Oracle's Business Analytics Portfolio is Enhanced with New BI Applications Certified on Oracle Exalytics

Oracle extended its Business Analytics portfolio, with the announcement of two new Oracle Business Intelligence Applications, Oracle Manufacturing Analytics and Oracle Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Analytics. According to Oracle, these are the first and only analytic applications for manufacturing and asset management analysis and will enable customers and partners serving manufacturing, energy production, utilities and other asset-intensive industries to gain better insights and make decisions faster. Oracle says both solutions provide support for large numbers of concurrent users and are certified to run on Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine. Native support for tablet and mobile devices, such as the Apple iPad and iPhone is also provided.

"For manufacturing and asset-intensive industries, maintaining the health of critical assets and optimizing production and inventory is the difference between bottom line business growth and failure," said Gaurav Rewari, vice president of EPM and BI product development, Oracle. "By extending Oracle BI Applications with Oracle Manufacturing Analytics and Oracle Enterprise Asset Management Analytics, we are enabling customers to get intelligence into the hands of key-decision makers at the speed of business, wherever the job may take them."

Oracle Manufacturing Analytics has been introduced to help operations managers, manufacturing analysts, manufacturing and supply chain executives and production cost accountants gain insights into manufacturing processes, inventory and product quality, while Oracle Enterprise Asset Management Analytics is intended to help plant and facilities maintenance managers, maintenance engineers, department managers and supply chain executives manage assets more effectively and align operational and financial efficiencies.

The new offerings are built on Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite, and complement other Oracle Business Intelligence Applications, including Oracle Financial Analytics, Oracle Human Resources Analytics, Oracle Supply Chain and Order Management Analytics and Oracle Procurement and Spend Analytics. The new applications also conform to Oracle's BI Applications enterprise data model, enabling cross-functional analysis across back-office and front-office business functions, to provide better cross enterprise intelligence. BI Applications can work with a variety of ERP and CRM data sources, including the Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel CRM, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, JD Edwards World, SAP, and other third-party sources, says Oracle.
