0 comments

The Supply Chain Matters blog remains committed in providing the highest quality content and insights focused on the broad spectrum of supply chain management, procurement, B2B fulfillment, manufacturing and product lifecycle management business processes and supporting technology. This site provides the broadest coverage of industry-specific supply chain challenges, developments and learning.

They are all the umbrella of our site banner- supply chain business process and technology capability does indeed matter.

Did you know that our content can be accessed from three separate Internet addresses? That our @SC_Matters_Blog handle on Twitter has accumulated over 20,000 followers and that we also have a dedicated group on Linked-In? Our Quarterly Newsletter now reaches over 500 subscribed email addresses.

You will notice that we do not populate this site with a multitude of vendor ads, streaming advertisements or sponsored videos.  There are too many of these types of sites among the supply chain web universe that are more interested in generating content-driven revenues vs. quality and objectivity of content and insights.

We feature a limited number of sponsors which both share in the desire to support quality thought leadership in supply chain management and to bring attention to their products and services.  We carefully chose such sponsors for the overall value they provide. Readers can anticipate exciting announcements related to new sponsors in the days to come.

In 2015, we will feature a revised third-level Named sponsorship program to accommodate the needs of up and coming technology and services vendors who desire broader supply chain functional and IT brand visibility.  That includes a far more attractive and compelling annual sponsorship rate.

As you begin your brand and product marketing initiatives for 2015, consider being a sponsor of Supply Chain Matters.

There is often a view that during the summer months, when many take vacation time to enjoy warm weather, family and friends, that social media interest focused on the broad spectrum of supply chain management wanes.    Supply Chain Matters Blog

The Inaugural Named Sponsor of Supply Chain Matters- Steelwedge Software

Comments Off

We are very pleased to announce that Steelwedge Software is our inaugural Named level sponsor of the Supply Chain Matters blog.    Steelwedge Software

Founded in 2000, Steelwedge is an integrated business planning and Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) technology support provider which has gained significant momentum in the supply chain technology arena. Steelwedge’s cloud-based S&OP software solutions connect people, process and technology to power a single view of a company’s business.This provider’s named global customers include Applied Materials, Hospira, Jaguar Land Rover, Monsanto,Lenovo, Nissan, Nvidia, Spansion, among others.

Supply Chain Matters has featured a number of prior commentaries related to this provider and this author has been featured in prior Steelwedge sponsored webinars and events.

In May of 2013, we called reader attention to Steelwedge’s S&OP Insight module, powered by a separate analytics engine that combines online analytics and planning to deliver contextual planning to analyze decisions related analysis of product demand or inventory segmentation and service level planning for key customers. We found, after witnessing a demo, a neat provision for customers to be able to add other analytical “apps” to these capabilities, and then incorporating them into the S&OP process. In late December, our commentary focused on the company’s newest “app” available on the AppExchange, named Sales Pipeline Bridge, which is designed to leverage information within the Salesforce.comForce platform. The new extension supports the ability of planners to tap into sales pipeline data and over time, weigh early consumer sentiment factors regarding newly released or existing products. Another potential benefit is the ability to reconcile pipeline-based forecast data with order history, causal data and other data sources to provide S&OP process participants another layer of overall product demand intelligence.

This is a vendor that understands the needs for enabling more predictive and insightful S&OP process for many industry supply chains and we are pleased that they are our latest sponsor. Readers can click on the Steelwedge logo in the sponsor panel to gain further information on products, services and customer case studies.

E2open, Inc.: A Continuing Sponsor of the Supply Chain Matters Blog

Comments Off

We are once again pleased to announce to our Supply Chain Matters readers that E2open, Inc., a provider of strategic, cloud-based software solutions for collaborative planning and execution across global networks, is a continuing Sustaining-level sponsor of this blog for 2014. We are pleased that this innovative technology provider has elected to associate E2open_logo_350x53itself with the ongoing global supply chain-focused thought leadership being provided by Supply Chain Matters.

Today’s global supply chains are far more complex with fast moving business events. They need the ability to foster more responsive and timely decisions across the extended supply chain with the context of these decisions grounded in customer, operational and/or financial priorities. Supply Chain Matters has continually advocated that one of the better means for industry supply chains to enable more responsive capabilities is in leveraging capabilities of an end-to-end B2B platform that connects the bulk of value-chain processes.

As a premiere B2B network provider, E2open provides cloud-based, on-demand software solutions enabling enterprises to bring collaborative planning and execution to the global trading network. This provider has appropriately adopted its singular marketing tag line to be: “Helping to manage the demand you can’t predict and supply you don’t control.” Today, the E2open Business Network includes upwards of 37,000 trading partners and over 117,000 users.

Collaborative execution is the ability of all partners in a global trading network to work together to continually resolve real or potential problems with the right information, faster, and more profitably. E2open helps brand owners develop a competency in collaborative execution, accelerating success across a number of key business initiatives and supply chain processes, including S&OP, new product introduction, consolidated global procurement, VMI, parts shortage management, risk management, and supply chain control tower.  With the acquisition of Icon-SCM in 2013, E2open has now added enhanced supply chain planning capabilities including “what-if” scenario and simulation planning, network planning visualization and analytics with the availability of E2 Planning and Response Version 11.2. That has positioned this end-to-end network provider to be able to support supply chain control tower capabilities for customers.

E2open customers include Avnet, Canon, Cisco, Embraer, IBM, Hewlett Packard, HTC, Foxconn, L’Oréal, Lenovo, Land O’Lakes, LSI, Pratt and Whitney, Seagate, Vodafone, and many others.  The company  is headquartered in Foster City, California with operations worldwide.

If your organization has needs related to overcoming existing systems and communication barriers, unifying suppliers and trading partners with common information, or multi-tier process orchestration, we recommend you place E2open on your short list.
