    Ease your job search and grab good offer 

    Deciding to move on is seldom an easy task but it is a choice you have to make, if it works for your career. Career Counselor Swati Salunkhe advises prudence, "Before taking a final call, one should try talking to the supervisor to gauge where the organization is headed and where he/ she stands and how he/she is perceived."
    In case you decide to move on, do not disclose it till you are ready to submit your resignation. Alienating your current workplace before getting an offer is the worst mistake you can make.
    Shraddha Manvi, Instructional Designer, LRN Pvt Ltd, feels, "Most people don’t want to leave their current jobs and then start hunting for a new one and understandably so. But you need to adhere to certain dos and don’ts if you want to job hunt while working."
    Online factors
    Registering in an online job portal will help you in your job search. However, ensure that it allows you to block your present employer and customize who can view your profile and what is visible to the viewer. Though you need to update the job board and put up your latest resume for relevant vacancies, you may consider leaving out details about your current organization or giving a different contact number.
    Time it right
    Try to schedule your interview before or after working hours. Avoid taking a leave or calling in sick, as repeated instances will make your supervisor suspicious and may put you in a spot. At the most, you can come in a little late or leave a little early. Since it is essential to be punctual for a job interview, it is advisable to schedule it in the morning. Sita adds, "Ensure that the interviews do not clash with any deadline/s at your current workplace."
    Be organized
    Since you will be hard pressed for time as you juggle official engagements and deadlines along with your job search, you need to be organized. Maintain records of the placement agencies you have forwarded your resume to, positions applied for and duly follow up with recruiters. In case you send customized resumes for each position, keep track of the profiles applied for and resumes sent.
    Nothing official about it
    Never waste office time to send applications, respond to job emails, faxes or even attend phone calls. It is advisable to step outside during lunch hour to attend phone calls. Shraddha points out, "It is unprofessional to browse job sites from your workplace; it shows disrespect towards your employer."
    Besides the ethical factor, using the office email id or computer can make your job search public as most organizations access logins. Also, your colleagues will get the wind of it, if they see you working on your resume or logging into jobsites.
    References and recommendations
    Often when the recruitment process is in the final stage, recruiters seek references. Try to provide references of colleagues from previous organizations after seeking their consent. Impress upon the recruiters the fact that they should not talk to anyone in your current organization before you get the final offer and if they do, it should be with your knowledge. Do apprise your supervisor before the recruiter contacts him/her.
    Best till last
    Although you will have your reasons for wanting to quit, never get into the exit mode till you have something concrete in hand. Swati advises, "You should wind up your work and handover in a proper manner. Ensure that even the last assignment gets its due." Act responsibly and do not take it easy even in the notice period. Leaving on a positive note will not only make you feel better but will also fetch benefits in terms of good recommendation and references from ex-employers.

    Oracle Supply Chain Management 


    Dec 31, 2010

    Last week’s Oracle Open World event at the Moscone Center in San Francisco provided an opportunity to gain insight into both the future direction of Oracle’s EAM applications and users’ best practices. The following highlights provide potentially rewarding ideas for companies that use Oracle for enterprise asset management (EAM).

    Upcoming Fusion Applications and EAM

    Oracle Fusion Middleware enables customers running Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and JD Edwards to extend the business functionality. Oracle Fusion Middleware provides an extensible platform for applications layered on it. According to Oracle, 78 percent of customers using these Oracle applications have installed Oracle Fusion Middleware.

    Oracle announced the planned release of Oracle Fusion Applications 1.0, which will be available in Q1 2011. The applications focus around:

    · Customer Relationship Management

    · Financials

    · Governance, Risk, and Compliance

    · Human Capital Management

    · Procurement

    · Project Portfolio Management

    · Supply Chain Management

    An Oracle customer’s strategy is straightforward. With Applications Unlimited, they can continue with their existing applications. If a function no longer meets their needs, they can augment it by building on Oracle Fusion Middleware with customization and/or adding an Oracle Fusion Application. Larry Ellison, in his opening keynote, stated that Oracle Fusion Applications is based on the best functions among Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and JD Edwards. Thus, Oracle Fusion Applications should represent best-in-class functionality.

    Future releases of Oracle Fusion Applications will increase their depth and add new applications. Since all four of the applications within Applications Unlimited have modules for EAM, ARC believes it is reasonable to expect an Oracle Fusion EAM application sometime in the future.

