Oracle continues to progress its capabilities in supply chain. Though there were many good presentations on the breadth and depth of Oracle's supply chain offerings, the real testament to the company's success comes from the manufacturers in attendance. Every vendor has its challenges, and every manufacturer knows that there will be challenges, but how these challenges are addressed goes a long way to validating its competence. And if the comments from attendees are any indication, Oracle is competent indeed. There were a broad range of manufacturers in attendance, some presenting, all willing to speak informally about their experiences with Oracle.
