  • OTM SIG User Conference 2011: Presentations

    Hello! I'm starting this thread early, because I know I'll need it soon. We're only about 36 hours away from this year's OTM User Conference in Philadelphia and I'm already behind - ha!

    Just as a note, I'm headed off for vacation near the end of this month, so I'm going to try and post all of the presentations as soon as possible (meaning, as soon as I receive all of them), so that you're not waiting until the middle of September

    Have fun and I hope to see you in Philly!

          Title: OTM 6.2.1 Upgrade Overview (Giant Eagle)

          Speaker: Brian Hogue, Giant Eagle

          In Q1 2011, Pittsburgh, PA-based Giant Eagle, Inc., a major supermarket and convenience store leader in Pennsylvania and Ohio, chartered a project to upgrade their Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) instance from v5.5 up to v6.2.1. Giant Eagle selected King of Prussia, PA-based MavenWire LLC to provide consulting and implementation services to support the upgrade effort, based in large part upon MavenWire’s experience and proven methodologies with OTM projects for an impressive list of customers. MavenWire was well-positioned to leverage their considerable talent pool, including consultants that had previous experience with Giant Eagle’s OTM configuration. Giant Eagle elected to upgrade to v6.2.1 in order to take advantage of OTM functionality in operational planning and usability enhancements, and to be in a better position to utilize such features as shipment tracking in the future. The project plan encompassed hardware and O/S (Linux) upgrades, a methodology for converting from Oracle’s 32-bit client to the new 64-bit client, and a database upgrade to 11g, and. The sum total of the technology changes and upgrades is expected to deliver significant performance improvements across the OTM system. In addition to delivering against the technology-related project goals, Giant Eagle’s management team saw this project as an opportunity to conduct process reviews, which they assessed and used to improved business processes within their organization, and which they plan to build upon even more in the future.

              Speaker: Dana Greco-Smalley, GENBAND Inc.

              Any system implementation can be challenging, and global trade automation systems have their own unique challenges. Complex compliance regulations, internal coordination with other areas of the business, scope, time, and resources are familiar constraints. GENBAND has recently completed its implementation of Oracle GTM, which is currently the most comprehensive implementation of this solution. In this co-presenting session with GENBAND, Deloitte Tax, and Deloitte Consulting, you will gain an understanding of the approach and the key activities involved with implementing Oracle’s GTM solution. Learn about leading practices and the key business drivers, including business and trade compliance requirements. In addition, hear about a case study from GENBAND, including information on project challenges, key design solutions, project team, and other configuration challenges to consider for a GTM project. The presentation will address the following key elements:
              • GENBAND case study
              • Project team structure built for success
              • Critical activities and key project milestones

                      Title: OTM Server Crash - Implications on Business Systems & Proposed Solutions

                      Speaker: Lakshmana Murthy Kodukula , Infosys Technologies Ltd

                      Though OTM is a robust application, it may sometimes crash in some exceptional scenarios such as high volume of inbound & outbound transmissions, complex logic/data processing by various custom workflows, database related performance issues etc. It is difficult to predict server crash but some intelligent alerting mechanisms can be developed to continuously monitor application & web server for any exception conditions that may result in a server crash. But a server crash may still happen in spite of best in class preventive mechanisms. During such an event, a systematic data recovery process is required to bring system back for business processing. Minimizing the OTM downtime and re-processing of backlog transmissions should be the key considerations for a steady recovery process. This paper covers some of the preventive mechanisms that proactively monitor OTM application servers for any uncalled activities. It also covers systematic data recovery process to ensure smooth functioning of business processes.
