Eight Consecutive Gartner Magic Quadrant reports! Oracle Named a Leader for Transportation Management Systems

Gartner recently released its 2015 Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems report and once again, Oracle was named as a leader among its peers in the TMS market.

According to Gartner, “A compelling trend in logistics management is a concept that Gartner calls "supply chain execution convergence," which refers to the need for supply chain organizations to better orchestrate and synchronize processes across functional domains.”

Answering to this trend, Oracle continues to expand upon new technologies and platform updates to support the needs of its customers both locally as well as globally.  Our platform supports customers with both basic transportation needs, as well as those with highly-complex logistics requirements.

Gaining a Competitive Advantage with Logistics

Guest author Jon Chorley, Chief Sustainability Officer and Vice President SCM Product Strategy at Oracle shares his perspective on the latest supply chain predictions for 2013.

At its Supply Chain Executive conference last year, Gartner did a great job of summarizing the trends impacting logistics operations - environmental issues, risk and compliance, international flow optimization and supply chain execution convergence – but this is definitely a big, important and constantly changing topic that requires ongoing consideration.

That is why we wanted to share an Aviation Week story by Robert Trebilcock that includes comments by our own VP of applications development Hannes Sandmeier. [Read More]
