Introducing Oracle Supply Chain Event Management

We're honored to publish an article from guest author, Steve Tonas... Enjoy! 

Introducing Oracle Supply Chain Event Management

By Steve Tonas, Vice President, E-Business Suite Development, Oracle

It’s no secret that managing a supply chain is an incredibly complex and risky process. Global competition, increasing customer expectations and shifting business models are just a few of the factors that supply chain management professionals have to navigate as they seek to build and operate world class value-chains that can support profitable growth.

To help customers tackle these challenges, we have introduced Oracle Supply Chain Event Management for the Oracle E-Business Suite. Based on Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Supply Chain Event Management helps organizations manage complexity and risk by providing visibility into events across every link of the extended supply chain. And this doesn’t just include events within your organization. With its advanced analytics, the new solution can also correlate external events to help organizations stay on top of all activities that could impact the supply chain process.

Managing risk and complexity is obviously important, but what if we could also simplify processes? Well, with Oracle Supply Chain Event Management, that’s exactly what we are able to do. The new release includes preconfigured event tracking templates for order fulfillment and spare part orders, while also allowing customers to take advantage of built-in extensions for Oracle JDeveloper. The extensions enable customers to quickly and easily design, edit and generate an end-to-end event tracking application with situation detection and targeted alerts.

By simplifying processes and reducing supply chain risk and complexity, Oracle Supply Chain Event Management helps organizations increase customer satisfaction, reduce costs and improve collaboration. Customers are happier as they have real-time updates into their order status and ultimately receive less late shipments, while end-to-end visibility into supply chain events reduces costs by supporting faster decision making and real-time action. Effective collaboration through context-aware responses and notifications help make all this possible by ensuring appropriate action can be taken to avoid any escalations.

Of course this isn’t the only solution Oracle offers for supply chain executives. In fact, Oracle Supply Chain Event Management builds on the existing Oracle Supply Chain Management applications portfolio, which provides a comprehensive solution to power information-driven value chains.

Gaining a Competitive Advantage with Logistics

Guest author Jon Chorley, Chief Sustainability Officer and Vice President SCM Product Strategy at Oracle shares his perspective on the latest supply chain predictions for 2013.

Sometimes the magic happens behind the scenes. This is very much the case in logistics operations as while it is often an area that is out of sight and out of mind, expectations for near-perfect performance are placing increasing stress on global logistics organizations.

At its Supply Chain Executive conference last year, Gartner did a great job of summarizing the trends impacting logistics operations - environmental issues, risk and compliance, international flow optimization and supply chain execution convergence – but this is definitely a big, important and constantly changing topic that requires ongoing consideration.

That is why we wanted to share an Aviation Week story by Robert Trebilcock that includes comments by our own VP of applications development Hannes Sandmeier. [Read More]

A Look Ahead at Global Supply Chains in 2013 

By Jon Chorley, Chief Sustainability Officer and Vice President SCM Product Strategy, Oracle

It was February and the predictions for 2013 were still rolling in. The latest is from Bob Ferrari, managing director of The Ferrari Consulting and Research Group and executive editor of the Supply Chain Matters Blog.

Every year Bob compiles predictions for the global supply chain for the coming year and we are always eager to hear what makes the cut. The 10 predictions for this year cover everything from cloud computing to the renaissance of U.S. based manufacturing.

Here are a few that caught our eye:

  • Prediction Supply chain organizations must either embrace and augment resiliency and responsiveness capabilities in 2013 or deal with the consequences of poor business outcomes: Volatile and rapid business changes are the new normal which means it’s even more important for forecasting models. Responsiveness requires decision-making capabilities that are anchored in predictive analytics, the ability to assess and respond to various likely business scenarios. “Supply chain control tower” (SCCT) which addresses the need for quicker, more timely and informed supply-chain wide decision-making, will come to the forefront in 2013.
  • Prediction – The executive level voice and shared accountability of the supply chain organization will invariably extend itself into three broader areas: Product design, customer fulfillment, satisfaction and service now cover many more functionally-driven activities and the supply chain now finds itself involved, voluntarily or involuntarily, in each of these areas. One element to this is sustainability – design for sustainability and design for supply chain must come together under a singular initiative.
  • Prediction – Cloud computing and managed services options, enabling supply chain business processes, will continue to gain more traction, provided that vendors resolve current lingering customer concerns: Cloud computing will continue to be an attractive option for small and medium-sized businesses, and the popularity of Platform as a Service (PaaS) will continue to climb.

We agreed with many of the predictions, but would be interested to know what you think. To download the full list of 2013 predictions for global supply chains and see how they align with your views for the coming year, visit Supply Chain Matters.
