Pleasanton, Cal., Sept. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PLEASANTON, Ca. – Sept. 16, 2016 – Steelwedge, the leading provider of cloud-based planning solutions and services that help global organizations make smarter decisions faster, today announced that Senior Supply Chain Strategist Lisa Aleman will speak at the 2016 Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, held in London next week. Aleman will share “Real-time Plan Readiness and Response Across the Enterprise” on Monday, Sept. 19 at 11:30 AM at the Park Plaza Westminster Hotel.
“Old conventions can't serve new conditions," says Aleman. “Businesses increasingly realize that capturing value in today’s changing world requires a new planning approach--solutions that move seamlessly, collaboratively and continuously in-time with that change.”
Lisa joined the Steelwedge organization in June, having led global operations for six years at Radisys, a leading telecommunications and networking provider. While at Radisys, Aleman was a key customer advisor on Integrated Business Planning strategies and market requirements as Steelwedge was developing its PlanStreaming™ planning platform in 2015, and its Collaborative Supply Planning and Revenue-First™ Response Management solutions, both released in the first half of 2016.
The Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, held Sept. 19-20, is the world’s most important gathering of supply chain leaders. A two-part, bimodal supply chain is the new reality for organizations. This marriage of two distinct approaches delivers day-in, day-out reliability and game-changing innovation at the same time.
Gartner categorized Steelwedge as a leader in its April 2015 Magic Quadrant for Sales & Operations Planning System of Differentiation, and a Visionary in its January 2016 Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning System of Record.
