Five Good Reasons to Fast-Track Your R12.1 Upgrades

Since Oracle E-Business Suite Value Chain Planning Release 12.1 was launched last summer, early adopters have gotten a jump on efficiently designing, planning, and servicing their global supply chains. A growing number of organizations are now considering a similar move to R12.1. Here are five good reasons to take the plunge:

1. Oracle Advanced Planning Command Center: This set of reporting, workflow, and analytics tools give supply chain executives real-time insights into supply chain performance and identify areas for improvements. Configurable alerts help supply chain managers proactively respond to deviations in performance and emerging problems.

2. Oracle Service Parts Planning: Strategies for enhancing highly profitable service contracts (see related story) benefit from the forecasting and replenishment planning workbench and integration with Oracle Supply Chain Management and Oracle Service applications.

3. Oracle Demand Signal Repository: A group of technologies help companies quickly gather point-of-sale data, cleanse it, and store it in a common format for easy analysis. The repository can translate retail data into manufacturers’ terms, including item identifications, manufacturer hierarchies, and production calendars.

4. Oracle BI Publisher: This XML-based tool lets organizations easily update and modify reports as business requirements change, rather than completely rewriting the documents.

5. Oracle Fusion Middleware: The technology offers an open, modular architecture that can be deployed with Oracle E-Business Suite or third party back-end systems. The architecture lets organizations plug in new applications as needed without expensive reconfigurations and modifications.
