Oracle took another step forward in its efforts to bolster its cloud offerings Monday with the launch of two new products designed to help companies conduct their entire order-fulfillment processes in the cloud.

Oracle Order Management Cloud and Oracle Global Order Promising Cloud are both extensions of the company's Supply Chain Management Cloud and aim to provide modern order-management, visibility and fulfillment capabilities.

The new Order Management Cloud focuses on order capture and fulfillment with the goal of improving order handling. Among the potential benefits for users are centralized order monitoring and the ability to proactively manage order exceptions. Companies can also define, implement and maintain their own fulfillment policies without the need for technical programming tools, Oracle said.

The new Global Order Promising Cloud, meanwhile, helps companies source and schedule orders so as to minimize fulfillment costs and maximize customer service. It matches demand with available inventory and inbound shipments, for example, taking all potential supply sources into account. It can also handle most orders in a fully automated fashion, enabling companies to enforce corporate fulfillment policies while saving money on administration, inventory and logistics, Oracle said.

Both new products are integrated with Oracle's existing cloud offerings for enterprise resource planning (ERP) and the "configure, price and quote" (CPQ) part of the sales process. Taken together, they create a complete "quote-to-cash" offering that covers the sales process all the way from price quotes to revenue management and can help break down silos separating companies' sales, fulfillment and finance organizations, Oracle said.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
