Avata Business Cloud Accelerates Substantial Momentum

Avata, Inc., a strategy and implementation consulting firm focused on supply chain management, and Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced that client adoptions of Oracle Value Chain Planning solutions in the Avata Business Cloud have accelerated during the Oracle fiscal year ended May 31, 2014.

More companies are looking to cloud-based supply chain applications to speed time-to-benefit, reduce initial cash outlays and better manage deployment risk. During the past year, Avata has deployed Oracle’s Demantra (Oracle Demantra Demand Management, Oracle Demantra Advanced Forecasting Demand Modeling Oracle Demantra Real-Time Sales & Operations Planning, Oracle Demantra Predictive Trade Planning and Optimization), Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning (ASCP), Oracle Production Scheduling (PS), Oracle Service Parts Planning (SPP) and Oracle Advanced Planning Command Center (APCC) for clients in the Avata Business Cloud to support supply chain business process improvements from demand / supply planning and S&OP to trade promotion management, production planning and advanced analytics.

“The growth we've experienced in the Avata Business Cloud so far this year is phenomenal and we're well on our way to exceed expectations for 2014 in terms of global expansion," said Stefan Achilles, Managing Partner Avata.

Among new Avata Business Cloud clients are a major pediatric nutrition company, an international floral products manufacturer and a large manufacturer of ball bearings for automotive and industrial markets.

“We are seeing strong interest in cloud solutions across most industries and geographies, from mid-market firms to large multinational corporations,” said Kurt Haller, Vice President Sales and Marketing at Avata.

The Avata Business Cloud provides Oracle software through the Oracle Business Process Services program, hardware and managed services via a monthly subscription that simplifies operations and accelerates time-to-value. Companies may also re-deploy existing licenses of Value Chain applications into the Avata Business Cloud to achieve efficiencies and cost savings versus on-premise deployment.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
