E2open Releases New Version of E2 Planning & Response

E2open, a provider of cloud-based solutions for collaborative planning and execution across global trading networks, has announced the availability of E2 Planning and Response version 11.2. These enhanced planning capabilities by icon-scm, acquired by E2open last summer, are now available via the cloud, to further facilitate collaborative planning and execution across the E2open Business Network of trading partners.
The idea is to help businesses with complex global supply chains to pinpoint the location of the constraints in their current production and delivery plans. Traditional planning systems lack timely and comprehensive data to create trustworthy plans that considers demand priorities and supply constraints. They also lack fast problem resolution, scenario, and decision support capabilities to manage trade-offs.
To that end, E2open is delivering the following enhancements to its planning and response modules:
  • Scenario management
  • What-if simulation
  • Network visualization and analytics
  • SAP-certified ERP adapters
Vendors of rapid planning and response solutions—competitors like Kinaxis—are likely being put on notice here, although E2open is not yet established in the sales and operations planning (S&OP) domain. It will also be interesting to see whether SAP continues to actively sell the SAP Supply Chain Rapid Management by icon-scm offering.
