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

jda ilog  Associates. For its part, JDA Software , prior to its  blockbuster acquisition of Manugistics in 2006 , was a juggernaut in the retail SCM space but plagued with obscurity. This obscurity was in great part due to JDA's protracted disinterest in engaging in sharing its strategy with the market influencers and with a hodgepodge of point solutions on disparate technologies and with no coherent vision and strategy.

Epicor is by far a much stronger and prosperous company than these erstwhile miserable software companies (all sold from a position of weakness and for cents on dollar).
