Uncovering Decaying Supply Chain Links with IOT Asset Monitoring by Supreet Oberoi

image

A Tale of Two Wines
I’ve spent most my life in the Bay area. The weather is mild, and the traffic not. Over time, I’ve become fond of a particular French wine sold in a chain grocery store. The wine had good character and depth, but its price initially made me think I’d be drinking vinegar! So, when I had to relocate to (hot! hot!) Arizona for two years, I found the same chain grocery store to buy my wine. Everything inside the store was arranged in exactly the same way as in California.  More surprising, they had all the same products, including perishables, as in my California store. And there it was — my favorite cheap wine! I thanked the supply chain gods for making this happen.

I took my wine to the corporate housing, feeling very much like I was home. I opened the bottle and let the wine breathe. First sip… it tasted not just like vinegar, but bad vinegar! Second sip… still the same. I went back and got another bottle… same taste. Obviously, somewhere during the transit of the cargo, this delicate, cheap wine was exposed to the hostile Arizona heat for too long. That killed it. I was so disappointed.
So what does this really have to do with the supply chain process you ask?

Decayed Links in the Supply Chain Process

When we started doing IoT development at Oracle, one of the most common customer concerns was reducing theft and waste in the transport of perishable goods (for example, groceries, poultry) and semi-perishable goods (such as wine). Though we offer the best practices to tune your supply chain logistics to reduce your hazards when moving your perishable goods, we realized many risks still weren’t being  addressed.

Risk 1: Asset Is Missing

What do we mean by assets? An asset may be a keg waiting to be loaded in a yard, or it could be an excavator, a loader, lathe, drill, blood infusion pump, or a patient bed. Assets could be goods moving through the supply chain system, or a tool enabling the movement of those goods. Some of us sheltered within our software world don’t ever consider the loss of physical assets – it takes us by surprise. How can an asset get lost? Read the complete article here.

Solve digital transformation challenges using Oracle Cloud

image

Digital transformation is an omnipresent topic today, providing a lot of challenges as well as chances. Due to that, customers are asking about how to deal with those challenges and how to leverage from the provided chances. Frequently asked questions in this area are:

  • How can we modernize existing applications?
  • What are the key elements for a future-proven strategy IT system architecture?
  • How can the flexibility as well as the agility of the IT system landscape be ensured?

But from our experience there’s no common answer for these questions, since every customer has individual requirements and businesses, but it is necessary to find pragmatic solutions, which leverage from existing best Practices – it is not necessary to completely re-invent the wheel.

With our new poster „Four Pillars of Digitalization based on Oracle Cloud“ (Download it here) , we try to deliver a set of harmonized reference models which we evolved based on our practical experience, while conceiving modern, future-oriented solutions in the area of modern application designs, integrative architectures, modern infrastructure solutions and analytical architectures. The guiding principle, which is the basis for our architectural thoughts is: Design for Change. If you want to learn more, you can refer to our corresponding Ebook (find the Ebook here, only available in German at the moment).

Usually the technological base for modern application architectures today is based on Cloud services, where the offerings of different vendors are constantly growing. Here it is important to know which Cloud services are the right ones to implement a specific use case. Our poster „Four Pillars of Digitalization based on Oracle Cloud“ shows the respective Cloud services of our strategic partner Oracle, which can be used to address specific challenges in the area of digitalization. Get the poster here.
