News Facts

  • Gartner, Inc. has named Oracle as a Leader in its recent "Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning (SCP) for Process Automation, 2010." (1)
  • Gartner's Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
  • According to Gartner, Leaders "display a strong understanding of SCP for process automation, both in terms of functional breadth, relevant functional depth and supporting service and support for organizations looking for a strong planning foundation. These leaders can point to a range of broad implementations, with several at a global level, and strong customer experiences that illustrate the value they bring to an SCP deployment project. They can articulate a strong vision for the ongoing support of process automation requirements as well as display how they would support a user with the need to add select pieces of process innovation as they become more mainstream over time."
  • Oracle delivers SCP capabilities through best-in-class Value Chain Planning applications that help companies use current and actionable data to optimize operations, profitably balance supply and demand, manage supply chain risks and increase supply chain responsiveness.
