    2017 OTM USER CONFERENCE
    August 6-9, 2017
    Loews Hotel, Philadelphia, PA


    Dear All,

    On behalf of the board, I would like to thank everyone from our sponsors, speakers and attendees for attending this year's OTM SIG Conference in Philly. It was great seeing everyone again this year to catch up and learn about the progress of your OTM/GTM journeys. Our final attendance came in around 410 attendees, with 75+ being new! As we discussed in the wrap-up succession we are looking to continue to grow the conference and content. To do this, we need your help reaching out to your peers, co-workers, fellow users of OTM and invite them to come next year and even perhaps be a speaker! We are always looking for new users to join us in collaboration and knowledge sharing.

    Presentations are now available to view!

    Looking forward to successful conferences on December 7-8, 2017 for APAC (Singapore) and March 21-23, 2018 for Europe (Amsterdam). Save the date for the US OTM User Conference: August 5 - 8, 2018!

      Efficient Management of Carrier Contracts Using Controllership Processes and Workflows
      Ashit Upadhyay, Penske Logistics
      Chirag Patel, Penske Logistics

      Learn how to manage carrier contracts using controllership reports. Reports identify if any actions need to be taken based on the business rules. Based on the business rules, we have scheduled reports that run and send reports to the rate management team. These reports will identify if any action needs to be taken to correct the rate records. We will also discuss how reports can be viewed on the web portal as well and can be refreshed in real time.

          Integrating OTM with Legacy Applications
          Vijay Sai Somisetti, Scoular

          The session discusses the integration of on-premise OTM instance to other in network and out of network applications that are not very well known in the market. We will discuss workarounds to address XML/Webservice integration, explain the challenges we faced in building these integrations and lessons learned. In the process of building these integrations, we used a variety of integration tools and we will discuss their advantages and challenges. The advantages include, reusing the existing applications in the organization and using the no cost ODI application, that comes as an add on with OTM installation. Limitations include, restrictions while working with outside the network applications, restrictions while working with SOAP enabled webservices and complexities involved with different data models of other applications and data exchange protocols dictated by partners outside of our network. We will open the discussion to applications that other customers have integrated with OTM and what other tools they used for integration.

                On-Prem To Cloud: KapStone Journey
                Sara Remmers, KapStone
                Sreejith Perumbilavil, Inspirage

                KapStone implemented OTM in 2013, and has been an on premise customer since. In 2016, KapStone decided to evaluate a move to OTM Cloud to make use of benefits provided by Oracle Cloud. As with any project, there have been challenges and opportunities, pain points and benefits and a lot of learning from migration to Cloud from on-prem. We had to decide whether our OTM Implementation, which we had been using for more than 3 years, was "Cloud-Ready". Considering version mismatches, this project is both an OTM Upgrade as well as a Cloud Migration. This presentation outlines our journey from OTM On Premise to OTM Cloud, the whys (reasons of moving to Cloud), hows (the process of moving to Cloud and Change Management) and ouches (pain points and challenges of the process), benefits to be gained and lessons learned.

                  Re-Drive the Concept of Second Leg Shipments: When Shipment Ship Units are Replaced by Integration
                  Anuj Garg, KSAP

                  The paper will talk about two orders consisting of different ship units being planned into separate two leg shipments, which in effect means two orders being planned into four shipments. The shipment ship units on the first leg are replaced by integration and the two orders are combined into a single shipment on the first leg but still remain as separate shipments on 2nd leg. Now when we get an actual time on the first leg both the second leg shipments were not being re-driven based on the actuals received on the first leg. This paper will provide the details as to which fields at the back-end help in re-driving the second leg of the shipments and how Oracle needed an example to provide a fix so that the second leg of the shipment could be redriven.

                      The Real ConAir: How the U.S. Marshals Move Prisoners Using OTM
                      Douglas Brummett, Capgemini / JPATS

                      Did you know that OTM is being used to schedule the transportation of prisoners? The U.S. Marshals Service and its Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System (JPATS) agency has been using OTM to schedule the movement of prisoners throughout the United States. Although our operations are unique in delivering prisoners, the creative use of OTM's functionality can be leveraged by many other industries.

                      Each day JPATS plans 3,500 - 5,000 movement requests from districts across the U.S. to transport prisoners from one jail facility to another. OTM is used to create regular shipments, both air and ground. During an overnight bulk planning run, OTM schedules the majority of requests/orders on multiple shipments to their destinations. Our implementation of OTM (release 6.4.1) demonstrates moving prisoners enforcing client specific Business Rules while executing the planner using Multi-Leg Itineraries with Multi-Ground Schedule Options per Leg and each order having multiple itinerary paths to route. This presentation will illustrate our solution architecture and configuration framework for processing thousands of orders across a complex transportation network.

                      The solution approach will be presented to describe how OTM is being leveraged to configure complex sets of itineraries, to apply shipment pricing strategies driving preferred routings, to process small clusters of like orders through the bulk planner in a client-specific sequence, and to implement client-specific business rules to drive desired planning results.

                        Challenges in Mobility Integration
                        Kranthi Askani, Infosys

                        OTM objects store a lot of information. To seamlessly transmit all this information to a handheld device without time delay requires a middleware. Designing the table structure in the middleware server largely depends on the usage of the handheld device itself - if it is primarily used for logging events, the number of tables to create and store information would be minimal as opposed to using handhelds for downloading orders and creating shipments.

                        In designing the table structure in the middleware server, one needs to be wary of potential pitfalls such as when an order is unassigned in OTM, the XML has to be sent out instantly so that the handheld doesn't assume the order is still available for planning. If a user adds a delivery event to the order in OTM, it should not allow the same delivery event to be added from the device because it is already delivered. This information has to be transmitted without delay and errors.

                        And then of course, one has to ask, where to place the code - in the middleware server or in OTM? Who decides and what are the factors to consider before arriving at such a decision?

                            En Masse Shipment/Order Adjustments Against Bulk Plan
                            Shravan Kommareddy, GBAT

                            This presentation will cover how to make en masse Orders, Shipunits, equipment and shipment adjustments to Planned Shipments against Actual shipment or Loading File from (CFS,Warehouse,Factory etc).

                            CFS/Factory may not always follow OTM Planned shipments results while loading. Orders, Shipunits and equipment could be jumbled, omitted or replaced against different shipments, making it difficult for the user to manually make adjustments. Especially for high volume shipments.

                            By using simple mapping techniques and automation agents we can effectively make adjustments en masse to Planned Shipments against Actual Loading File, or Actual shipped. This will help clients to Streamline and maintain accuracy in document generation, filing (Customs/Border Crossing) and communication to downstream systems.

                            Learn how this Solution can be re-used with no Customization.
