Oracle launches in-memory logistics command centre

Oracle has launched an in-memory logistics command centre designed to optimise the performance of logistics operations.

The Oracle In-Memory Logistics Command Centre enables users to perform rapid simulations and what-if analysis of their logistics networks using real-world operational data, rules and constraints.

It makes use of the extreme performance capabilities of Oracle Engineered Systems including Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, which can manage the large and complex data sets central to in-memory applications.

“To cope effectively with today’s supply chain risk factors, customer demands, and changing business models, organisation need the ability to quickly and accurately simulate the performance of their logistics network,” said Derek Gittoes, vice president, value chain execution product strategy at Oracle.

“With Oracle In-Memory Logistics Command Centre, customers can take advantage of unparalleled performance to run rapid simulations and ‘what if’ scenarios with accurate, real-time data. This can not only transform the logistic scenario management process, but more importantly can help customers increase supply chain performance, decrease costs and improve service levels.”
