Oracle Demantra Management
In today’s dynamic supply chain environment, most companies face constant challenges tied to shortening product lifecycles, lengthening lead times and fluid market demands. While Oracle’s Demantra applications can aid in the development of demand forecasts and help streamline operational planning cycles, launching and maintaining the solution in-house can be difficult.
The up-front capital expenditure (CapEx) often required to enable Demantra, coupled with the cost of hiring IT staff to maintain the solution, can quickly strain IT budgets. Moreover, to ensure Demantra’s security and availability, IT teams must regularly apply upgrades and patches in addition to supporting the solution’s underlying service infrastructure.
The Importance of Demantra Maintenance
Faced with conflicting priorities, IT teams may overlook Demantra maintenance, possibly creating vulnerabilities. Updating Demantra after a period of neglect often requires downtime, while every missed update is installed sequentially. Periodically, Demantra service packs enable new functionality. When IT teams fail to implement these packs, they leave organizations leveraging an unnecessarily limited solution, potentially damaging competitiveness and productivity.
