Free July 29 Webinar to Discuss How S&OP Reduces Complexity, Creates Value

PLEASANTON, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 19, 2005 --


Enterasys Networks is a $360 million provider of Secure Networks™, serving 25,000 customers globally in financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, education, and government. Steelwedge, Inc., is the leading innovator in the emerging field of Enterprise Planning and Performance Management software. Steelwedge helps manufacturers create, validate, and synchronize functional plans, actively align them with business and financial targets, and gain visibility and control over enterprise performance.


Seema Phull, Director, Process and Technology at Enterasys Networks, will discuss the Enterasys deployment of Collaborative Demand Planning and Forecasting (CDFP) and Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) solutions to control costs and achieve profitability. She will share insights and key learning that will be relevant to anyone embarking on such initiatives within their companies.


Enterprise planning and performance management is a vital element of the corporate agenda. Successful deployment of corporate systems such as ERP and SCM still depends on high quality planning data. As a result, even companies that have invested heavily in ERP systems struggle with business agility, planning accuracy, and delivery speed. And companies that have moved to outsourced production models are doing business in ways not envisioned when ERP systems were originally developed. The results can be missed revenue targets, excessive and/or inadequate inventory levels, reduced flexibility, and reduced customer satisfaction.In 2004, Enterasys staged a comeback from the downturn of 2000 with a new secure networks strategy, updated product portfolio, and streamlined planning. Enterasys recognized the need to make its planning processes more responsive in order to improve profitability and recently selected the Steelwedge Enterprise Planning and Performance Management (EPPM) suite for this initiative.