    MRO Inventory Optimization with ERP/EAM

    During an interview at OpenWorld, Andy Binsley, Sr. Director, Manufacturing and ALM Product Strategy at Oracle, explained the benefits of an integrated application (ERP including EAM) for MRO inventory management and optimization.

    In most companies, MRO materials offer a significant cost improvement opportunity. Usually, inventory is bloated because maintenance, focused on high equipment uptime, has a clear interest in having parts available "just in case." Also, with each new piece of equipment and upgrade, new part numbers are created that duplicate some existing stocking units (SKU) – the same parts have multiple SKUs. Generally, the longer the plant has been in existence, the larger the opportunity for optimization – particularly in asset-intensive industries like chemicals, oil & gas, and utilities.

    ERP includes modules for purchasing and inventory management. Since these modules are developed for direct materials, they are typically robust and well featured. These modules can also be applied to indirect, MRO materials. ABC classification focuses attention on the higher dollar volume, "A" items that provide greater financial benefit with optimization. Automated tools revise minimum/maximum levels based on changes in lead time, usage, supplier risk, and other factors. Some Oracle customers use advanced supply chain planning (ASCP) for a time-phased procurement plan that is regularly updated based on demand, inventory levels, and supplier parameters. These inventory management tools apply to MRO items with recurring usage for improved cost control and profitability.

    Spare parts for critical equipment – where extended downtime has extreme negative financial impact – starts with reliability analysis. The business intelligence and analysis tools in an ERP suite help identify the critical equipment operating near capacity and constraining overall plant production output. Spare parts with extended lead times use simple min/max inventory management with the min set to one. Rather than stocking multiple units for various sites, supply chain management tools determine the best location of an expensive spare so one item can support several sites. The reduction in inventory conserves cash and benefits the balance sheet.

    An Oracle customer in the utilities industry delivered a presentation on the company’s JD Edwards implementation. He provided insight into the benefits of "inventory data cleansing," i.e., reducing duplicate SKUs and adding category codes. Now, the utility’s technicians can search the MRO inventory and database using familiar "Google-like" search keywords, including non-case-sensitive wild cards. Also, search results have images that help the technician easily validate that they found the correct part. This usability, combined with cleansed data, provided value to the technicians and secured their buy-in. Also, clean data provides management with meaningful analysis and value.

    Typically, maintenance teams focus on the equipment and give optimization of MRO materials little attention. Inventory management usually represents "low hanging fruit" to enhance financial performance in both profitability and cash conservation. Members of the maintenance team – particular those having planning responsibilities – will benefit from APICS (Association for Operations Management) training. They will better understand the fundamentals of inventory management and gain confidence applying these to MRO materials.

    EAM integration with Shop Floor Systems

    Users apply Oracle Manufacturing Operations Center (MOC), available for over a year, for production management, MES, and sustainability pro-grams. During OpenWorld, an Oracle customer in the mining industry described their application for condition monitoring.

    MOC offers prebuilt performance dashboards and reports for real-time information and decision support. MOC has adapters to collect data from a variety of sources including automation systems, ERP, and EAM. Going beyond just information display, MOC has a rules engine for optimizing manufacturing operations that can also be applied to asset maintenance. This engine provides an event management framework including event occurrence, event monitoring, and event action. MOC can be integrated to equipment and automation systems using third-party device communications from Kepware, Matrikon, ILS Technologies, and Mitsubishi.

    For the mining customer, visualization provided a complete view of the supply chain across organizational silos. This particular client also applied MOC for condition monitoring to identify equipment issues in real-time. The customer stated they have anticipated failures by four to six hours, preventing costly downtime.

    Last Word

    Oracle continues to execute on its promise with "Applications Unlimited." Users of Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and JD Edwards can all preserve their investments, while benefiting from a clear strategy for adopting new technologies with Oracle Fusion Applications and Oracle Fusion Middleware.

    Inventory optimization provides benefits the C-suite appreciates, such as improved profitability and cash conservation. Maintenance teams can leverage the existing inventory optimization modules in ERP. Investing in training for inventory management should yield excellent returns – as it did for Oracle clients.

    For rotating equipment, condition monitoring suppliers typically couple their application with vibration sensors. Other industries could also benefit from effective condition monitoring, but solutions are lacking. MOC can fill the gap, as it did for a mining company.

