现代最佳实践,成长,及数字化转型

为何最佳实践可能还不够好

Steve Cox, VP, Oracle Applications Business Unit

每个软件提供商都宣称他们有能力提供最佳实践。然而,不称作现代最佳实践,也不运用到诸如云、移动、社交等等驱动技术的最佳实践就不是真正的最佳实践。Oracle Cloud Go-To-Market副总裁 Steve Cox说。他最近撰写了电子书《现代最佳实践讲解》来阐明为什么只有现代最佳实践才够好的论点。

问:在新发布的这本电子书里,您提到重点在于标准化。为何标准化如此重要?

Steve: 标准化带动可以论证成果。标准化是亨利·福特的流水线模式Deming全面质量管理的基础。十多年以前,Oracle达到超十亿美元利润的关键因素就在于对通用的业务流程进行标准化。

在现今数字化转型的时代里标准化也是如此适用。每个组织想要蓬勃发展就必须着眼每个流程和交易,看看是否可以通过数字化的方式来进行。这些组织的目标是相同的,因为他们都面临着由技术带来不断改变的消费者行为,因此需要不断地降低成本并提高客户体验的一致性

: 在现代最佳实践中,标准化是如何帮助组织进行数字化转型?

Digital TransformationSteve: 以数字化转型为目的,您必须要问,我们需将什么标准化以达到目的?现代最佳实践利用了每个数字化转型过程中都必不可少的驱动技术——社交分析大数据移动技术物联网。现代最佳实践可以为提供数字化转型道路提供路线规划指导。例如,它可以当作社会关系管理策略的执行图解指南,能够在客户所偏好的社交网络中全面听取客户声音及改善客户互动,并将这些执行方式贯穿整个组织,不仅局限于营销活动。

: 为什么要在Oracle.com的网站上发布现代最佳实践?

Steve: Oracle 致力于开放标准。这不仅包含为客户提供端到端业务流程的全面解决方案,还包含与客户进行知识分享的承诺。我们现代最佳实践的网页以及实用指南,便是如何采用现代业务经营方式的知识分享。

: 哪些将成为驱动现代最佳实践的下一代新兴技术?

Steve: 有很多。诸如室内定位系统设备的广泛采用将引发临近营销(proximity marketing)的新手段。转移到内存分析将使各种规模的组织能够实现他们一直想做但由于系统性能问题而无法达成的数据分析。成本更低且更强大的硬件将使企业能通过处理更多的交易来增加高峰时段利润。按照人经营业务的方式来调整的IT系统将扩展对新设备的支持,所以,举例而言,像我一样的人可在越野长跑期间在我的手表上进行报销的批核。再想象一下3D打印技术的演进对食品生产商制造商生产和供应链的影响。

: 现代最佳实践的下一步是什么?

Steve: Oracle有丰富的知识资源,而我们才刚刚开始分享我们现代最佳实践的格式。接下来,我们将公布在电子商务、销售绩效、运输、产品创新,以及项目等方面的更多内容。我们正在不断增加更多解决方案的演示,相关的白皮书和总监级别洞察材料,来帮助我们的客户了解现代最佳实践是如何能够指导他们进行业务的转型

Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Software Update OS 8.4

The new OS 8.4 software update for the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance was released last week. 

My personal favorite change in this update is that the RESTful API service is now enabled by default.

Rest Service

Before this update users used to have to log in the ZFS Storage Appliance and enable the REST service before issuing REST commands.   If they forgot to do this REST commands would return the following error. :-(

Sales Crediting and Why it Matters – Written by Sarah Wright

One of the most impactful ways of automating an incentive compensation process is something people often forget, or assume cannot be automated. Some customers refer to this as pre-processing or territory management or payment rules or book of business or simply my biggest HEADACHE. Most customers manage the process manually or with highly custom, hard-coded jobs maintained by an IT team. At Oracle, we call this process sales crediting and we have found a way (more...)

Zero Based Budgeting (ZBB) Considerations within Hyperion Planning

Zero based budgeting (ZBB) applications are becoming increasingly popular as a way to develop a budget, especially for lower growth organizations that are interested in cutting costs. The most significant difference between ZBB applications and traditional budget applications are the level of details captured. Where traditional budgeting applications plan an expense item directly or using a price X quantity formula, ZBB applications will plan every line item related to that expense. For example, when budgeting (more...)

Test-driven development using the Oracle SOA Suite by The Cattle Crew

clip_image001As in all software projects, quality assurance with thorough testing in integration projects is a key factor to success. Test-driven development focuses exactly on this aspect: unit and integration testing of integration elements must be done as soon as possible. The tests used in these phases must also be reproducible so that they can be run automatically in case of changes in the integration logic, thus guaranteeing that no unintended changes are made.
