A Leader in the Control Tower Value Matrix
E2open continues as a Leader in the Nucleus Research 2018 Control Tower Value Matrix, having made a series of acquisitions to extend its capabilities in downstream execution.
Geared toward global enterprise customers with extended value chains, E2open brings together its different planning and execution solutions with a consistent user interface.
Over the last few years, E2open has made a series of acquisitions designed to extend its capabilities beyond its beginnings in planning.
Of late, downstream logistics has been the focus, with E2open purchasing the transportation management vendor, Cloud Logistics, and ocean shipping vendor, INTTRA (Nucleus Research, s166 – E2open expands downstream, October 2018).
Consolidated under its Harmony user interface, E2open is looking to offer visibility from end-to-end as well across trading partners outside the enterprise.
E2open has been investing in capabilities that will allow customers to perform root cause analysis on errors.
The vendor is also investing in delivering an activity stream that will integrate any unstructured activity that connects to a business process.
The vendor seeks to enable the convergence of supply chain management between the external ecosystems that surround an enterprise with the planning and execution systems that E2open provides.
With the vendor still in acquisition mode, customers should expect E2open to continue to fill out their functional needs.
