Teradata Acquires SeeCommerce SeeChain Application

Originally published February 23, 2006

Teradata, a division of NCR Corp. recently announced the enhancement of its demand and supply chain portfolio with the acquisition of the SeeChain application from SeeCommerce.

According to Lora Cecere, Research Director at analyst firm AMR research, "The drive for supply chain analytics comes from the need to measure, monitor, and alert to synchronize demand, control costs, and better manage networks. New capabilities in dashboards and scorecards and the heightened business requirements for measurements are fueling these investments."

AMR Research also notes that the three top-rated investments in this arena are supply chain visibility and event management; demand forecasting; and data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics.

"The Teradata portfolio provides analytics for demand and supply synchronization, forecasting and replenishment, and operational performance improvement on a data warehouse platform," said Bob Fair, CMO for Teradata. "The SeeChain application complements the capabilities of the Teradata Demand Chain Management and Teradata Supply Chain Intelligence applications by providing visibility to item-/location-level detail and also the ability to monitor, measure, manage and analyze supply chain operations and take corrective action on exceptions. Together, our enhanced portfolio ensures that our customers will have the integrated visibility and traceability they require for more efficient and effective supply chain management."

Teradata plans to provide ongoing support to existing SeeChain customers and expects that the hiring of SeeCommerce sales, development and support personnel will ensure a seamless transition.