    Oracle has been growing both organically and through acquisitions. OpenWorld has also expanded and now fully occupies the substantial Moscone Center and spills over into nearby hotel conference rooms. The presentations and exhibit halls cover a broad range of technologies, products, customers, partners, and more. Plentiful information is available that can provide good business benefits – just be sure you have comfortable walking shoes.

    It’s more intrasting to work with silverlight…………..

    The Future of Silverlight 


    Shiv Prasad Gupta

    There’s been a lot of discussion lately around web standards and HTML 5 in particular. People have been asking us how Silverlight fits into a future world where the <video> tag is available to developers. It’s a fair question—and I’ll provide a detailed answer—but I think it’s predicated upon an oversimplification of the role of standards that I’d like to clear up first. I’d also like to delineate why premium media experiences and "apps" are better with Silverlight and reveal how Silverlight is going beyond the browser to the desktop and devices.

    Standards and Innovation

    It’s not commonly known, perhaps, that Microsoft is involved in over 400 standards engagements with over 150 standards-setting organizations worldwide. One of the standards we’ve been involved in for years is HTML and we remain committed to it and to web standards in general. It’s not just idle talk, Microsoft has many investments based on or around HTML such as SharePoint, Internet Explorer, and ASP.NET. We believe HTML 5 will become ubiquitous just like HTML 4.01 is today.

    Standardize - Innovate

    But standards are only half of the story when we think of the advancement of our industry. Broadly-implemented standards are like paved roads.  They help the industry move forward together.  But before you can pave a road, someone needs to blaze a trail. This is innovation. Innovation and standards are symbiotic—innovations build on top of other standards so that they don’t have to "reinvent the wheel" for each piece of the puzzle. They can focus on innovating on the specific problem that needs to be solved. Innovations complement or extend existing standards. Widely accepted innovations eventually become standards. The trails get paved.

    In the past, this has happened several times as browsers implemented new features that later became standards. Right now, HTML is adopting as standards the innovations that came from plug-ins like Flash and Silverlight. This is necessary because some of these features are so pervasive on the web that they are seen by users as fundamentally expected capabilities. And so the baseline of the web becomes a little higher than it was before. But user expectations are always rising even faster—there are always more problems we can solve and further possibilities needing to be unlocked through innovation.

    This is where Silverlight comes in. On the web, the purpose of Silverlight has never been to replace HTML; it’s to do the things that HTML (and other technologies) couldn’t in a way that was easy for developers to tap into. Microsoft remains committed to using Silverlight to extend the web by enabling scenarios that HTML doesn’t cover. From simple “islands of richness” in HTML pages to full desktop-like applications in the browser and beyond, Silverlight enables applications that deliver the kinds of rich experiences users want. We group these into three broad categories: premium media experiences, consumer apps and games, and business/enterprise apps.


    Beyond the Browser

    In this discussion of the future of Silverlight, there’s a critical point that is sometimes overlooked as Silverlight is still often referred to—even by Microsoft—as a browser plug-in. The web is evolving and Silverlight is evolving, too. Although applications running inside a web browser remain a focus for us, two years ago we began showing how Silverlight is much more than a browser technology.

    Silverlight Outside the Browser

    There are three areas of investment for Silverlight outside the browser: the desktop, the mobile device, and the living room. Powerful desktop applications can be created with Silverlight today. These applications don’t require a separate download—any desktop user with Silverlight installed has these capabilities. These apps can be discovered and downloaded in the browser but are standalone applications that are painless to install and delete. Silverlight now also runs on mobile devices and is the main development platform for the new Windows Phone 7 devices. Developers that learned Silverlight instantly became mobile developers. Lastly, at NAB and the Silverlight 4 launch this year we showed how Silverlight can be used as a powerful, rich platform for living room devices as well.

    Expect to see more from Silverlight in these areas especially in our focus scenarios of high-quality media experiences, consumer apps and games, and business apps.

    When you invest in learning Silverlight, you get the ability to do any kind of development from business to entertainment across screens from browser to mobile to living room, for fun, profit, or both. And best of all, you can start today and target the 600,000,000 desktops and devices that have Silverlight installed.

    If you haven’t already, start here to download all the tools you need to start building Silverlight apps right now.
