Lumentum Shines a Light on the Benefits of Oracle Global Trade Management Cloud

Press Release Lumentum Shines a Light on the Benefits of Oracle Global Trade Management Cloud

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 20, 2016

Oracle today announced that Lumentum Holdings Inc. has become the first company to go live with Oracle Global Trade Management Cloud Service (GTM) for product classification and export compliance screening.  Their five-month implementation, which includes an out-of-the-box integration with Oracle E-Business Suite Managed Cloud Service.  Lumentum manufactures and exports optical networking devices, commercial lasers and 3D sensing tools that are used in almost every network in the world. Telecommunication companies, enterprises and data centers around the globe depend on Lumentum’s innovative components and modules.

Oracle GTM Cloud Service allows Lumentum to proactively manage the entire export compliance process, from classifying their items for export, screening their sales orders and customer deliveries for restricted and denied parties, export compliance and license requirements, and export documentation.

“Trade compliance is the process of ensuring country-specific laws and regulations are followed when shipping goods across international borders,” said Sree Vaidyanathan, VP Information Technology, Lumentum. “Businesses that fail to comply with these export policies can face increased order fulfilment time, severe penalties and trade restrictions. Oracle’s GTM solution supports all of our compliance needs and provides effective screening capabilities so we can scale and expand the business globally”.

Oracle partner, Accelalpha, expertise in Oracle E-Business Suite provided Lumentum with a holistic approach to develop end-to-end business processes and re-usable solution components as part of a rapid deployment strategy. A key objective of the project was to minimize infrastructure and system administration costs which had to be delivered against a period of dramatic change while Lumentum was being spun out from its parent company JDS Uniphase Corporation.

“To support rapid and cost-effective business growth and market expansion, shippers like Lumentum are looking for competitive ways to streamline and enhance complex trade management processes,” said Derek Gittoes, vice president, supply chain management product strategy, Oracle. “We provide the industry’s most comprehensive transportation and global trade management cloud platform. As a result we are in a better place than ever to help our customer’s further optimize processes, reduce costs and mitigate risks.”

Both companies will share best practices and experiences at Oracle's Modern Supply Chain Experience event that takes place in San Jose, California Jan 25-27th 2016. Over 2,000 supply chain professional are expected to attend the event which will includes a partner showcase, 21 tracks and 100 breakout sessions.

MVP Community Contributors

One of the many great resources we have as members of the technology community is the Microsoft MVP network of community contributors. They may not directly be associated with our field but their knowledge can help inspire and guide our own projects. Today we want to celebrate these two Microsoft MVP community contributors:

Vincent Guigui

ncover_mvp_vincent_guiguiFrench Kinect for Windows MVP Vincent Guigui has immersed himself in the Kinect development and natural and immersive interfaces world. He loves working with Microsoft, and the opportunity to interact with product teams is a real asset to developing his deep knowledge. He said, “Being able to speak directly with the Kinect team is an incredible opportunity; it makes my job even more exciting.”

Vincent’s favorite technology tip is to remember that the user’s interaction must be natural – so much so that the user forgets the devices. He says, “Combining various sensors and devices grant the user experience to jump out of the limited frame of display and turn it into immersive experience by creating a new paradigm of human computer interactions.”

Catch up with Vincent’s latest project on his blog and on Twitter @VincentGuigui.

Vlad Catrinescu

ncover_mvp_vlad_catrinescuWhile he wasn’t “aiming” to become an MVP, Vlad Catrinescu’s contributions to the SharePoint community brought him attention from Microsoft. Now that he’s joined the ranks of the MVP community, he’s immediately seen the benefits. “Now it’s easier to get more resources to help out in community.” Vlad’s reach out in the community is tremendous. He’s co-founder of the community site www.sharepoint-community.net, which boasts nearly 7,000 members and around 275,000 annual visits. His personal blog, attracts more than 133,000 annual visitors.

Vlad is a SharePoint Consultant with more than 5 years in IT specializing in analyzing and deploying SharePoint Infrastructure. He also specializes in designing and implementing High Availability and Disaster Recovery SharePoint solutions, hybrid scenarios between SharePoint and Office365, and deployment automation using Microsoft TFS.

Press Release Oracle Launches EMEA Recruitment Drive to Add 1,400 New Cloud Sales Professionals Oracle’s rapid cloud growth drives workforce expansion and new cloud sales centers.

Reading, UK—Jan 14, 2016

Oracle has announced a Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) recruitment drive to hire 1,400 new cloud sales professionals who will play a vital role in fuelling the growth of the company’s cloud business throughout the region.

The new roles will be based in six locations: Amsterdam (The Netherlands); Cairo and Dubai (Middle East); Dublin (Ireland); Malaga (Spain) and Prague (Czech Republic).

As well as increasing its cloud sales workforce Oracle will be investing in two new cloud sales centres in Amsterdam and Cairo and new state-of-the-art offices opening this year in Dubai, Dublin and Prague.

The move to recruit 1,400 new cloud sales professionals into its EMEA inside sales operation follows a multi-billion dollar investment from Oracle in developing the most complete portfolio of cloud computing services.

Loic Le Guisquet, president, Oracle, said:

“These are exciting times for Oracle. We are extending our sales force to support our customers through their digital transformation. Starting today we are hiring 1,400 sharp, ambitious inside sales professionals across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
