Part I of this blog topic introduced MCA Solutions and its flagship Service Planning Optimization (SPO) solution for planning and optimizing spare parts

servigistics blog  I would expect that Servigistics has a similar list of languages, perhaps more in use as it has had a bigger international presence. This brings us to the fact that MCA has some fierce competition in the market, especially in distribution intensive accounts. For one, it is Servigistics, with a much wider functional footprint (which will be discussed in separate blog posts), better international presence and bigger install base/revenues. In fact, the two vendors' over the shoulder attitude is quite Read More

servigistics blog  You Want Your App to Talk Back to You (as a Chatterbox)? - Part 3 In Part 1 of this blog series I admitted to being a late adopter of a sort , in part for not immediately jumping onto the  social media  bandwagon. In particular, my initial reaction to  Salesforce Chatter (a.k.a. Collaboration Cloud)  was tepid  when it was introduced at the Dreamforce 2009 conference . However, a few months have passed and this period has helped salesforce.com craft the much clearer cloud computing evolution Read More

My blog series in 2009 entitled “ A Tale of a Few Good SCM Players ” talked at great length about RedPrairie Corporation, JDA Software , and Manhattan Associates , including their corporate history and acquisitions.

It took a few years for two of these companies to decide Read More

About a year later, I Read More

servigistics blog  PLM and Global Sourcing Related? Duh, And How! (Part I) A number of TEC blog posts have discussed benefits but also the inevitable caveats of white papers (including all too common vendors' self-serving marketing fluff and buzzword verbiage ), and about their (un)intended audiences .
