Guest post by
Michael J. Lee, Social Strategist, Infosys

 

Shibu and Radical Progress

Continuing the tradition of preceding Larry Ellison's keynote, Infosys CEO S. D. Shibulal opened by celebrating 3 ideas which changed the world: the Wright brothers' flight, the discovery of Penicillin, and Berner-Lee's first web site. In chronological order, this progression came from individual inventors, research institutions, and then corporations. Now corporations are the new centers of innovation and discovery, and they are driving radical progress in 3 ways: product and process innovation, creating new consumer experiences, and business model innovation.

Radical Progress : Infosys Keynote at Oracle OpenWorld 2012

Guest post by
Abhishek Sabharwal, Principal Consultant, Infosys

 

They say the time stops at Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) when a keynote is on! Thousands of folks from our industry (clients, partners, media, analysts, academia) get charged up to know more about what's coming in the ever dynamic IT world, waiting patiently much before the keynote actually starts. While yesterday's keynotes were focused around innovations in hardware, social, cloud that Oracle continues to drive, the focus of Infosys keynote was about Radical Progress. I quickly reconfirmed the meaning of the world radical on my iphone and it said, something that changes the fundamentals. The first thing that I could think of was the world moving from flat to being round by Galileo which was then challenged by the church as well.

Oracle E-Business suite on Exadata - A Reality

Guest post by
Vinayak Gangadhar Kurdekar, Technology Lead, Infosys

 

Exadata when it was launched by Oracle a couple of years back initially created a sensation in the market as a hardware platform engineered by Oracle in collaboration with HP for hosting large databases. Later as time progressed and technology matured, Exadata became synonymous as a machine that provided extreme performance and scalability for both OLTP and datawarehouse applications.  Both Oracle developer and DBA community had the impression that Exadata has been mainly developed for hosting databases with large amount of data typically seen in a datawarehouse environment and were not aware if oracle's E-Business suite of applications can be hosted on Exadata. The answer is yes; currently Oracle E-business suite release 11i with 11gR2 database is certified with Oracle Exadata V2 machine. Oracle is currently working on the certification of the E-Business suite release 12 on exadata and the same should be available in the near future.

Guest post by

Supply chain management is a core function of any organization which sells/buys/utilizes products and services. It empowers an organization to work on margin improvisation and improve on working capital.

Whether to use 'Oracle Project Resource Management'

Gust post by
Rajan Gupta, Senior Consultant, Infosys

 

Oracle Project Resource Management (PJRM) is a self-service application in Oracle Enterprise applications and provides a solution to effectively manage resource allocation on projects in project centric organizations.  PJRM has been a buzz word in PPM when Oracle started rolling out PPM solutions to its customers. The effective goal of implementing PJRM application is to find the right people for the right projects at the right time which is ultimately achieved by streamlining the demand and supply of resources in an organization. Project Resource Management considers only labor resources and assignment of those resources at the Project level only (not at task level) and is a not time based application.

CRM to CXM to C3E - Innovation or Evolution?

While CXM (Customer Experience Management) was floated as a concept almost a couple of years ago, it seems quite recent in wake of the fact that CRM (Customer Relationship Management) has been the mainstay of enterprises worldwide for almost 2 decades now. Despite the fact that most of the organizations are yet to latch on to this, and the fact that the ones who have latched on are yet to mature the concept when implemented on ground, the industry is looking for something newer already. The new acronym on the block is C3E (Cross-Channel Customer Experience), and at least for now it seems to satisfy everyone's appetite for innovation.

Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications : Be Mobile, Be Quick, Be Accurate and Reduce Waste

Guest post by
Shantanu Bedekar, Senior Consultant, Infosys

 

Anyone who has visited a manufacturing plant or a warehouse knows that there is always a time-lag between physical movement of material and recording the same in the system. The unavoidable reason of this is: material is stored in racks, bins, containers spread across the warehouse or shop-floor but computer terminals on which Oracle forms are opened to enter data are far and few.

Oracle Exadata and DataWarehousing Impact - Part I

The Oracle Exadata journey if i were to start from Version 1 to version 2, and now we have X2-8 version is quite interesting in terms of how it scales from an effecient platform for not only OLTP but a perfect recipe for what one can ask from a Data Warehousing platform. This blog is more about a sneak preview of some of the key features that one can expect out-of-the-box, and what really does an Exadata machine contains. Idea certainly is not to burden you with numbers, terms which one may not be able to grasp but to understand how Oracle is strategically aligning itself with the changing demands of the Information Age. Considering the topic and to do justice i am planning to split this into a series of blogs to focus on each of the key aspects.
