IBM & ILOG Matrimony: Good for BPM, Uncertain for SCM? -- Part 3
Part 2 of this blog topic continued to analyze IBM’s rationale behind acquiring ILOG to bolster its service oriented architecture (SOA) and business process

logictools   professor at MIT , LogicTools has over 250 corporate customers (over 70 of which are Fortune 500 members) that benefit from its sophisticated solutions. While ILOG has since made some inroads in selling the acquired LogicTools applications, the solutions it has developed in-house have had limited success. Although “ ERP- system-agnostic” in principle, LogicTools’ SCM applications strategy has long been to fill the so-called “white spaces” within the SAP SCM suite [ evaluate this product ], in Read More...

SAP Acquires SmartOps, At Long Last
This could be the very first time as a market observer that my reaction to a merger announcement is not “Why?” but rather “Why now?” Namely, in late February

logictools  for ToolsGroup, IBM ILOG LogicTools , Manhattan Associates , JDA Software , Logility , and Kinaxis . But some of these competitors can still offer MEIO/S&OP options that may be a significantly better fit for some companies’ business in certain industries (and for a much smaller price tag). Take Logility for example—the vendor has long had its own in-memory solvers (that SAP HANA now promises to offer) and has long integrated its S&OP solution with former Optiant MEIO (Optiant had been SmartOps’ Read More...
A Modern Tale of Long (Supply Chain) Tails -- Part III

logictools   For instance, unlike ILOG's LogicTools [ evaluate this product ], SmartOps or Optiant , it does not offer full capabilities for complex Bills of Material (BOMs) (for instance, the items with multiple routings). Also, the solution is not suitable for pure “make-to-order (MTO)” manufacturing environments that do not carry finished goods. Finally, smaller finished goods distribution companies with less than US$100 million in revenues should also consider some simpler and cheaper products. However, for Read More...
A Tale of a Few Good SCM Players - Part 1

logictools  Optiant , and  ILOG LogicTools  (now part of IBM ) do not compete with Manhattan for the same business, these same vendors, at least in my observation, have a somewhat different view of the IO world than Manhattan does. Namely, all of the above named companies are manufacturing-process-centric. They provide bolt-on optimization engines essentially for  enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions (e.g., the SAP and SmartOps relationship). Manhattan’s IO solution has a purposely designed holistic Read More...

Still, warehouse and transportation management, the traditional bread and butter pieces of SCE, have emerged as two of a few rare remaining fertile areas where companies still have an ample opportunity to redesign and optimize, while they are at the same time less time consuming and more oriented towards return Read More...

Conclusion Even without the extraneous market drivers, like recession, the future of a plethora of SCEM vendors remaining as viable stand-alone entities would be highly dubious.
