In preparing the 2018 edition of the IO Value Matrix, Nucleus found that some vendors are looking beyond the mathematics and modeling that calculate the optimal inventory and focusing on delivering additional value with flexibility and automation. Leading vendors have customers that are automating parts of their inventory optimization efforts, leaving their software to set and manage stocking levels.
