Oracle in-memory app for J.D. Edwards aims to help juggle supply and demand

The software is run in conjunction with Oracle's 'engineered systems' like Exadata

Oracle is rolling out a new in-memory application for its J.D. Edwards ERP (enterprise resource planning) software that's aimed at giving customers real-time insights into their supply chain in order to avoid calamities and optimize day-to-day business.

Manufacturers work with a wide array of suppliers, so the J.D. Edwards EnterpriseOne In-Memory Planning Advisor is designed to help them quickly determine the answers to questions such as whether they have enough material to complete orders if a supplier misses a delivery date, according to an Oracle data sheet.

The application visualizes large amounts of supply-chain data from the J.D. Edwards system and gives users the ability to analyze it and then make desired modifications, such as to a set of purchase orders.

Pricing information wasn't immediately available.

Oracle began releasing in-memory applications for its J.D. Edwards, E-Business Suite, Siebel and PeopleSoft software suites last year. In memory apps put large amounts of data in RAM for faster processing, as opposed to reading it off of disk.

They serve a dual purpose for Oracle. For one thing, they give sales representatives something new to sell into the vendor's vast ERP installed base. The in-memory applications are also meant to be run on Oracle's "engineered systems" such as Exadata, Exalogic and Exalytics, upon which the company is pinning the future of its hardware business.
