IBM Introduces Predictive Analytics Optimization to the Supply Chain


About the only thing that gets us more excited than analytics is predictive analytics, and so when we saw an IBM press release entitled "IBM Introduces Predictive Analytics Software and Services that Forecast Asset Failure," we knew we had to ask some questions about a new IBM offering called Predictive Analytics Optimization (PAO).

Optiant Going to a (Much) Better Place: Logility - Part 1


The mergers and acquisition (M@A) market seems to be coming back slowly.

Emptoris has been part of IBM for about 20 months, and we’re coming up on the close of its first full fiscal year under the IBM label. Since the acquisition, IBM has been integrating Emptoris into its three-year-old Smarter Commerce conception (Emptoris was known to have had some 750 employees at the time of acquisition, but IBM will not disclose the number of employees now associated with it).

By not acquiring Ariba, IBM missed an opportunity to add a supplier network along the lines of that offered by SciQuest, TradeShift, E2open, and others. IBM would say that its focus more on strategic procurement lessens the immediate need for this, however the company prides itself on having a portfolio to cover the entire Read More
