A Modern Tale of Long (Supply Chain) Tails -- Part I
As a little kid growing up in former (and erstwhile happy) Yugoslavia and watching my elders, day in, day out, downing dozens of strong Turkish coffees with

The deterring line (a bogey-man tale) from my folks would be that “kids that drink coffee end up with a tail on their rear side.” A few decades later (being currently admittedly addicted to Starbucks triple-shot espresso drinks), it appears that modern supply chains suffer from long tails, albeit not due to anyone’s premature coffee consumption. That (and much more) was the enlightening conclusion of the recent Webcast Read More

i part 8  Stimulus Readiness - Part I At  Deltek’s Insight 2009 user conference last May , the host software vendor did a notable thing. Namely, besides merely putting on an all-too-common multi-day conference chock full of product announcements, functional breakout sessions, and industry  best-practice  discussions, Deltek decided to fill a market need by convening a separate “track” that was dedicated to navigating the maze of  the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) , a.k.a. the Read More

I recently met with AXIS and Cimnet (parts of Consona) and have vicariously learned that the staff at both places have been with the company an average of 16 years, plus, the founder of Cimnet is still there, now as a managing director of the division. Therefore, Consona is today an enterprise-class application software and services provider for both small-to-medium enterprises (SME) and Global 2000 businesses. The customer size and industry depend on the solutions from Read More
Pricing Management in a Down Economy -- Part 2

i part 8  many pricing vendors mentioned in Part 1 claim that business remains great for them (some continue to grow at over 60 percent year-over-year).  One vendor recently (incognito) said that the economy hasn’t hurt its business yet, but it would be a stretch to say it’s helping. A recent Business Week article entitled Five Don'ts for Marketing in Tough Times might also provide a ray of hope for pricing management solutions. The jury is still out on whether the recently announced Oracle Deal Management Read More

“Act Vertical” vs. “Go Extinct” Retailers - Part 3
Part 1 of this blog series set the historical background for supply chain management (SCM) evolution and presented the advantages and shortcomings of vertical

i part 8  As a Starbucks addict, I can vouch for the latter case. All of the above practices increase the likelihood of delivering the right product to the right place at the right time, and at the right cost (and price). Basically every retailer will have to act vertical over the next few years to react quickly to more-demanding consumers whose tastes are changing faster than ever. The Seven Magic Core Competencies So how were the abovementioned act-vertical retailers able to create and execute distinctive and Read More
The (NA)Vision of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 - Part 3
Part 1 and Part 2 of this blog series went through the five previous generations of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV (formerly Navision) product. In late 2008, at the

i part 8  partners at related events, I have recently talked to a couple of Dynamics NAV partners who are less than thrilled with an eventual discontinuation of C/SIDE database.  Also, I did think the recent influx of former Navision people to Microsoft Dynamics’ free and open source (FOSS) foe OpenBravo was a pretty interesting (if not indicative) development too. Needless to say, any injudicious move by Microsoft towards the large NAV install base on C/SIDE database would be a “gift that keeps on giving” Read More

I am not the only one who has mentioned Manhattan Associates as a potential acquisition target, but  Manhattan’s recent upbeat results  and hefty market capitalization might be out of JDA’s reach for the time being. Moreover, a  demand signal repository (DSR)  is instrumental to make this entire value chain collaboration happen. However, DSR is an emerging and evolving solution likely to be bought only by  category captains  (and perhaps the number two company in each Read More

This performance visibility platform is replete with best practices and workflows on a pre-built technology layer. What Corefino's founder (a seasoned ex-CFO) has done is to take a car manufacturing style (an assembly line or cell) approach.
