Over the years I’ve been involved with several Oracle implementations where the decision was made to retain the existing warehouse and inventory management systems in place of Oracle WMS. Perhaps your organization had made a similar decision knowing that the existing warehouse solution was best suited for your operations. Not to say that Oracle WMS is the best warehouse management solution out there – because it may very well not be. In fact, it may be true that your Legacy inventory system is the best fit for your business. Not only may it be the best fit, but keeping the existing system in place also eliminates any risk involved in changing the systems of what can be a fragile inventory and shipping operation. In other words, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – right?
