Gartner recognizes Arkieva as a visionary in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning Solutions.
WILMINGTON, DE – March 22, 2021 – Arkieva, a global leader in Integrated Planning and Scheduling software tools for manufacturing companies, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Arkieva as a “Visionary” in its 2021 Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning Solutions. This is the fourth time that Arkieva has been positioned on the Gartner Supply Chain Planning Solutions.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluation is based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. Gartner defines an S&OP SOD as a software solution that helps to enable a Stage 4 (or possibly higher) maturity S&OP process.
The report evaluated different software vendors on 15 key capabilities and placed Arkieva in the Visionary quadrant.
“When we think about how to make our customers successful, our approach has been to look at multiple horizons. In the short term, solving the biggest business pain points is critical to add value. In the long term, it is about anticipating our customers’ needs and building a roadmap on how to get them there.
That long-term approach to customer success and understanding of how to help customers transform their business from, what Gartner defines as Stage 1 maturity to Stage 5 maturity is what makes Arkieva a visionary.
This recognition from Gartner reflects the strength of the partnerships we have developed with our customers and Arkieva’s commitment to delivering long-term solutions. We are excited to continue to execute on our vision and push the boundaries that help our customers make planning a competitive advantage,” said Dhiran Singh, Executive Vice President at Arkieva.
Digital Supply Chain Planning
At Arkieva, our focus has always been on helping our customers digitize their supply chain planning. As a result, we have focused our priorities on enhancing our demand planning solution with the addition of more advanced analytics, including machine learning. We have also advanced our digital planning through structural enhancement made with our Orbit platform. These improvements have also helped with E2E enterprise planning and E2E multi-enterprise planning, which value the integration of the different planning capabilities across either an enterprise or multi-enterprise supply chain.
All these enhancements have empowered many Arkieva customers to deploy the digital twins of their production facilities allowing for information transfer to the Arkieva Planning systems as-it-happens. We see this as a key competitive advantage that many of our customers are now utilizing. Integrated Planning systems play a big role in this in today’s supply chain technology era. Integrated Planning is a core feature that is embedded in the Arkieva Supply Chain Planning Suite. Our investment focus has been on moving from on-premises to full SaaS with our next-generation platform coming later in 2021.
“Arkieva believes that connecting planning and execution plays a big role in the success of today’s supply chains”, said Sujit Singh. “Our investment focus towards a full SaaS offering will continue for the future and same for our effort to extend the planning solution to support Sales and Operations Execution (S&OE) processes.”
