I’ve been working the last nine years for a software integration firm, named for Apps Associates. We are headquartered outside of Boston in the Biotech Startup hot spot. Since Cloud Software as a Service solutions first became available around 2015, we have been standing up Oracle Cloud based manufacturing solutions for a boat load of Biotech start-ups. We’ve seen it really start to take off. For the first few years, it was always the same model – stand up Financials first, then an outsourced Supply Chain solution that focused on Demand / Supply Planning and integration with external contract manufacturers (CMO’s). These early stage companies did not have the funding or expertise to do scaled up manufacturing. So they outsourced it. Oracle had a great CMO Supply Chain solution with an extensive integration model for easy collaboration with CMOs and suppliers. For these clients, it was all about the supply chain visibility and coordination. That’s all they needed.Continue reading “Biotech Manufacturing Software – There’s a shift in the wind!”
Today, I am thrilled to share that Apps Associates has acquired Ethos Solutions, an IT professional services consulting company specializing in Salesforce implementations, customizations & integrations.Continue reading “Welcoming Ethos to the Apps Associates Family”
Organizations are constantly struggling for faster access to information that can help them make better decisions. The dynamic nature of many businesses has made it imperative for them to acquire solutions that can help move the needle on decision making. This is where a need for faster and flexible reporting becomes a necessity and that can really help provide data driven insights into meaningful KPIs thus empowering businesses to make quick and efficient decisions.
If you’ve ever participated in a project to implement an enterprise-wide cloud-based technological solution, you’ve experienced the highs and lows of that effort; the fast-paced, far-reaching, all-encompassing work that requires all-hands on deck every day for months and months. Business as usual is turned on its head and everything is up for consideration.Continue reading “8 Radical Best Practices to Get to Go-live”
Introduction: In our previous blog, we were able to gain deeper insights into our data through exploratory data analysis and as a supplement we were also able to create a Data Visualization project with graphs generated from the Explain feature. In this blog, we will create a model using one of the machine learning algorithms and apply it to the test data to predict customers that are likely to open Term deposits.Continue reading “Knowing Your Model Performance, Simplified with Oracle OAC Machine Learning”
Introduction: In our previous blog, OAC Machine Learning we learned about identifying, loading and preparing data using two different data sources in order to achieve the objective of our model. After loading the data, we also looked into the data enrichment feature called “Recommendations” which is data cleaning efficient. In this blog we will gain deeper insights into our data through exploratory data analysis and as a supplement we will create a Data Visualization project with graphs generated from the Explain feature. Later in the third blog we will create a model using one of the machine learning algorithms and apply it to the test data to predict the customers that are likely to open Term deposits.Continue reading “Gaining Deeper Insights of Data with Oracle OAC Machine Learning”
