turn it into valuable and actionable insights. Or in other words, say goodbye to approval bottlenecks!
Built on Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) Mobile, the new Oracle PLM Mobile for Agile application supports strategic and operational decision making and also enables partners to quickly and easily develop and expand applications and processes for Agile PLM customers. With access to comprehensive features and capabilities, users can securely review, respond and react to a broad range of Agile PLM Product Management Workflows. This includes default and configured:
PLM change orders and change requests from a range of sources including engineering, manufacturing, packaging and document.
PLM quality issue workflows including customer complaints, field requests and problem reports.
PLM quality management workflows including corrective action and preventative action (CAPA) processes.
PLM supplier quality workflows including Supplier Corrective Action Requests (SCAR) and Non-Conformance Reports (NCR).
In addition, Oracle Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Mobile for Agile enables users to initiate, execute and manage report quality issues and process flows by providing the mobile capabilities needed to:
Input audit findings and issues on-site, with dynamic links to product quality information and status.
Take advantage of cameras within mobile devices to record dynamic views of any findings as supporting evidence.
Initiate related NCR, problem reports, SCAR, and corrective action requests (CAR), during the audit process.
Last but not least, the new release also supports organizations with outsourced manufacturing and process suppliers by enabling them to conduct on-site supplier audits with access to the product record as needed to manage the process, hasten finding resolution and approve certification.
The combination of all the new capabilities makes it easier than ever to securely access and manage PLM data at any time or from any location. To see how Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Mobile can help your organization, please watch the demo video.
