You are most likely reading this because you are either an Oracle Retail customer or are about to embark on an Oracle Retail implementation. As with all major application implementations, you must make a significant investment, often of several months or more, to develop a reliable and efficient batch schedule.
With CA Automic Workload Automation, you can cut the batch schedule development and implementation time to just a few weeks, and also reduce ongoing maintenance. The result is reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
This white paper describes how CA can help significantly shorten your Oracle Retail batch schedule development time. In addition, the paper describes how this Oracle Validated solution optimizes performance of Oracle Retail so your core retail processes will run faster and be more agile.
It is not uncommon for SAP system copies, including any post-editing, to take several days to complete. Meanwhile, testing, development and training activities come to a standstill, and the large number of manual tasks in the entire process ties up highly skilled SAP BASIS staff.
Enterprises are looking to automation as a way to accelerate SAP system copies and free up staff. However, this is only one part of the problem: What further complicates the system copy process is the need to safeguard sensitive data and manage huge data volumes while also ensuring that the data used in non-production systems adequately reflects the data in production systems so the quality of development, testing and training activities is not compromised.
This white paper explains how a considerable portion of the SAP system copy process can be automated using the CA Automic Automated System Copy for SAP solution and SNP T-Bone, helping enterprises become more agile.
As more pressure is placed on the finance team to provide meaningful insights more frequently, it is becoming increasingly necessary to speed up business processes, as well as have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. The traditional expense reporting process is a drain from both perspectives.
Using software to manage employee expenses can provide a more efficient means of managing the process, however most solutions are simply a digital version of the traditional paper process. This can limit the amount of time savings you can gain.
This paper will demonstrate the time savings you can accomplish by implementing a real time expense reporting solution versus one that relies on employee generated expense reports.
This white paper outlines a framework that emphasizes digitization and business transformation and the new opportunities pull processes bring.
The mechanism of “Pull” processes—those triggered by an actual event instead of a forecast—is nothing new. It is at the heart of many successful manufacturing strategies. Recent technological advances in digitization, including the harnessing of Big Data analytics, the use of the cloud, Business Process Management (BPM), social media, IIoT, and mobility, have extended the power of Pull beyond Lean manufacturing. In the wake of the current technological innovation wave, it is not uncommon for manufacturers to not know what next step to take.
In light of these new developments, this white paper will focus on the mechanism of business transformation enabled by these technologies, which can be attributed to two major forces: the power of Pull and digitization. Nine practical applications are detailed, showing how innovative manufacturers can better

Deep learning is a type of machine learning that trains a computer to perform humanlike tasks, such as recognizing speech, identifying images or making predictions. Instead of organizing data to run through predefined equations, deep learning sets up basic parameters about the data and trains the computer to learn on its own by recognizing patterns using many layers of processing. Deep learning is used strategically in many industries.

Unilever is a global player in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector, with nearly a third of the world’s population using its products every day. The company has more than 169,000 employees working around the world, and its leaders estimate that within three years, as many as 60 percent of those employees will be Millennials. Critical to Unilever’s ongoing success will be its ability to attract these recent college graduates.
For its signature Future Leaders Programme, the company wanted its recruitment efforts to get ahead of the curve. The existing process was rooted in paper-based applications, phone interviews with recruiters, and manual assessment tests. It took four to six months to sift through 250,000 applications and ultimately hire 800 individuals. The company sought to radically transform this process using online gamification, digitally recorded interviews, and science-based assessment tests and data analysis.

Accounts Payable is a fundamental activity for nearly all businesses. Pick any enterprise and you can bet there is an AP function at the heart of financial operations. The obligation to pay off short-term debt is one that every company must satisfy. But more than that, the process to do it must be efficient and productive. If you get behind on your obligations you risk missing important financial discounts, defaulting with creditors, and damaging your reputation with suppliers and stakeholders.
CFOs face the challenges associated with Accounts Payable…and it’s easy to lose sleep. As other areas of business and commerce have become more and more paperless, the accounts payable process in most organizations remains mired in paper copies and manual workflow. The result is an often costly and people intensive process that leaves companies vulnerable to competitors and financial executives with a growing unease over the inherent inefficiencies.

Customer Experience (CX) has become a critical differentiator for companies. Consulting company Forrester has declared that we are in the “Age of the Customer,” and Gartner argues, “A superior
customer experience is one of the few remaining means of sustainable competitive differentiation as the effects of globalization take their toll.”
Despite its widely-recognized importance, CX continues to be a loosely-defined concept, with each organization seeming to have its own definition. Approaches to the discipline and the arrangement of CX teams and related roles vary widely from business to business, leading to some confusion within organizations trying to select a CX approach.
Whether you are just starting your company’s CX journey or you are well on your way, this white

This whitepaper explores the new SPARC S7 server features and then compares this
offering to a similar x86 offering.
The key characteristics of the SPARC S7 to be highlighted are:
? Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures
? SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5
? Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration
The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different
perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost.
Performance matters as business markets are
driving IT to provide an environment that:
? Continuously provides real-time results.
? Processes more complex workload stacks.
? Optimizes usage of per-core software licenses.
Risk matters today and into the foreseeable future,
as challenges to secure systems and data are
becoming more frequent and invasive from within
and from outside. Oracle SPARC systems approach

For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and
future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing. (IDC defines IoT as a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity.) These scenarios more tightly integrate “things” with other information, processes, and even value chains. Further, we demonstrate how companies in these industries leverage technology to create business value today and disruptive opportunities tomorrow.
