DALLAS – June 9, 2015River Logic Inc., a leading provider of prescriptive analytics software, proudly announced that Nari Viswanathan has joined the company as Vice President of Product Management for its Integrated Business Planning (“IBP”) platform. The company is excited about Mr. Viswanathan’s vision, practical knowledge and leadership in the areas of integrated business planning and S&OP.

“We are thrilled to have Nari join our company,” said River Logic President Carlos Centurion. “Nari’s extensive real world experience in envisioning, producing, implementing and educating companies about IBP will be invaluable to our product roadmap and our customers’ and partners’ ability to gain maximum value from their planning and decision support investments.” Centurion added, “On a more personal note, I really look forward to working with Nari.”

Mr. Viswanathan is a senior industry expert with a proven track record of designing, developing and launching innovative Integrated Business Planning products and a three-time “Pro to Know” award winner (given by the Supply Demand Chain Executive magazine). Previous positions held by Mr. Viswanathan include Integrated Marketing and Innovation Development lead at Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. (NSE: TCS.NS), Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Steelwedge and Vice President/Principal Analyst at Aberdeen Group, a division of Harte Hanks Inc. (NYSE: HHS). He has a Master’s Degree in Manufacturing Systems Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Bachelor’s of Technology degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. 

“Current supply chain centric S&OP solutions have accomplished automation of existing manual Excel-driven processes but have failed to fundamentally accomplish the goal of creating a financially integrated business plan. River Logic offers an opportunity to fill this huge gap in the S&OP/IBP technology space – namely providing a prescriptive analytics solution that has an integrated operational and financial data model,” said Viswanathan. “As industry and government leaders get exposed to the impact achieved by the early adopters of IBP, I believe that River Logic and its global partner network are well positioned to exponentially replicate these successes - as such, I am thrilled to be joining River Logic.”
