“We are honored to be named a Leader in supply chain planning (SCP) by Gartner,” said Michael Farlekas, president and chief executive officer of e2open. “Our strategy to bring together all aspects of planning and execution on a single platform is designed to help clients at any stage of their journey – to both meet immediate objectives and grow with them as business needs evolve. Building agility and resiliency into supply chains requires a new type of boundaryless planning that fundamentally differs from traditional approaches because it is driven by data beyond the enterprise, including multiple tiers of upstream suppliers, downstream channel partners and logistics providers. As the only vendor with a multi-enterprise network to connect all parties and access this data in a scalable and economically feasible way, we believe e2open is uniquely positioned to deliver the advanced planning capabilities required to enable digital transformation.”

“Brand owners have continued to experience the shift from a more traditional manufacturing role to being an orchestrator of complex global supply chains, leveraging outsourced production, logistics and distribution partners,” said Pawan Joshi, executive vice president of product management and strategy for e2open. “Planning is a critical part of this orchestration and one where e2open is recognized as a leader. What makes our planning more dynamic and powerful is access to data across the end-to-end supply chain, along with the ability to collaborate with all ecosystem partners to ensure execution, monitor performance for deviations to the plan and proactively take corrective actions. Our clients leverage e2open’s operating platform powered by a network, a full suite of supply chain management applications, proven AI and collaboration to better orchestrate their end-to-end supply chain. It is rewarding to us to see our unique network-based approach being recognized by Gartner.”

In addition to this recognition in the Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning Solutions, e2open is also named as a supply chain planning leader by IDC in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Overall Supply Chain Planning 2019-2020 Vendor Assessment and Nucleus Research in its Supply Chain Planning Technology Value Matrix 2020.
