Croatian Grocery Retailer Konzum Deploys Oracle Retail Planning & Optimization Solutions

Oracle Database News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 19:24
Press Release Croatian Grocery Retailer Konzum Deploys Oracle Retail Planning & Optimization Solutions Grocery Retailer Enhances Collaboration with Suppliers

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Mar 29, 2017

Today, Oracle announced that Croatian Grocery Leader Konzum has implemented Oracle Retail Planning and Optimization solutions to promote business operations efficiency, enable smarter decision making, enhance collaboration with suppliers and improve alignment with the store network. Konzum is part of Agrokor, whose retail group has 2.000 stores in Adriatic region to be the dominant grocery retailer.

Part of this growth is a result of acquisitions which have led to the development of a diversified store network. Managing inventory levels for many different store layouts, means having to deal with a lot of exceptions on a regular basis. Since the exceptions are part of the daily operations, Konzum decided to embrace the issue and address it in a systematic manner.

Konzum is a long-time customer who leverages Oracle Retail Merchandise Operations Management, and Supply Chain Management solutions to drive operational efficiencies and enable growth. Recently, Konzum extended the partnership with extending the use of the Oracle Retail Predictive Application Server with a bespoke solution called Replenishment Parameters Management (REPAMA) developed by Oracle PartnerNetwork Gold Level sponsor Sigmia. The REPAMA enables direct management of the inventory levels in the system from the right team, rather than communicating required changes via error prone channels.

“The implementation of the REPAMA on the Oracle Retail Planning platform has reduced response times, increased efficiency in decision making and reduced the overall workload through better communication,” said Adrian Alajkovic, Inventory Management & Planning Director, Konzum.

"Any project engagement establishes a supplier-customer channel and always brings up the challenge to deliver real value to the customer. In partnership with Oracle, REPAMA has addressed this challenge recursively by delivering value to Konzum's consumers.  Achieving channel coordination is always a win-win strategy,” said Argiris Mokios, Supply Chain Solutions Director, Sigmia.

Back by the power of the Oracle Retail Merchandising and Supply Chain solution, this extension enables a case of real Vendor Managed Inventory in 700+ stores with the Oracle Retail Predictive Server extension on Planning and Optimization. Now Konzum is able to directly engage suppliers into managing inventory levels.

“Empowerment means giving authority, control and responsibility to the teams who are require information to act. Modern retailing transforms the user experience, infuses science into persona based dashboards,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “Retailing must become more intuitive and seamless, and technology can be leveraged better execute strategic goals.”

Oracle Retail @ The Poland & CEE Retail Summit 2017

Oracle Retail is the Platinum Sponsor of the POLAND & CEE RETAIL SUMMIT 2017 hosted on 29-30 March 2017 in Warsaw, Poland. The Retail Summit includes two intensive days filled with discussions about business and exchanging strategic information.

Oracle Unveils Industry-First Cloud Converged Storage to Help Organizations Bridge On-Premises and Oracle Cloud Storage

Oracle Database News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 16:00
Press Release Oracle Unveils Industry-First Cloud Converged Storage to Help Organizations Bridge On-Premises and Oracle Cloud Storage Organizations Can Seamlessly Merge Oracle Storage Cloud Functionality and Economics with the Power of High Performance Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Mar 29, 2017

Oracle today unveiled the industry’s first Cloud Converged Storage, representing the first time a public cloud provider at scale has integrated its cloud services with its on-premises, high performance NAS storage systems. Oracle ZFS Cloud software, included in the latest Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance release, enables organizations to easily and seamlessly move data and/or applications to the cloud to optimize value and savings, while eliminating the need for external cloud gateways and avoiding the costs of software licenses and cloud access licenses—AKA “cloud entrance taxes”—charged by legacy on-premises vendors for the right to access the public cloud from their infrastructure platforms. As an example, Oracle’s total cost of ownership versus one industry competitor was 87 percent less.*

Oracle’s approach removes the burden on users to do their own on-premises to public cloud integration, manage environments comprised of different security requirements, support teams, industry standards, and skill sets, as well as the struggle with end-to-end visibility, diagnostics and support. Oracle is, in fact, the only company that can bring the two worlds together as one co-engineered solution. On-premises NAS storage providers cannot offer this level of convergence and economic benefits as they lack a public cloud, and public cloud providers lack on-premises high-performance NAS storage systems.

“With its ZFS Cloud, Oracle simultaneously challenges not only public cloud providers that cannot deliver on-premises, high-performance storage systems, but also traditional hardware vendors that lack truly integrated public clouds,” said Mark Peters, Practice Director & Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Oracle is delivering business value with a genuine hybrid data ability with a ‘cloud insurance option’ built right into the storage system, significantly streamlining users’ experiences.”

“Cloud is forcing IT practitioners to rethink their organization’s infrastructure to accommodate current technology while future-proofing their business for tomorrow,” said Steve Zivanic, Vice President, Storage, Converged Infrastructure, Oracle. “By converging the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances with Oracle Storage Cloud, organizations benefit from the highest performing storage systems for their on-premises needs, while seamlessly extending them to Oracle Cloud resources when necessary. Oracle ZFS Cloud is the unifying enabler that helps customers bridge the gap between their current infrastructure and plans for broader public cloud adoption.”

