Oracle Brings Agile Pricing to Italian Hypermarket Bennet


Press Release 

Pricing Efficiencies Gained with Oracle Retail Merchandising Planning and Optimization

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Oct 31, 2017

Today, Oracle announced that Italian hypermarket chain Bennet has deployed Oracle Retail Planning and Optimization solutions to increase efficiencies. Bennet operates 63 hypermarkets throughout northern Italy. Bennet focuses on price, service, and selection. With a centralized view of inventory, Bennet can leverage Oracle Retail Regular Price Optimization to maximize assortments to anticipate and meet customer needs.

Bennet understands that to stay competitive, it must adapt the price of its goods to react to changes in the market, including competitor pricing, seasonality and market trends. Its legacy system was time consuming and Bennet sought to improve the speed and the accuracy of the process to better serve its customers.

“We are committed to providing our customers with the very best quality and value, so it’s important that our prices match those of our competitors,” says Alessandro Volpato, Chief Information Officer, Bennet. “Our legacy system simply didn’t provide the ability to adapt our prices in real-time and we decided to replace our legacy technology with a proven, industry-leading platform.”

In 2015, Bennet turned to Oracle to transform its ability to manage pricing and improve its competitiveness while balancing profitability. The Italian hypermarket chain has dramatically cut the time it takes to adapt its prices following the implementation of Oracle Retail Merchandising Planning & Optimization—from days to hours. Bennet is now empowered to make real-time pricing decisions.

“Bennet has seen instant return on investment, as this activity can be completed in a few hours, and because the process of data entry is automated, it eliminates the possibility of errors associated with manual entry,” said Alessandro Volpato, Chief Information Officer, Bennet.

The first phase of the project was rolled out in July 2015 across Bennet’s full range of grocery items. Bennet focused on introducing rule-based pricing capabilities, including price proposal and competitor price comparison. The grocer is now extending the use of the Oracle platform with the optimization algorithms support. Using the Oracle platform, Bennet can dynamically manage pricing data without coding, and change pricing thresholds and rules without ever needing to involve the development team. Bennet can now predict the impact of pricing to both individual items and to categories of products, enabling it to balance and execute price effectiveness against competitors.

“Today, it’s never been easier to check and compare prices between different retailers, so it’s vital that they can adapt the price of items to react to their competitors, or to other factors,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “Customer loyalty is all about trust, and a big factor in maintaining this trust is making consumers feel that they are getting the best possible value. We look forward to working with Bennet to unlock even more of the value of our Merchandising platform, and help strengthen its brand and relationship with customers.”

The next phase of the implementation sees Bennet incorporating more sophisticated KPI within its operations and corporate strategy to simplify and drive the pricing decisions.

Curiosidades del mundo de los negocios: El logo de P&G



EL antiguo logotipo de P&G se originó en 1851 como una mezcla cruda que irrumpen los trabajadores en el Río Ohio pintadas en casos de velas de estrellas de P&G para identificarlos. P&G cambió más adelante este símbolo a una marca que mostraba a un hombre en la Luna con vistas a 13 estrellas, dijo, para conmemorar las trece colonias originales.

La compañía recibió publicidad no deseada de los medios en la década de 1980 cuando se difundieron rumores de que el logotipo de la luna y las estrellas era un símbolo satánico.
La acusación se basó en un determinado pasaje en la Biblia, específicamente Apocalipsis 12: 1, que dice lo siguiente: "Y apareció una gran señal en el cielo: una mujer vestida del sol, con la luna bajo sus pies y sobre su cabeza una corona de 12 estrellas ".
El logo de P&G consistió en la figura de un hombre en la luna rodeado por 13 estrellas. Algunos afirmaban que el logotipo era una burla del símbolo divino aludido en el verso anterior, interpretando así el logotipo como satánico. Cuando la barba que fluye se encuentra con el círculo, tres rizos sobresalen, se decía que eran un reflejo del número 666, o el número de la bestia. En la parte superior e inferior, el pelo se enrosca sobre sí mismo y se decía que eran los dos cuernos semejantes a los de un carnero. La luna y estrellas del logotipo dejaron de aparecer en 1985, en un fallido intento de acallar los rumores.

OracleBlogs By Beatriz Herencia: 10 tendencias tecnológicas para 2018

Fuente: By: Beatriz Herencia
Marketing & Communication Specialist

Lo estamos viviendo. Estamos ante una revolución tecnológica constante. La era digital, la hiperconexión, el Internet de las Cosas, la robótica... El tsunami digital nos obliga a todos (empresas incluidas) a subirnos a la ola de la transformación si queremos sobrevivir.

Un reciente estudio realizado por Gartner identifica las principales tendencias tecnológicas que afectarán a las empresas en 2018. Se espera que crezcan rápidamente y que, su proceso consolidación y adopción sea efectivo de aquí a cinco años.

1. Inteligencia Artificial

Los modelos de aprendizaje automático (machine learning) juegan un papel fundamental. Las técnicas de IA están evolucionando rápidamente y las organizaciones tendrán que invertir en habilidades, procesos y herramientas para explotar con éxito estas técnicas y construir sistemas mejorados. La capacidad de usar IA tiene el objetivo de mejorar la toma de decisiones y de reinventar modelos de negocio.

