Silicon Image Improves Operational Efficiencies Using Oracle

Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation, Oracle Business Intelligence Applications and Oracle Identity Management Provide Insight into Critical Data and Improve Processes

Redwood Shores, CA - July 6, 2011

News Facts

Oracle today announced that Silicon Image, a leading provider of wireless and wired HD connectivity solutions, has implemented Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation and Oracle Identity Management, two key components of Oracle Fusion Middleware, to streamline its business intelligence (BI) and identity management initiatives.
By implementing its Oracle BI solution, Silicon Image was able to take advantage of the intuitive, role-based intelligence capabilities viewed through interactive, customizable dashboards showcasing financial, human resources (HR), and operational information and reports.
Specifically, Silicon Image deployed Oracle BI Enterprise Edition within weeks running on top of an Oracle data warehouse. Silicon Image’s BI solution delivers customized dashboards and reports featuring data from critical Oracle and non-Oracle applications and data sources including the Oracle E-Business Suite Financial Management and Oracle E-Business Suite Manufacturing applications as well as third-party CRM and HR systems.
Company executives now have timely access to dashboards refreshed daily that span sales, actuals, projections, expenses, time and labor, and more, to help improve decision making processes.
As a result of the ease-of-use of its BI solution, Silicon Image greatly increased its user adoption as participants could simply access dashboards and reports, including drilling down into data.
Silicon Image is testing Oracle Supply Chain and Order Management Analytics in development. This prebuilt Oracle BI Application enables organizations to assess inventory levels, determine likely product fulfillment needs before the order has been booked, quickly identify potential order backlog issues, and stay on top of critical accounts receivable (A/R) and daily sales outstanding (DSO) issues.
Using Oracle Identity Management, the company has been able to automate key processes like on-boarding and off-boarding, reduce manual administrative tasks like password management, and improve user productivity by granting employees self service access to the right information, at the right time. The upgrade helped reduce the helpdesk ticket count per on-boarding/off-boarding occurrence by more than 70 percent.
Additionally, Oracle Identity Management helped Silicon Image to significantly streamline its regulatory compliance requirements by providing a single report to auditors to determine who had access to specific resources, information and accounts, as opposed to numerous reports each needing to be analyzed and logged.
