Logility Positioned as a Leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning System of Record


Logility, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain
optimization and advanced retail planning solutions, today announced the
company has been positioned by Gartner as a Leader in the August 2018
Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning System of Record. This Magic
Quadrant examines vendors that provide supply chain planning (SCP)
system-of-record solutions.

Today's fast-paced, global business requires companies to make smarter
decisions faster to delight a more demanding and informed customer,
sense and respond to potential risks and opportunities, and boost
profitable growth. Solutions, such as Logility Voyager Solutions™ help
companies transform their operations through the innovative use of
advanced algorithmic planning, artificial intelligence and machine
learning. Logility delivers a strong foundation to serve the needs of
today's supply chains as well as a platform for future growth and

According to the report, "This Magic Quadrant analyzes the market for
SCP SORs (the foundational planning layer) that support the "integrate"
maturity stage (Stage 3 in Gartner's five-stage maturity model) of
demand and supply planning processes today and in the future. This is an
area that Gartner finds many companies are investing in to provide a
strong foundational planning layer on which to build their more
differentiating and innovating capabilities. Choosing an SCP SOR is a
key decision. Not only must it provide planning integration and
visibility across a supply chain, it also must provide a critical
steppingstone in an SCP technology roadmap that will help enable the
business's future SCP aspirations. To be fully effective, an SCP SOR is
deployed, at a minimum, at the supply chain planning organizational
level, as opposed to SCP key functional capability or geographically. It
is a best practice to separate different solution sets and vendors
within an SCP SOR to prevent fragmenting the end-to-end (E2E) planning
capability too much."

"Supply chains continue to evolve and innovate at an accelerated pace
which requires a supply chain platform that can support both today's
business needs as well as tomorrow's opportunities," said Allan Dow,
president, Logility. "We believe our leadership recognition by Gartner
in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning System of
Record supports our vision for delivering innovative solutions that help
businesses mitigate risk, increase profitability and optimize their
planning processes."