2. Aplicaciones y análisis inteligentes

El estudio destaca, que en los próximos años, prácticamente todas las aplicaciones y servicios incorporarán niveles de Inteligencia Artificial. Este tipo de servicios crearán una nueva capa entre personas y sistemas gracias a su potencial de transformar la naturaleza del trabajo tradicional. El reto aquí reside en utilizar la Inteligencia Artificial para aportar valor empresarial 

3. Intelligent Things

Como mencionábamos al comienzo de este artículo, la hiperconectividad no ha hecho más que comenzar. La llamada era del Internet de las Cosas permite la interacción con el entorno entre dispositivos y humanos. Los expertos prevén un gran despliegue de modelos empresariales basados en estos objetos inteligentes.

4. Digital Twins

Este modelo se refiere a la representación digital de una entidad o sistema del mundo real. Consiste en un modelo virtual idéntico al producto o espacio que deseamos. Dicho de otra manera: es crear productos desde el mundo virtual. Bien definidos tendrán potencial para lograr una mejor y más eficiente toma de decisiones dentro de la empresa.

5. Edge Computing

Un modelo basado en el procesamiento de información y recopilación de contenido, una mayor conectividad para explotar un modelo productivo no centralizado. La tecnología basada en la nube puede ser utilizada para crear un modelo productivo orientado a la prestación de servicios.

6. Servicios conversacionales

En los próximos años las interfaces de conversación se convertirán en un objetivo primordial de diseño para la interacción con el usuario. Impulsarán el gran cambio del paradigma en cómo los seres humanos interactuamos con el mundo digital.

7. Experiencia inmersiva

La realidad virtual y aumentada también está cambiando la manera en la que la gente percibe e interactúa con el mundo digital. Para impulsar un verdadero beneficio, las empresas deben aplicar estas tecnologías examinando escenarios específicos de la vida real. La mixed reality es un tipo de inmersión que fusiona y amplía la funcionalidad tanto de la realidad aumentada como de la virtual. 

8. Blockchain

De una moneda digital a una plataforma para la transformación digital. Esta tecnología está evolucionando y los expertos creen que puede ofrecer una salida y con ello servir como base de negocios digitales. Tiene infinitas aplicaciones potenciales. Sin duda una tendencia, que dará mucho de qué hablar en los próximos años.

9. Event driven

Con el uso del IoT, cloud computing, blockchain, la gestión de datos y la IA, los eventos de negocios pueden detectarse mucho más rápido y analizarse con un mayor detalle. El negocio digital impulsa la necesidad de que los líderes adopten el pensamiento de estos eventos.

10. Riesgo adaptativo continuo

Para permitir que las iniciativas empresariales digitales sean seguras, los líderes deberán adoptar un enfoque continuo de riesgo adaptativo y de evaluación de confianza para permitir la toma de decisiones en tiempo real, basadas en el riesgo y la confianza con respuestas adaptativas.

Estas tendencias dejan claro que las empresas deben tenerlas en cuenta de cara a diseñar sus estrategias digitales y de innovación o corren el riesgo de perder terreno sobre aquellos que sí lo hacen.

Oracle Health Sciences Collaborates with dMed in China to Enhance Pharmacovigilance Management


Press Release 
Oracle Health Sciences Collaborates with dMed in China to Enhance Pharmacovigilance Management with Oracle Health Sciences Argus Safety

Suzhou, China—Oct 27, 2017

Today Oracle announced that is collaborating with dMed in China as rapidly emerging local Chinese biopharma companies look to meet growing regulatory compliance and safety management requirements but do not have the resources, systems and skills in-house to do so.

There is an increase in clinical trials in China, deepening regulatory reform at CFDA, and China’s new membership at ICH. All of these changes have heightened the importance of global alignment on clinical development and post approval responsibilities. One of the areas lagging is drug safety and pharmacovigilance. This has resulted in the strong need for a reliable drug safety database that helps meet international safety standards.

“This is why dMed decided to work with Oracle Health Sciences,” said Dr. Lingshi Tan, Chairman and CEO, dMed Biopharmaceutical Co., Ltd. “The Oracle Argus Safety system enables our Pharmacovigilance experts to provide comprehensive case management and safety reporting services. The ability of accessing a reliable drug safety database helps customers meet international safety standards and make better safety decisions.”

“We are pleased to announce our collaboration with dMed Biopharmaceutical Co., Ltd as an Argus Safety customer in China. dMed has right drug safety surveillance and pharmacovigilance professionals who can make best use of our system to support product safety monitoring in compliance with local and global regulatory requirements,” said Mr. Steve Rosenberg, senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Health Sciences. “We believe there will be fantastic synergy between dMed’s in-depth knowledge in pharmacovigilance and Oracle’s comprehensive pharmacovigilance platform.”

By collaborating with Oracle Health Sciences on business process services, dMed aims to help its clients to optimize global compliance and integrate risk management into key processes. Local sponsors such as Hua Medicine, Zai Lab and others are leveraging these services and the Argus platform to meet their Safety and compliance requirements.
