Annual contest for E2open employees recognizes creative and innovative solutions and ideas that benefit customers, the company or employees
AUSTIN, Texas — April 30, 2019 — E2open, the one place in the cloud to run your supply chain, announced the winners of the 2018 E2opennovation contest. Finalized after the end of the company’s fiscal year, this annual competition gives E2open employees the opportunity to develop new products and ideas to support E2open clients, the company or its employees. A total of 182 employees formed 52 teams to enter the contest, making it the largest in the competition’s three-year history. In addition to monetary rewards, the winning submissions are considered for implementation into E2open’s portfolio of applications and network solutions, adding value to customers and the business.
Two teams share the top winner’s spot. Both teams focused on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) for anomaly detection. One winning team, called Augmented Intelligence, applied ML to improve demand forecast accuracy by reducing the error in user planning overrides. This entry also provides more dynamic lead times for better planning outcomes across multiple tiers of a supply chain. The other top winner, Team Satiates, applied ML to help identify unusual channel data submissions and used ML classification techniques to help customers expand their channel management options.
The team in the second winner’s spot is Concept Squad. This team developed a real-time, comprehensive visibility solution demonstrating E2open’s strength in combining network and applications to provide visibility and traceability across the end-to-end supply chain. This solution allows E2open to extend visibility into networks outside the current portfolio.
“Congratulations to each of our winners, the runners-up and everyone who participated in the competition,” said Michael Farlekas, president and chief executive officer of E2open. “We know a lot of time and effort goes into these innovative submissions and presentations, and we can’t thank our staff enough for the hard work and creativity. We look forward to putting these new ideas into action.”
