IBM & ILOG Matrimony: Good for BPM, Uncertain for SCM? -- Part 1

Part 1 of this blog post series talked about my attendance at the APICS 2009 International Conference in Toronto (Canada) in early October. I attended only a few education sessions, as my visit focused more on exploring the expo floor and talking to the exhibitors.
