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...

That's a Wrap for the 2nd Annual Oracle Value Chain Summit

 We're pleased to feature this article by Rick Jewell on the success of the Oracle Value Chain Summit 2014.

Rick Jewell, Senior Vice President of Applications Development, Oracle

The second annual Oracle Value Chain Summit held in San Jose, California concluded earlier this month and by all accounts, it was a resounding success.

We welcomed more than 2,100 customers, partners and industry analysts from 27 different countries to the event this year. In fact, customer attendance was nearly 60 percent higher than the previous year, a clear testament to Oracle’s growing momentum in the supply chain industry. From the beginning to the end, there was a palpable energy amongst the crowds in sessions, demo areas and networking receptions.

Business users chose from more than 200 sessions from different supply chain tracks, including, 150+ customer speaking sessions, as well as keynotes that featured Oracle President Mark Hurd and best-selling author Geoffrey Moore.

Mark’s keynote covered a lot of interesting points as he explained how the combination of globalization, the explosion of data, mobility and more demanding customers has made the supply chain more complex than ever. Organizations are balancing the need to control costs while meeting customer demands; and as Mark highlighted, consumers are now more sophisticated. A missed delivery date can result in not only loss of sale, but now thanks to social, a reputation nightmare. A staggering 26% of customers will post negative feedback about products online.

Along similar lines, I presented the idea of the customer-centric supply chain and planning. In a time where it has become even harder for organizations to differentiate themselves, organizations can no longer focus on just ensuring inventory is there when customers need it but also need to optimize the overall customer experience in order to stand out in the crowd.

This is just a slice of what we talked about at the event. Presentations and collateral from the Oracle Value Chain Summit are now available for download at: http://oracle.ovcs2014.virtualcollateral.com. Use the password: ovcs2014

If you missed the event and are eager to hear how Oracle is keeping the supply chain moving at the speed of business, you can always catch the European Value Chain Summit taking place March 18 & 19 in Amsterdam. Otherwise, stay tuned for details about next year’s Oracle Value Chain Summit.

Oracle Global Trade Management Achieves AES Certification to Support End-to-End Customs Filing Process

By Derek Gittoes, Vice President, Value Chain Execution Product Strategy, Oracle

In global trade today, it is critical that all organizations think globally, but act locally. This is particularly true when it comes to ensuring compliance with increasingly complex regional Customs processes and procedures.

At Oracle we understand this need, which is why we are pleased that Oracle Customs Management, part of Oracle Global Trade Management, has achieved Automated Export System (AES) certification from the U.S. Census Bureau (Department of Commerce). AES is the government system that collects Electronic Export Information (EEI) required for export declarations and government statistics.

With this AES-certified solution, customers can significantly reduce their overall export spend by filing directly with the U.S. Government through Oracle Global Trade Management. Not just that, but by eliminating the need for trading partners to rekey data, organizations can ensure more accurate and timely filings, saving considerable effort, time and money.

In addition, the certification incorporates AES filing into the export workflow, enabling organizations to monitor the process through notifications and status updates. This further streamlines complex processes and procedures by giving a holistic view of Customs transactions.

Customers can start taking advantage of the certification now!

Oracle Unveils Oracle Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Mobile for Agile

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.
