Land O’Lakes Selects Terra Technology Multi-Enterprise Demand Sensing

Del

Land O’Lakes, Inc., one of America's premier agribusiness and food companies, has purchased Terra Technology’s Multi-Enterprise Demand Sensing software-as-a-service solution. Land O’Lakes chose Terra after successful pilots demonstrated significant gains in forecast accuracy from modelling customer order patterns and incorporating retailer data into the forecast.

“Terra Multi-Enterprise Demand Sensing delivered the step-change in planning performance Land O’Lakes was looking for,” said Yone Dewberry, Vice President, Supply Chain Planning and Logistics, Land O’Lakes. “Pilot results showed we could use available data across the supply chain, including retailer point of sale, to more efficiently drive our supply chain and reduce forecast error dramatically.”

"We are very excited to welcome Land O’Lakes as a customer,” said Robert F. Byrne, CEO of Terra Technology. “Their use of retailer data to sense demand underscores Land O’Lakes’ commitment of adopting cutting-edge practices to power its business and achieve outcomes that were previously not possible.”

Multi-Enterprise Demand Sensing improves planning performance by synchronizing supply chain decisions with what is happening on the store shelf. This is especially important in volatile markets and for new product introductions where history is a poor indicator of future performance or simply not available. Aligning daily demand predictions with market realities allows manufacturers to better serve customers, reduce inventory and free working capital to invest in new growth opportunities.

Mavenir Announces Virtualized Media Breakout Controller, Bringing 5G Edge Architectures to Legacy Networks17.1.2018 14:00Pressemelding

Mavenir, focused on transforming mobile network economics for Communications Service Providers, today announced its virtualized Media Breakout Controller (vMBC), a single white box routing platform that enables carriers to host virtual Routing, Firewall, and User plane data offload. Today’s networks, whether 3G, 4G or 5G, are under pressure to provide increased bandwidth in support of LTE and its frequency combinations, and reduce latency for network interaction, resulting in a continual need to increase capacity for traffic transported through the core of the network. Multi-Access Edge Computing standardization (MEC) is trying to resolve some of these issues by placing compute functionality at the edge but it is still mostly controlled from the core, based on conventional centralized architectures. The ability to scale network functionality using virtual elements and COTS HW platforms allows network functionality to be deployed at any location. Mavenir’s innovative solution offers the
