Leftover 2015 Budget- Consider Being a Noted Sponsor of Supply Chain Matters in 2016

Comments Off on Leftover 2015 Budget- Consider Being a Noted Sponsor of Supply Chain Matters in 2016

If you still have leftover budget for 2015, you may want to consider having your organization as a noted sponsor of the Supply Chain Matters blog in the coming year. It may well be one of your organization’s smartest end-of-year investments.

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. If you need more evidence, review our current deep-dive 2016 Predictions for Industry and Global Supply Chains.

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 instituted a 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 or need to support a new re-branding initiative.

Do consider a wise investment and consider joining one of our already noted sponsors of this blog. We will be here publishing for the remainder of December and in the New Year.

Comments Off on Supply Chain Matters Welcomes Our New Sponsor- River Logic Software

Supply Chain Matters is very pleased to welcome River Logic Software as our newest Named sponsor.

Founded in 2000, River Logic is a privately held technology firm with a missioRiver Logic Softwaren to establish prescriptive analytics and optimization capabilities in business planning and decision support needs. This provider’s focus is on helping customers and business partners increase their performance, decision-making agility and ability to predict business outcomes.

As we have noted in many prior Supply Chain Matters industry-specific commentaries, the current clock speed of business change impacting industries is continuous. To insure overall agility to such changes, businesses must be able to make quick and informed decisions, in the context of expected business performance outcomes. The ability to analyze integrated supply chain operational and key financial data, and apply prescriptive outcomes by what-if analysis is now more than ever, an important capability to differentiate industry competiveness and adaptability.

River Logic provides a prescriptive analytics platform termed Enterprise Optimizer®, built on a service-oriented architecture that supports SaaS, on-premise, and soon, Cloud-based deployments. This is complemented by an Integrated Business Planning application that simplifies customer adoption among line-of-businesses and cross-functional supply chain teams. This Editor has had the opportunity to review River Logic’s software capabilities along with expected new releases of functionality coming in the not too distant future.

River Logic technology supports a wide range of integrated business planning needs including:

Strategic – Asset investment planning, healthcare population management

Tactical – Advanced S&OP, utility infrastructure planning, workforce planning

Operational – Scheduling policy optimization, cash management, truck loading.

River Logic applications have been developed and deployed across multiple industries, including manufacturing, healthcare (for both providers and payers), natural resources, logistics and transportation, government and financial services.

In conjunction with River Logic, Supply Chain Matters will be featuring a series of market education commentaries related to enterprise optimization and prescriptive analytics applied to critical decision-making needs such as integrated business planning and sales and operations planning (S&OP) processes.

Our topical commentaries will address and include among other topics:

  • The key differences in descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics capabilities applied to planning processes.
  • What is enterprise optimization and can it be a achievable goal?
  • The shortcomings of traditional business intelligence in addressing expected future business outcomes
  • Means for enhancing supply chain and business planning analytics capabilities, along with examples of prescriptive analytics and simulation capabilities applied to S&OP processes.

Join me in welcoming River Logic Software as our new sponsor of enterprise and supply chain planning and intelligence thought leadership. For more information regarding this innovative technology provider, readers are welcomed to visit this River Logic web site.

River Logic has made available a complimentary white paper that fully describes why successful, modern supply chain planning requires Enterprise Optimization™ along with benefits of Enterprise Optimization™ to S&OP strategy. That paper can be obtained by accessing this dedicated web link.

Comments Off on Our Best Supply Chain Matters Readership Month To-Date

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

That was not the case with Supply Chain Matters.

The months of July and August provided our largest reader audience thus far in 2014.

Last month, this web domain experienced over 47,000 visits with more than 14,000 being unique, first-time visitors. The average duration of visitors exceeded 5 minutes, which is a significant number when one considers the multitude of web destinations that are now focusing on supply chain management.

We remain 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.

You will notice that we do not populate this site with a multitude of vendor ads, streaming advertisements or sponsored videos.  We will maintain that standard, sometimes at the expense of added revenues.

We do however have a limited number of named 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.

We have limited sponsorship opportunities available that extend through the end of 2014 with some attractive pricing. If interested, send us an email at: info@supply.chain.matters <dot> com.
