Achieves Four Star CMII Rating; Partners Continue to Utilize Agile PLM to Release New Oracle Accelerate Solutions for Midsize Manufacturers
Oracle today announced a new pre-built, open standard-based integration for new product introduction (NPI) from Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) to the Oracle® E-Business Suite.
Oracle also unveiled Oracle’s Agile PLM Business Intelligence 3.0 to provide better decision-making during NPI. Agile PLM has achieved a four star CMII Rating by the Institute of Configuration Management (ICM), which required independent certification and validation by CMII graduates. This recognition confirms Agile PLM’s superior capabilities in managing engineering and manufacturing configurations.
“Similar to large enterprises, midsize manufacturers face product design and delivery challenges but they are also hindered by limited resources and tight budgets,” said Randy Pettit, President, Domain Systems. “With Oracle Accelerate, we are able to quickly implement enterprise-level PLM capabilities that are industry-specific, quick-to-deploy and easy-to-maintain. This enables customers to focus on driving innovation, increasing profitability and getting products to market faster.”
Expanding the global reach of Agile PLM to midsize manufacturers, Domain Systems, J-Squared Technologies, Inc. and Sierra Atlantic deliver industry-specific, pre-configured Oracle Accelerate solutions.
Oracle’s strategy is to deliver complete, integrated and end-to-end product suites on an open, standards-based middleware and database architecture. Oracle’s approach helps customers to simplify computing environments, lower cost and risk, and provides greater choice and flexibility.
“After a meticulous software certification process that relied on direct input from CMII certified practitioners and Agile PLM customers including Harris, Brocade and Echostar, we have validated Oracle’s Agile PLM with a four star rating for CMII processes,” said Vincent Guess, President of the Institute of Configuration Management. “This is an important achievement that demonstrates the value that Agile PLM brings to customers, providing comprehensive configuration and change management capabilities across the product lifecycle.”
Industry-Specific PLM for Midsize Manufacturers
Midsize manufacturers today require industry-specific PLM solutions that offer a lower total cost of ownership and provide best practices to enable innovation.
Working with Certified Partners in the Oracle PartnerNetwork, Oracle Accelerate provides midsize organizations with pre-packaged, best practices application bundles that pair Oracle’s enterprise software with partners’ knowledge of specific industries allowing for rapid, fixed cost implementations.
Leveraging Agile PLM, Domain Systems, J-Squared Technologies, Inc. and Sierra Atlantic have built industry-specific Oracle Accelerate solutions for midsize manufacturers around the world.
Latest Integration Enables Business Agility
Oracle’s Agile PLM Integration Pack for the Oracle E-Business Suite, Design to Release leverages Oracle Application Integration Architecture (AIA) to provide a pre-built, open standards-based, service oriented architecture (SOA) that is completely extendable to customers’ current enterprise architecture.
This pre-built integration for the design to release process from Agile Product Collaboration to Oracle Manufacturing and Oracle’s enterprise resource planning applications enables customers to improve overall design for manufacturability, product quality and cost while minimizing supply chain disruptions.
Leveraging AIA, this integration is the first release of an ongoing roadmap to create a highly configurable, extensible and sustainable platform that will support next generation enterprise PLM process integrations to Oracle Applications – as well as SAP’s offerings and other third-party solutions.
