AspenOne SCM

Good for large organizations but can be used across various industries from manufacturing to even medical. Also very Citrix publishing friendly to allow multiple users located anywhere to use AspenOne Supply Chain Management across the organization while consolidating their data in a centralized secure place. This ability to consolidate and centralize applications and data within the same facility makes migration, high availability in DR scenario easier to configure as well.

Oracle PeopleSoft SCM

I think with a company that has a deep and educated developer pool and had a view of what they want their ERP to flow would really do well with Oracle PeopleSoft. I think smaller organizations could also benefit using an out of the box product like PeopleSoft, however for our mid-size organization we don't have the bandwidth to support it at times and customize it to make it work optimally for us.

Pros

  • Provides a wealth of data and information interpreted across management and supply chain team located at various offices and plants globally
  • Implementation was with relative ease with small dedicated team. Implementation time was also quick from launch to go-live in three business quarters.
  • Excellent technical support from AspenOne and their tier support is knowledgeable on the product.
  • Good bug fixes and quick support along with predictable update release schedule.

  • Oracle Peoplesoft Supply Chain Management is a completely open, integrated and risk mitigating system which is quite foremost in the market today. It deals with the complicated arena of supply chain management which and various modules such as Supply/Demand Planning, Management, Service, Logistics Distribution and Order Management.
  • Oracle's Peoplesoft has the entire architecture stack to support and maintain this huge and complicated system of supply chain management. Tools such as Integration Broker, Web Services, 3 tiered architecture and enhanced security capabilities contribute immensely to maintain and manage a complex system.
  • Supply Chain Management caters to all levels such as suppliers and end users/customers. The system is widely used in all stages and Peoplesoft provides a robust module and security enhanced features to support this system at all levels.

Cons

  • While AspenOne Supply Chain Management generate a wealth of data and information, the ability to organize and create reports can be time consuming as well as steep learning curve.
  • While incremental updates are predictable, AspenOne major version updates can be difficult to implement with wide user impact causing more downtime than we prefer.
  • Report merge and legacy version conversion tools can be made easier to use with more GUI (graphical user interface) options and less command base as well as status progress graphic and confirmation of completion would be very helpful.

  • While the Oracle Peoplesoft Supply Chain Management solution is complex and quite open, there are areas which definitely can be improved. Mainly with integration to various third party vendors. There are now various tools in the market which make this integration seamless and we cannot but think how to expand Peoplesoft's capabilities to be more open in this area.
  • Database optimization is another big challenge as we continue to grow and accumulate more and more data for this module. The data stored is indefinitely large and Oracle is now leaning more towards data management tools/software/databases such as Big Data and Exadata to mitigate this risk.
  • One major improvement which can be made is to use a traditional job monitoring tool instead of Oracle Peoplesoft's scheduler. There are a wide variety of tools available in the market for customers to choose from and it would nice to see a proprietary tool from Oracle to fill in this gap.

Alternatives Considered

AspenOne Supply Chain Management was a cheaper alternative to SAP HANA and while as not feature-ful and not as easy to integrate with SAP data, the interface was easy enough to configure without the need for HANA. It was also easier and quicker to deploy and implement which alleviated our business pain point. It's like an old saying the best software is the one you can use, now! Our management and supply chain team members have been happy with the product and very few complaints arise from the production usage or performance.

Oracle Peoplesoft Supply Chain Management has the ability to scale up to new industry challenges such as cloud and fusion technologies. Other products do or are exploring these capabilities but time and experience have proven that use of one product and scaling it up on its own has many advantages. Ofcourse,with Oracle SCM or with any other leading industry product the main disadvantage would be customizing based on each organization's needs and trying to improve on the same.

Return on Investment

  • We needed AspenOne Supply Chain Management quickly back in 2013 since our biggest pain point was tracking movement of products and ability for multiple departments and locations to access the information to complete their responsibilities within the organization. Was able to successfully implement in three quarters for go-live.
  • Since our initiation implementation our two major version upgrades did not go as smooth as we would like causing downtime of user access and the system does not have flexibility to run previous version while upgrading to new version. Upgrade path needs to improve to minimize downtime.
  • The business reported quick ROI of better than expected results and the software paid for itself in under three years which beats projection.
  • Centralized implementation makes disaster recovery (DR) configuration easier to manage.

  • ROI has been very good.
  • Our business objectives have been met pretty well over that last several years and we currently have no plans to change.
