Supercharging Supply chain processes with Oracle Supplier Data Hub (SDH) and Supplier Life Cycle Management Produts (SLM)

Traditional E-Business suite of applications from Oracle often fall short when it comes to on-boarding of Suppliers in terms of evaluating and managing suppliers across trading life cycle thus often times resulting in less optimized supply chain processes.  These challenges are often compounded with the sub-optimal supplier data resulting in users to deal with duplicate suppliers and some times even the supplier data that may be incomplete and incorrect.

Often times it is very  challenging to answer questions such as

     1) Did we follow through all processes in on-boarding a specific Supplier?

     2) Is this Supplier compliant with regulations?

     3) Is this Supplier ethically compliant with policies established by your firm?

     4) When was the last time Supplier facilities were inspected?

     5) Is the Supplier data correct?

     6) Which Supplier information is the correct one when duplicates exist?


With the introduction of both Supplier Life Cycle Management and Supplier Hub (Master Data Management aka MDM) applications, the whole Supply Chain processes can be super charged by not only managing the Supplier data across its trading life cycle, but also provide a single and 360 degree  view of the Supplier across the enterprise using Supplier Hub capabilities.  Best of all the Supplier Hub functionality leverages the TCA framework that many of you are already familiar with.

Here is a presentation given at North Central Oracle Applications Users Group (NCOAUG).  No problem, if you didn’t attend their training day conference in August 2010.  The session has been recored and posted at SlideShare site along with embedded audio ofcourse. 

This presentation focuses on the features and functionality of both Supplier Life Cycle Management and the Supplier Hub products from Oracle and how they can help you answer questions like the ones above and solve many of the supplier data challenges that users face on a day to day basis.
