"OMP is a great planning tool supported by a excellent team"
OMP has partnered with us in implementing our vision of becoming a leader in the area of planning and scheduling and in our journey towards digitalization. The OMP tool has provided the right tool for data integration between Forecasting, Monthly Optimization and Scheduling; it includes the right functionality to optimize and analyze our plan and schedule; it generates the visuals and tables to enable the right business decisions; it also allows customization so that we can reflect our own processes and ways of working. Overall we are very happy with our decision to use OMP. Here are the explanation for the non-5 ratings: 1. support & services. We are very happy with the caliber of the team and their response time to issues/bugs. However, (maybe because of overall market conditions), we experience delays in implementing functionality, due to shortage of resources 2. performance: The speed of the optimization LP/MIP is good, but we have experienced issues with the speed of the overall application, especially when requiring the access of the database (opening the application, scenaria functionality, etc.) 3. user experience: OMP provides the fuctionality for developing tables and graphs. However, building these visuals is not very easy, and we often need OMP or external consultant support. 4. MDM: We found that the external data collaboration was not as user friendly (although I know that OMP is working on it now), so we had to create our own Power BI reports framework 5. N/A rating: Although I think that OMP supports advanced capabilities (e.g. demand sensing, MEIO, etc,), we have not found a good use for this functionality, we have not included them to the tool, so we have not tested them 6. Innovative Capabilities: We rely on external consultant to support
"Oracle Cloud planning - an effective tool to improve visibility & effectiveness of SCM "
Excellent support from Oracle customer success team and product development team throughout our implementation journey. It was a complex and multi country implementation with many custom business processes involved. The tool supported most of the requirements and the gaps were well covered using PAAS solutions. The build plan and other inbuilt analytics are very user friendly and significantly increased the visibility of the supply planning planning process. It took a little longer to implement (14 months) due to complexity and custom business logic but overall it was a smooth transition. We encountered some product bugs but development team interacted regularly and fixed it . The bug fix cycles were little longer but all issues were resolved. Initiatives like Customer Advisory Board helped to collaborate with other customers and discuss the new feature requirements with the product strategy team.

"Fantastic Network Design Democratization Tool!"
The platform itself is very flexible and has allowed us to approach old problems in new ways, with added horse power from cloud computing speed to solve bigger problems, faster, and more often. The promise of quickly being able to update models and scenarios and be able to democratize/share them has been slowly becoming a reality due mainly to the platform's dependency on live data feed/migration to cloud which is a significant enterprise undertaking. With live data feeds and migration to cloud, we feel we are now poised to reap the benefits we signed up for.

We have expanded the use to seven states and are continuing to extend the platform across the company.
