Chief Sustainability Officer and Group Vice President, Supply Chain Management Product Strategy
With today’s seismic volatility in market demand and supply constraints, manufacturers and shippers are faced with logistics challenges to meet customer demands. Customers want their complete orders to arrive in perfect condition, delivered on time, to the right place. Meeting and exceeding these expectations require the need for real-time end-to-end visibility, and better understanding of data to make faster and actionable decisions. In this session, learn how you can achieve consistent and on-time deliveries through Oracle’s transportation and warehouse management solutions, integrated with intelligent applications, including IoT fleet and cargo monitoring, yard management, machine learning, scenario modeling, and digital assistants.
Manufacturers are undergoing a transformation within their businesses to meet the requirements of the digital age. Service is the new battleground for driving sales, capturing and retaining customers and service offerings are reshaping business models. Everything from music to complex products such as vehicles and jet engines can be delivered as a service. However, making these business models profitable is not easy. It requires a “new operating model” that provides the flexibility needed for new revenue models such as offering “products as a service”, “pay-as-you-go” and subscription-based models. Join us to learn how to make new, service- oriented business models profitable.

Innovation through new products or services or adapting your existing product mix to market changes requires flexible and rapid integrated business planning. It also requires timely insights from supply chain execution systems from order management through logistics, manufacturing and procurement. The Oracle Cloud offers an Integrated Business Planning and Execution solution that provides high level planning features supporting strategic decision making and tightly integrated execution data to manage real time operations. New features like the Oracle Planning Advisor, uses artificial intelligence to provide recommended actions, reducing planner data management tasks and driving execution toward company objectives for managing costs and improving customer service. Increasingly large planning and execution data environments can also benefit from Planning Advisors recommendation engine as it highlights plan to actual variance in real time, helping planners fully understand changing trends and disruption and reduce decision making latency.

Oracle’s approach for future supply chain and factories of the future encompasses an array of intelligent applications and embedded technologies. We can help you demystify and easily assimilate IoT, blockchain and AI concepts and technologies into your digital strategy to create innovative services with less risk. Managing and analyzing the enormous amount of real-time data generated by the multitude of IoT-connected devices demands a multi-faceted robust IoT solution that incorporates the latest innovations such as digital twins, machine-learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI) and edge computing. Multi-enterprise visibility can be achieved with blockchain embedded within supply chain applications.
As hyper-globalization continues to shrink our global village at a rapid pace, we must collectively embrace the fact that our global workforces should reflect the diversity of our customers. We all know that “representation matters” and yet many multi-national corporations still have a long way to go when it comes to the representation of women, people of color, and other under-represented communities within their respective workforces. Countless studies have proven that global workforces that embed diversity and inclusion into their culture are more financially profitable. As multi-national corporations race to expand their employee workforces to represent the true diversity of their global customer base, many companies like Oracle understand this ever-evolving business imperative.
In this panel, Oracle executive leaders will share their thought leadership on the value to build a more diverse and inclusive culture.
