DALLAS, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- One Network Enterprises (www.onenetwork.com), a global provider of secure, multi-party, SaaS and PaaS cloud networks, today announced that Nucleus Research, a global provider of investigative, case-based technology research and advisory services, has positioned the Company as the leader in its Control Tower Value Matrix 2016 report. Positioned "furthest" among all thirteen vendors evaluated in the matrix, One Network's Real Time Value Network™ (RTVN) was recognized as a leader for creating a multi-party network model that enables partners to share information, evaluate integrated business planning scenarios, transact business, collaborate and optimize performance on the same solution in real-time.
The Value Matrix is based on functionality and usability, the two core measures that Nucleus has found to indicate an application's ability to deliver initial ROI and, ultimately, maximum value over time. According to Seth Lippincott, lead analyst of the report, "Visibility of one's own operations is insufficient. Organizations need to be able to aggregate and analyze data from multiple outside streams, so they can anticipate possible supply disruptions and effectively respond and execute. One Network links customers together thus delivering a network-effect that increases visibility and helps organizations make better decisions."
"Control towers are becoming increasingly more strategic as these information hubs afford visibility on orders, inventory, and shipments by linking data from other applications into one console to provide a picture of what's taking place in the supply chain," Mr. Lippincott continued. "One Network's Real Time Value Network is unmatched among other control tower solutions, as it eliminates latency issues for users and connects profits and loss (P&L) projections to real execution data. One Network also deploys learning agents that make automatic course corrections based on optimized planning during execution so customers can avoid costly mishaps and ensure ongoing customer satisfaction."
As one of the first commercial control tower solutions, One Networks marries planning and execution applications into one console to provide end-to-end supply chain visibility for course correction; thereby, eliminating the traditional divide between planning and execution. The RTVN enables visibility and data to flow across the entire value chain of business partners – in real-time, which brings supply chain visibility and performance to an entirely new level.
"One Network was founded on the premise that businesses need a network platform to collaborate and execute together to serve the end customer," said Greg Brady, CEO of One Network. "It is not just about fancy dashboards and decision support. Control towers should be decision making solutions that control execution across business partners and orchestrate collaborative resolution on an exception basis. With our latest innovations such as Command and Control Monitoring for executive roles and Optimized Execution workbenches for operational roles, we continue to deliver on this vision."
There is nothing magic about the Nucleus Research Value Matrix, which categorizes vendors according to usability and functionality. This determines which solutions provide the most value to organizations, helping with technology and business decisions. Nucleus issues the Value Matrix twice a year.
