Silicon Image Selects Oracle to Improve Operational Efficiencies

Looking to streamline its business intelligence (BI) and identity management initiatives, Silicon Image (News - Alert) has implemented Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation and Oracle Identity Management, two key components of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g is the number-one application infrastructure foundation available today. It enables enterprises to create and run agile, intelligent business applications while maximizing IT efficiency through full utilization of modern hardware and software architectures.

Silicon Image was able to take advantage of the intuitive, role-based intelligence capabilities viewed through interactive, customizable dashboards showcasing financial, human resources (HR), and operational information and reports by implementing its Oracle (News - Alert) BI solution. Within weeks of running it on top of an Oracle data warehouse, Silicon Image deployed Oracle BI Enterprise Edition.

“The ad hoc analysis, dashboard and reporting capabilities of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition brought Silicon Image flexibility and delivered additional insight into our data, which considerably helped in streamlining our decision making and business processes,” said Shahab Muhammad, director of information technology at Silicon Image, Inc. “With the upgrade of Oracle Identity Management, we were able to also automate time consuming activities and reach our compliance requirements more effectively.”

Featuring data from critical Oracle and non-Oracle applications and data sources including the Oracle E-Business Suite Financial Management and Oracle E-Business Suite Manufacturing applications as well as third-party CRM and HR systems, Silicon Image’s BI solution delivers customized dashboards and reports. To help improve decision making processes, company executives now have timely access to dashboards refreshed daily that span sales, actuals, projections, expenses, time and labor, and more.

Recently, Helm Bank, a Colombian private financial institution, selected Oracle software and hardware to run its core banking, customer-facing services and marketing functions. The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is the only database machine that provides extreme performance for both data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP) applications, making it the ideal platform for consolidating onto grids or private clouds. Offering extreme performance, Helm Bank's platform includes Oracle FLEXCUBE Universal Banking running on Oracle Exadata Database Machine.
