Session: Milk-Runs “Literally” – Deriving Process Efficiencies Through Oracle Fleet Management

Abstract: Last year, we started our journey to address the issues of manual, disparate processes, lack of visibility, lack of central data repository for capturing fleet metrics. Using Oracle Transportation Management and Fleet Management has enabled us to standardize our milk-run processes across multiple locations. Every company has a different approach on addressing challenges. We looked at the three-step approach that Darigold followed to transform our fleet operations from manual processes to automated manageable processes and providing visibility to our operational strengths and opportunities.

Abstract: The current Global Trade environment demands companies to stay on top of ever-changing regulations and continually reduce risk.

Session: Performance in the Cloud – Cummins GTM Performance Journey

Abstract: Performance within any environment is critical to a successful implementation and a successful solution. This is even more important when the solution is on the cloud. While GTM Cloud provides significant benefits, it also poses a unique challenge when managing performance. Performance tuning within the cloud requires an in-depth understanding of configurations are available and what approaches need to be considered when migrating or implementing on the cloud. Sree Subramanian, Logistics IT Manager, outlined Cummins’s experience in performance tuning to support their Item Classification Automation and extensive Restricted Party Screening, screening over 8.5 million parties a day. He discussed the initial challenges, performance tuning approach and future roadmap.
