Optiant Going to a (Much) Better Place: Logility - Part 1
The mergers and acquisition (M@A) market seems to be coming back slowly. One evidence of this could be the late-March acquisition of long-struggling

m part 17  independent competitors such as  Mercia (now part of Infor )  and  Demantra (now part of Oracle Value Chain Planning ) .

Consequently, as MRP today is part and parcel of ERP, SCEM, being rather an enabling technology in a supply chain network than an application on its own, will gradually be blended into the SCM family of matter-of-course' modules, losing thereby its functional sovereignty.

Given human nature, any vendor, by bringing greater transparency to supply chain Read More...
