The release has particular relevance to organizations looking to integrate applications that support supply chain processes, because it includes integrations among Oracle’s Agile applications for product lifecycle management (PLM) and Oracle’s Demantra applications for demand management.
The prebuilt integration accelerator supports enterprise processes that connect the PLM product records and recipes in Agile Product Lifecycle Management for Process with Oracle Process Manufacturing.
Oracle Value Chain Planning Integration Base Pack, which previously delivered prebuilt integration of Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne solutions with Oracle value chain planning solutions and Demantra Demand Management, has now been extended to include integration of Oracle’s PeopleSoft supply chain management with Demantra Demand Management.
