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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
