Martijn Lofvers of Supply Chain Movement stated the following about the European supply chain market:
"At European level, the use of supply chain software is advancing at different speeds. Many companies are still working on implementing software to support their periodic sales & operations planning (S&OP) decision-making process. It has long been clear that this solution does not necessarily have to come from the same vendor as the ERP system – which often tends to be from SAP, Oracle, Microsoft AX or Infor. When choosing the best sub-solution, a best-of-breed approach is most logical now that various software can be integrated – including with cloud-based solutions – relatively easily."
River Logic was also noted as one of the innovators noted in SCM's research. "One completely new type of supply chain software emerging is the self-configurable platform which enables the creation of an optimization model for a wide range of advanced analysis. Successful suppliers of such platforms for predictive and prescriptive analytics include Aimms, Locom and River Logic," finished Lofvers (source).
