On Tuesday, Oracle detailed its Applications Unlimited program, a plan that seeks to build customer-driven enhancements and maintain lifetime support for Oracle's Agile product life-cycle management (PLM).
The Oracle Application Integration Architecture (AIA) will be instrumental in delivering pre-built, open standards-based integration between Oracle's Agile PLM and other Oracle Applications.
This effort will incorporate best practices that can be leveraged and extended by partners and customers, and integrated with legacy systems or other applications, such as SAP .
With Oracle's Agile PLM, organizations can leverage all business and technical information related to products, creating a seamless flow of product information throughout the enterprise and across the product network. Companies will be able to extend the value of PLM beyond engineering to encompass design, development, manufacturing, and product delivery.
Components of Oracle's Enterprise PLM program:
Best-in-Class Applications : Oracle will deliver best-in-class Enterprise PLM applications that can be deployed quickly across all product development and broader enterprise organizations and stakeholders involved in the product life cycle;
Industry Focus : Oracle will add industry-specific, next-generation functionality to its Agile PLM solutions, building upon Agile's existing expertise in consumer goods, high-tech, industrial manufacturing, and life sciences;
Commitment to Openness : Oracle plans to remain committed to maintaining and extending the openness of Agile's leading best-in-class solution, which both CAD- and ERP-agnostic;
Strategic Integration : Based on a service-oriented architecture, Oracle's Agile PLM will be extended through open, standard-based AIA to different enterprise components such as manufacturing and shop-floor capabilities, ERP applications, supply chain planning functionality, CRM, financial applications, enterprise performance management, and business analytics.
Says Oracle VP of PLM Product Strategy, Hardeep Gulati, "Our commitment to open, standards-based integrations will allow companies that rely on other enterprise applications including SAP to take advantage of our best-in-class PLM capabilities."
