Oracle Releases Oracle Warehouse Management
Oracle releases Oracle Warehouse Management, a modular application that can now be operated by businesses and the enterprise without upgrading to Oracle E-Business Suite. Oracle has had a busy 2009, capped by its plans to acquire Sun Microsystems, in addition to a number of smaller companies.Oracle announced the release of a new version of Oracle Warehouse Management June 1. The scalable application allows users to manage complex warehouse operations, including multiple supply chain processes and materials management functionality. A version of the application had previously only been available to customers using the Oracle E-Business Suite. In its new and more modular iteration, the Warehouse Management application can be run outside of the E-Business Suite, allowing businesses to utilize a logistics and transportation solution without necessarily needing to upgrade other parts of their operations' IT.
However, the new version does support earlier versions of the Oracle E-Business Suite. It also features support for multiple order capture systems under one independent fulfillment engine, multiple inventory solutions, and a variety of warehouse execution systems operating against a single global ERP system.
