It’s important to be recognized, in life, and in business.

Gartner Magic Quadrant SCP SOR

That’s why we’re particularly excited to share the news of Gartner’s most recent research, the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning System of Record. In it, Gartner positions Kinaxis as a Leader for the third consecutive time, providing what we think is some pretty weighty validation for our vision of what a supply chain planning platform should be.

Gartner defines an SCP SOR as a planning platform that “enables a company to create, visualize, manage, link, align, collaborate and share its planning data across a supply chain. The platform encompasses demand plan creation, the supply-side response, and detailed operational and tactical-level planning.”1

In the report, which evaluated a total of 20 vendors across a wide range of criteria, Kinaxis placed furthest for completeness of vision in the Leaders quadrant – we believe a strong indicator that Gartner agrees with where we’re heading, and the innovations we’re developing.
