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

smartops  announced plans to acquire SmartOps , a leading provider of inventory and service-level optimization software solutions. Founded in 2000, SmartOps released its first multi-echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) product in 2001. The software company provides key operating parameters and targets for supply chain planning (SCP).

However, all of these specialist vendors’ final destinations will likely be some broader SCP platform and ecosystem; the only question is when and for what selling price they will be willing to succumb to this inevitability.

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

smartops  SAP has relationships with SmartOps and Optiant , so I doubt it would want to jump in the fray.  I doubt the offering is big enough to make much of an impression on Oracle. I could see a venture capital (VC) firm getting its hooks into and merging it with something or trying to make a business around it.  I doubt IBM would want to sell it to another big consulting firm, even the ones in India that might have fun with it.  I’d say it is 80/20 that IBM keeps it versus spinning it off.” This Read More
