Oracle Incorporates Demantra Into J.D. Edwards EnterpriseOne
July 10, 2007 Alex Woodie
Oracle will make the Demantra demand management application part of J.D. Edwards EnterpriseOne with the release of Demantra 7.1.1, the software giant announced last month.
Demantra is a supply chain planning application that helps companies predict demand, determine profitability of products, and manage complex global supply chains. Oracle announced its plans to acquire Demantra, a privately held company, for an undisclosed sum in May 2006.
With Demantra 7.1.1, which is available now, Oracle is making Demantra a preconfigured component of the Advanced Planning components of its EnterpriseOne and E-Business Suite ERP systems. Since Demantra uses the same demand and master data as these ERP products, users can reduce setup, configuration, and on-going maintenance costs by using Demantra for supply chain planning needs.
Other new capabilities delivered with Demantra 7.1.1 include support for Oracle Fusion Middleware, improved planner productivity, enhancements to data loading and export, new demand analysis worksheets and series, and data security enhancements. It also allows users to perform more precise statistical forecasting, analysis, and collaboration scenarios, without special training or IT support, Oracle says.
