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.
