Cloud = Service-based computing model providing self-service, elasticity, shared resources, and pay-as-you-go

New cloud computing technologies are enabling breakthrough innovations in supply chain management (SCM) applications delivered via software as a service (SaaS) models.

To help companies support their complete quote-to-cash process in the Cloud, Oracle has expanded the Oracle Supply Chain Management Cloud with the addition of two new products, Oracle Order Management Cloud and Oracle Global Order Promising Cloud.

Order Management Cloud

 

According to Oracle Press release note , these two products provide modern order promising, management, visibility and fulfillment capabilities, and link the existing quote and sales process in Oracle Configure, Price, and Quote Cloud (Oracle CPQ Cloud) and the pick, pack and ship processes in Oracle Inventory Cloud to billing in Oracle ERP Cloud

Oracle SCM Cloud enables you to innovate quickly, execute rapidly, and scale your value chain. Companies can rapidly deploy Oracle’s supply chain management functionality with minimal risk, low cost, and maximum flexibility.

With Oracle SCM Cloud, companies do not have to maintain or upgrade to the latest version–they can receive the latest, best-in-class functionality through a flexible subscription pricing model.

Here are two product added in SCM :

Oracle Order Management Cloud

Oracle Order Management Cloud is an order capture and fulfillment Cloud solution that is tightly integrated with Oracle Global Order Promising Cloud.

It is designed to improve order handling across the order-to-cash process. Pre-integration, centrally-managed orchestration policies, global availability, and fulfillment monitoring can enable increased customer satisfaction and order profitability.

Key business benefits include:

  • Centralized Order Monitoring: Centralized view of orders allows users to search for orders, view statuses, see a summary of exceptions of customer, product, or supplier, and drill into the data to view additional details.
  • Manage Order Exceptions: Proactively identify orders that may not meet promise dates and take corrective actions and avoid customer dissatisfaction. Prioritize back orders to maximize key fulfillment metrics.
  • Execute Against Predictable Order Orchestration policies: Business users can define, implement and maintain their own fulfillment orchestration policies without the need to resort to technical programming tools decreasing systems cost and minimizing IT complexity.
  • Change Management: Centralized change order logic supports consistent handling of order changes and revisions across all orders reducing order errors and processing costs

Oracle Global Order Promising Cloud

Oracle Global Order Promising Cloud provides fast, accurate, automated order promising capability on the Cloud to source and schedule each order line to help minimize fulfillment costs and maximize customer service.

Key business benefits include:

  • Take Control of Fulfillment Sources, Timing and Delivery: Matches demand with available inventory, inbound shipments, purchase orders and requisitions, considers all potential supply sources and leverages future supply.
  • Respond to Changing Business Conditions: Can handle most orders in “lights out” fashion, enforcing corporate fulfillment policies while saving money on administration, inventory and logistics costs.
  • Select the Lowest Cost Delivery Method that Meets the Customer Need: Selects the best delivery source and method with the lowest total fulfillment costs to meet the customer’s deliver date while improving margins and maintaining customer satisfaction.
  • Support Multiple Fulfillment Options: Expands fulfillment options to include inbound supply, manufacturing capacity and supplier availability to leverage all available sources and stay competitive.
  • Limit Availability of High Demand Items: Demand classes identify a specific quantity, percentage or ratio of supply with a particular customer or channel and restrict orders for limited items to those groups you specify.

Enabling Order To Cash

Oracle’s quote-to-cash solution is an end-to-end business process that integrates Oracle Order Management Cloud and Oracle Global Promising Cloud with Oracle CPQ Cloud and Oracle ERP Cloud, connecting the sales, fulfillment and finance organizations.

Let’s take a look at an example of the complete flow, with customer quotes being created in Configure, Price, and Quote Cloud (also known as CPQ Cloud) and fulfilled through order management, getting the order shipped, and finally billing system through Financial cloud.

You can submit a quote request from CPQ Cloud, the quote is converted to an order within Order Management Cloud.

The order created is carried forward through user defined orchestration steps to carry out various fulfillment steps like scheduling, reservation, shipping, and billing.

The order may contain standard items, multilevel pick to order models and kits.

During fulfillment, the fulfillment line status updates are sent to the order originating system (CPQ).

This diagram shows Order Management Cloud with Global Order Promising Cloud (also known as GOP Cloud).

GOP Cloud provides you the ability to check the availability of supply and schedule orders in a way that minimizes delays while reducing fulfillment costs.

After the order is shipped to the customer, invoice or billing details can be sent to Financials Cloud for billing and collecting.
