Oracle Drives Strategic Cost Management With New In-Memory Application for Oracle E-Business Suite

Oracle In-Memory Cost Management for Process Industries Helps Organizations Make Faster and Better Decisions That Impact the Bottom Line

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) -- Oracle Value Chain Summit 2014

News Summary
In today's global manufacturing environment, process manufacturers face a multitude of challenges due to regulatory compliance, stringent quality processes, and increasing manufacturing costs. In order to accurately calculate margins and maximize profits, these organizations must gather, maintain, and analyze growing volumes of current and historical cost data. However, existing cost management solutions have not kept up with the exploding volumes of cost data across global manufacturing operations and various supply chains. To help solve this critical business need, Oracle has introduced Oracle In-Memory Cost Management for Process Industries for Oracle E-Business Suite. Utilizing the extreme performance delivered by Oracle Engineered Systems, the new Oracle In-Memory Applications enable real-time insight across virtually all aspects of cost management, allowing process organizations to maximize revenue, increase profits, and optimize operational costs and working capital.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
