Analyst house Gartner Inc., has released its newest vendor reporting highlighting five emerging solution providers that offer C-suite executives innovative alternatives in the supply chain and Artificial Intelligence (AI) space. Its Cool Vendors in Artificial Intelligence Across the Supply Chain report focuses on organizations that offer some disruptive capability and/or opportunity. Gartner says that cool vendors “exist across all major areas of technology and innovation” and CIOs that pay close attention to these trends can avoid the “disadvantage in trying to keep up.”
As supply chain management (SCM) happens to be an extremely popular integration tool within Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, the editors here at Solutions Review thought it would be helpful to provide an inside look at the providers in Gartner’s Cool Vendors.
With that being said, we’ve read the full report, available here, and want to take the opportunity to expand upon the introduction Gartner has given to these providers. We believe our unique view of the marketplace can help you to better understand how these tools will fit into the overarching landscape as they mature and go forth.
