Dong-A ST Builds Global Pharmacovigilance System with Oracle Argus SafetyIntegrated safety management system powers data-driven decisions and scales to support international expansionRedwood Shores, Calif. – September 23, 2014News Summary

Dong-A ST, a South Korean pharmaceutical company planning an international market expansion, needed to digitize and streamline safety information management from pharmacovigilance processes in order to optimize global regulatory compliance and drive better decision making. The company deployed Oracle Argus Safety as its pharmacovigilance platform, enabling it to rapidly and efficiently create regulatory reports and easily grow to support its expansion strategy.

News Facts To support its growth plan, Dong-A ST used Oracle Argus Safety to create a database containing comprehensive safety data from its pharmacovigilance process. Pharmacovigilance is the scientific discipline that focuses on drug safety. With Oracle Argus Safety, Dong-A ST then digitized safety data collected from its pharmacovigilance processes, eliminating time-consuming manual data consolidation. Streamlining the process helped Dong-A ST’s executives make faster, data-driven safety management decisions across its product portfolio. The Oracle solution’s integrated database management, standardized workflows, and automated reporting also helped the company rapidly and efficiently create reports to support domestic and international regulatory compliance, including safety information management requirements. This is the first implementation of Oracle Argus Safety in South Korea, giving Dong-A ST a competitive advantage via an integrated system for managing safety information that can scale to support international expansion efforts. Dong-A ST selected Oracle Argus Safety in November 2013. Dong-A selected TAKE Solutions as its implementation partner based on that company’s deep experience with Oracle Argus Safety. A Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), TAKE worked effectively with Dong-A in all aspects of installation, data migration, and validation. Supporting Quote “Dong-A ST is the first South Korean pharmaceutical company to deploy Oracle’s industry-leading pharmacovigilance solution, Oracle Argus Safety. The company created an integrated system for managing safety information, helping it gain a competitive advantage in its market segment,” said Steve Rosenberg, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Health Sciences.Supporting Resources Oracle in Health Sciences Oracle Argus Safety Standard Edition Oracle Argus Cloud Service Expanded to Help Life Sciences Organizations Streamline Pharmacovigilance New Oracle Health Sciences InForm and Oracle Argus Safety Integration Accelerates Safety Reporting, Reduces Costs Follow Oracle Health Sciences on Twitter Join the Oracle Health Sciences Community on Facebook Oracle Health Sciences on YouTubeAbout Oracle

As a result POSCO has been able to better serve its customers through advanced order processing while laying the IT infrastructure for significant sustainable growth.

News Facts Oracle announced that POSCO, one of the world's largest steel manufacturing companies, based in South Korea, has implemented Oracle Product Hub as a mission-critical, highly scalable solution to maximize production efficiency and enhance the customer-order process. POSCO aims to provide differentiated value to its customers by adopting POSPIA 3.0, a proprietary process-innovation project that optimizes global IT systems throughout the organization, to increase profit margins and improve operational efficiencies, while dramatically increasing customer satisfaction. With Oracle Product Hub, POSCO can centralize and standardize product information, increase the accuracy of information by filtering data and providing alerts through dashboards, and further simplify order processing by automatically and accurately matching millions of customer requirements to the product specifications.

POSCO also integrated Oracle Business Process Management (BPM) Suite with Oracle Product Hub to build a better data management system, one that checks for updates to data. Oracle BPM helps ensure that employees update any missing information with prompt alerts. Oracle Product Hub’s central repository of product information is linked with Oracle E-Business Suite for more efficient control and cost management of their steel production. In addition, POSCO deployed Oracle Product Hub with Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud to simplify its IT infrastructure and boost operational efficiency, flexibility and speed.Supporting Quote "Oracle Product Hub is optimized for manufacturing and supply process management as it is highly scalable and provides centralized product information," said Rick Jewell, senior vice president, Applications Development, Oracle Applications. “Oracle Product Hub allows POSCO to provide differentiating values for its customers with improved customer service."Supporting Resources Oracle Product Hub Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Oracle Exadata Database Machine Oracle E-Business Suite Oracle Business Process Management SuiteAbout Oracle
