Inspirage Listed as a Representative Vendor by Gartner

BELLEVUE, WA – Inspirage has been listed as a representative vendor for Supply Chain Planning System Integration, in the research released in August by Gartner: “Market Guide for the Supply Chain Planning System Integrator Market1,” by Research Analyst Amber Salley. According to the report, When evaluating SCP SIs, you should assess to what extent they focus on the segment most important to you — software solution, geographic presence or industry.

In her research, Salley notes regarding software solution, “typically, SIs are able to support multiple software vendor tools, but no SI has built a competency to support all SCP software offerings. SIs are increasingly entering into strategic partnerships with vendors. Within these partnerships, SIs collaborate with software vendors on next-generation supply chain planning solutions.” Inspirage is an Oracle Platinum Partner that has earned the new Oracle Cloud Select Partner designation. They have also been recognized by Oracle Corporation with numerous awards, including recent Specialized Partner of the Year awards for Asia Pacific and North American regions.

As noted in the report about geographic presence, System Integrators may have experience implementing and supporting software throughout all geographic regions, but their supply chain planning software implementation and support in a large geographic footprint may be limited. Consider this when deploying a software solution across multiple countries and regions. Large SI firms will likely have a large global footprint while boutique firms have a smaller geographic focus.

Salley writes regarding industry, “Industries have different use cases for SCP technologies. SCP software vendors design solutions that can be used across multiple industries and manufacturing styles, but different modules and process designs are of greater benefit to some industries than others. SIs that have deep expertise in an industry are more aware of what customization and configuration of software is most beneficial for each industry.” With our deep expertise across many modalities Inspirage is attentive of what customization and configuration of software is most advantageous for each industry and has a strong primary focus as a System Integrator by the following Industries: Consumer Products, Distributors/Wholesalers, High Tech, Industrial Discrete, and Life Sciences.

Every year Gartner lists vendors with intention to provide more understanding of the market and its offerings. Inspirage customers have consistently ranked in the Gartner Supply Chain Top 252. Thirteen of our customers have appeared on the list over the past the past three years, 7 of which have made the list three years in a row, 3 appearing twice and an additional 3 customers who joined its ranks for the first time this year.3
