Digital Product Master
Businesses today grapple with the need for rapid product development and release cycles. For simple and complex products alike, the management of the peripheral systems i.e product documentation, authoring and content (digital assets) is a complex challenge in itself.
Speed , diversity and volume of channels lead to multiple data silos . Business growth phenomena such as M&A, ops optimization etc only add to the complexity.Companies often operate in multi-product development, and ERP systems environments that leads to inconsistencies and delay product releases.These impede business ability to keep pace with the market, leading to the below:
Delays in production ramp-up, regulatory approvals and market launch
Planning and forecasting issues leading to missed market opportunities
Inferior omnichannel capabilities
Impact on customer satisfaction, revenue and profitability reporting
Therefore, managing the data silos that impede a business’s ability to launch diversified products into more channels faster is the number one meet market pressures for launching more diversified products into more channels faster.
Oracle Product Hub (PH) cloud, helps customers build and provide a 360-degree view of a product , optimizing aggregation , sharing and management of product data, while maintaining data integrity. Sandeza helps customers evolve their product master data management practices, with efficient deployment and use of a digital product master with Oracle PH cloud.
optimize the way your organization aggregates, manages, and shares product data.
Sandeza and Oracle with PH Cloud help our customers overcome challenges in common commercialization and system transformation scenarios.
The progressive use of digital authoring tools , comprehensive product information including attribution, rich content and digital assets lead to data silos. While companies spend a time and effort to collect all necessary information for product launch, product data enrichment happens in an ungoverned way leading to data inaccuracies and late product releases.
Oracle PH Cloud can aggregate disparate product data and enable a digital 360-degree view of a product that can easily be shared downstream helping accelerate time-to-market and time-to-volume while maintaining integrity of the data
The ability to connect fundamental applications like PLM and ERP seamlessly is critical for organizations to be able to commercialize products quickly and efficiently. Current PLM to ERP integration methods are cumbersome with limited visibility and control of the design to manufacturing BOM transformation impeding businesses to effectively enrich engineering BOMs for commercialization while maintaining integrity of the data. Oracle PH Cloud can enable a flexible, but controlled integration between engineering and manufacturing helping accelerate time-to-market with lower risk and cost.
E-commerce business and varying product data requirements among retailers and channels pose new data management and distribution challenges for manufacturers. Organizations struggle to consistently and efficiently collect, categorize, aggregate and transmit the increasing amount of product information as many still rely on manual processes and siloed systems. This limits their ability to participate in ecommerce and increases their risks of providing incomplete, inconsistent or erroneous product information.
Oracle PH Cloud can help manufacturers collect change-controlled data and enhance it with non-change controlled data in an efficient and flexible way - improving operations effectiveness and the commerce experience.
Businesses in regulated industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical devices need to comply with comprehensive regulations. This is a cumbersome and overwhelming task impeding speed-to-market abilities while maintaining compliance.
Oracle PH Cloud offers a new mechanism to consistently and efficiently collect, categorize and transmit product information to regulatory bodies in different jurisdictions.
During mergers and acquisitions (M&A), the launch of a new site or a decision to upgrade/replace an existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) system organizations need to migrate large volumes of data from the existing system to the new one. It is a complex and risky process. Oracle PH Cloud can facilitate the migration by serving as a central data staging platform and system of governance mitigating the risk of data loss, inaccurate data transformation, interruption of business services or the new system implementation.
In an M&A, or co-development activity, companies need to converge the design work from multiple PLM, CAD and other product authoring systems in a central location to prepare the common product with all its respective commercial attribution and collateral for market launch. Oracle PH Cloud can safely aggregate product data from multiple functions and across organizations facilitating co-development of products across business units, divisions and partners, and as a result increasing market opportunities.
To deliver on today’s ecommerce and mass customization demands businesses need a new mechanism to manage part attribution and configuration. The large amount of options and attributes associated with each product, along with frequently changing business requirements, make it difficult for companies to leverage existing PLM or ERP systems to manage that data. Custom solutions have failed due to the high technical complexity and rigidity of the integrations. Oracle PH Cloud provides flexible and unlimited product attribution capabilities, which in combination with PLM and ERP satisfy the configuration needs for CPQ interactions.
Lack of insight into design decisions, that lead to downstream manufacturing issues, has been a challenge for long. With the rise of smart-connected manufacturing and IoT data from manufacturing environments, data on equipment operating performance and product-quality attribution is available.. Oracle PH Cloud provides the ability to capture critical product quality attributes, govern triggers for above/below range excursion events and enrich the product record with historical adverse event data that can help drive continuous design improvements.
Sandeza team is experienced with helping customers deploy and configure Oracle PH cloud to efficiently upgrade their product management.