The convergence of the company’s Oracle Storage Cloud with its high-performance Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances—the storage foundation for Oracle Public Cloud and IT with over 1 exabyte installed—empowers users with the performance of flash and the agility, simplicity and elastic scaling of the Oracle Storage Cloud. Oracle customers can use Cloud Converged Storage for elastic application storage, back-up and recovery, development, testing, active archive storage, snapshot replica storage, Dev Ops with a single API for both on-premises and in the Oracle Storage Cloud, and lift-and-shift workload migration. Modern applications can leverage data both in on-premises high performance Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances and in the Oracle Storage Cloud without any application changes.

The latest update also includes a series of Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance innovations that extend Oracle Database dynamic automation capabilities and increase Database Administrator productivity by 10X as well as add all-flash pools to accelerate critical business applications. Enhancements include the following:

  • Oracle Intelligent Storage Protocol 2.0 Delivers Next Generation Automation for Oracle Database and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance: brings new capabilities that increase Oracle Database performance, decrease manual storage tuning through automation, and simplify database storage optimization. Developed collaboratively between the Oracle Database and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance engineering teams, it prioritizes IOs based on database hints, effectively increases online transaction processing per minute by up to 19-percent, Oracle Database RMAN backup performance by up to 33 percent, latency-sensitive control file IO performance by up to 13x, and log writer IO performance by up to 3.9x—all without database or storage administrator intervention.
  • All-Flash Storage Pools Improve Application Performance: flash storage pools that boost performance for any application are now available and offer seamless scalability from 16TB to 2.4PB of capacity and over 34GB/second of throughput, regardless of access protocol. These systems accelerate database performance, deliver low latency for critical applications while reducing energy resources and needed datacenter space.
  • Cloud-Scale Data Protection: Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance delivers market-leading data backup, with over 62TB per hour, and data restore, with over 60TB per hour, performance over Infiniband, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel. This latest software release extends Oracle’s leadership in data protection with innovations in data reduction and data mobility. New data reduction technology reduces the backup storage footprint by up to 9x and bandwidth demands by up to 4x with advancements in deduplication and compression. In addition, enhanced data mobility technology increases the amount of data that can be securely distributed to multiple locations by up to 2x with advancements in replication, intelligent data reduction, and remote data distribution security.

Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance is trusted by the world’s leading financial services companies, telcos, semiconductor companies, oil & gas and media & entertainment companies for its extreme performance and massive levels of sustained bandwidth for data-intensive applications in the cloud and on-premises.

Blue Shield of California, Family Health Network, and Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC) Select Oracle Cloud to Modernize Operations and Drive Business Growth

Oracle Database News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 13:00
Press Release Blue Shield of California, Family Health Network, and Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC) Select Oracle Cloud to Modernize Operations and Drive Business Growth Complete cloud solutions help healthcare insurers deliver affordable healthcare through improved financial functions

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Mar 29, 2017

Oracle today announced that Blue Shield of California, Family Health Network (FHN), and Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC) have selected Oracle Cloud Applications to help them provide healthcare coverage at an affordable cost by digitizing and modernizing their financial, planning and budgeting systems, and business processes. With Oracle Cloud solutions for finance, these organizations have the tools needed to be able to achieve the speed and flexibility required to support and scale with the healthcare industry’s rapidly changing needs.

Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud help organizations simplify and streamline operations with increased visibility and insights into financial and operations. By reducing IT complexity and costs, organizations can also increase productivity, by freeing employees to help provide their insured members with the best and most affordable health insurance plans.

Health Insurance Organizations Move to the Cloud

Blue Shield of California chose Oracle ERP Cloud to support more than four million health plan members and nearly 65,000 physicians. The move to Oracle ERP Cloud has allowed Blue Shield of California to streamline hundreds of application interfaces and reports, which has stabilized the monthly close. With Oracle ERP Cloud, Blue Shield of California expects improved financial analysis to enable cost savings for policy holders.

“When we looked at transforming our technology, we observed our competitors moving to the cloud, and for good reason,” said Michael Sheils, VP, corporate shared services fin.  “After a careful evaluation, we selected Oracle as our partner because of their commitment to innovation in the cloud, their expertise in the health payer space, and the breadth and depth of the ERP Cloud offering.”

Improved financial efficiency was the primary driver for Family Heath Network to select Oracle ERP Cloud. A not-for-profit provider sponsored health plan in the Chicago area, FHN is one of the largest managed care plans in the region under the Medicaid Family Health Plan. In evaluating a new financial system, FHN decided a move to the cloud was the best approach in order to best streamline operations and upgrades.

“In insurance, clear finance reporting is critical in order to process claims as quickly as possible,” said Nirav Shah, vice president of finance at Family Health Network. “Oracle ERP Cloud is a valuable tool for our company, streamlining our financial operations, while also maximizing business performance and growth.”

