New ARC Advisory Group research on the supply chain planning market reveals that in the supply chain planning realm, the branch of artificial intelligence known as machine learning is where most of the activity is. Machine learning is the battlefield in the “arms race” between software vendors to achieve differentiation.
“Customers and potential customers are interested in supply chain planning (SCP) suppliers’ product development plans for embedding artificial intelligence and machine learning into their solutions. SCP companies have interesting product development going on in these areas, but the progress can be characterized as incremental rather than revolutionary,” according to Steve Banker, VP Supply Chain Services at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Supply Chain Planning Global Market Research report.