As changes in the financial reporting structure and lengthening close times began to impact HCSC, they recognized that cloud technology could help them to remain agile and quickly react to future changes. The largest customer-owned health insurer in the United States, HCSC selected Oracle ERP Cloud to help transform its financial systems and support its 22,000 employees serving more than 15 million members across five states, with the functionality, breadth, and depth of the Oracle Cloud.

“We evaluated vendors based on several drivers, including strategic fit, capability, maturity, vendor commitment and support, employee feedback, and implementation considerations,” said James Kadela, SVP controller at HCSC. “Oracle ERP Cloud was the natural choice based on the nature of HCSC’s financial systems. In addition to its current capabilities, Oracle is heavily investing in research and development and we feel confident that Oracle ERP Cloud will evolve with us to support our long-term business strategy.”

“Oracle is committed to supporting the healthcare industry with our complete, secure, and modern set of enterprise-grade cloud applications that help healthcare payers provide affordable health insurance to their communities,” said Terrance Wampler, vice president of financials applications strategy at Oracle. “Our connected, best of breed ERP Cloud solutions are uniquely placed to cater to dynamic business environments and enable our customers to modernize core financial operations, empower its people, and support growth.”

Oracle Cloud delivers the industry’s broadest suite of enterprise-grade cloud services, including software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and data as a service (DaaS).

Oracle Database News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 13:00
Press Release New Certifications Demonstrate Continued Momentum for Oracle Public Cloud Cloud compliance certifications further validate Oracle Cloud in highly regulated sectors

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Mar 29, 2017

Oracle today announced it has achieved a series of compliance certifications and attestations for its Public Cloud offering, including certifications and attestations for ISO 27001, HIPAA, SOC1 and SOC2 for a number of core services. Administered by Schellman & Co., these certifications in industries such as healthcare help provide validation of Oracle’s offerings in areas including security, availability, processing integrity and privacy.

The Improved Test Suite Hierarchy

Ranorex.com: Latest News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 09:29

When running into complex test scenarios, the test suite might get increasingly incomprehensible and complicated – not to mention the lack of clarity when analyzing reports.
That’s why the test suite structure in Ranorex 7.0 has changed in favor of a flat and, therefore, more readable test suite hierarchy.

Ranorex 7.0 introduces smart folders to Ranorex Studio. They replace the former nested cases as well as the former simple folders. Using smart folders, you can structure your test suite in any possible way: equip them with external data binding or define the number of iterations the underlying test scenario should be executed. This makes the test suite as well as the reporting JUnit compatible, simplifying the integration of enhanced reporting in CI systems.

How to Upgrade Existing Ranorex Solutions

After you install Ranorex 7.0 and open your existing solutions, the test suite will be automatically upgraded. The upgrade process includes the following changes:

  • Former simple folders will be replaced with smart folders
  • Nested test cases will be automatically re-structured using smart folders

An upgrade report will inform you about the changes made to your solution.

Upgrade Report

The Evolution of Simple to Smart Folders

As mentioned before, former simple folders are replaced with the more powerful smart folders. This has two clear benefits: You can define the number of iterations the test scenario within the smart folder should be executed, and also bind external data and parameters to the underlying test cases and modules. Additionally, smart folders – in contrast to the former simple folders – can now be executed in the same way as test cases.

How to Map Any Test Scenario without Nesting Test Cases

When you upgrade your solution, all nested test cases will be automatically converted to smart folders. A sophisticated mechanism processes the test suite according to the following rules set:

  1. Every test module is part of a test case (or a setup/teardown region)
  2. A test case cannot be a descendant of another test case

Remove Nested Test Cases

You can convert smart folders to test cases at any time. Simply right-click the smart folder and select Convert to Test Case in the context menu.

Convert Smart Folder to Test Case

The mechanism I previously mentioned ensures that the given rule set is fulfilled.
The same applies for copying and moving test cases in the test suite. The following dialog will pop up before test cases are automatically converted to smart folders or vice versa.

Convert Items Dialog

As already known from test cases, smart folders can access internal and external data sets. You can then bind these data sets to variables of the included modules or module groups. To do so, right-click the smart folder and open the properties from the context menu.

Data Driven Smart Folder

With Ranorex 7.0 you can, next do making smart folders and test cases data-driven, also define the number of iterations a smart folder or test case will be executed. To do so, press <F4> to open the properties pad and select the desired smart folder or test case. Now you can simply enter the number of iterations in the dedicated property.

Set Iteration Count

Benefits of the Flat Test Suite Structure

By eliminating nested test cases, the entire test suite structure as well as the structure of the resulting report is leaner and more readable. Additionally, it will also be easier to understand the counting of the executed test cases, while the test case count of the report now also conforms to the JUnit standard.

Report

You can also generate a JUnit compatible copy of the report. This allows you to easily integrate your test execution and reporting into many continuous integration systems. To do so, right-click the test suite root folder and open the test suite properties from the context menu. Switch to the Report tab and enable the option Create a JUnit compatible copy of the report.

Create-a JUnit compatible copy of the report

The report will be copied to the Output Folder (by default \bin\Debug) of the test suite project.

As you can see, it is well worth to upgrade to Ranorex 7.0 if you would like to benefit from a flat test suite and report structure that will make your test suite and reports leaner, more readable and easier to integrate in CI systems.
