I2 Furthers Internet Business Strategy

Market leader i2 Technologies Inc. has emerged relatively unscathed from this year's turbulence in the supply-chain management software arena. Now, i2 is expanding into new areas while positioning its core products as key to the development of Internet business strategies.

At its user conference in Las Vegas on Oct. 13, i2 is expected to provide details of an E-commerce software suite for order-taking, managing Web-site content, and providing price quotes, due to ship by year's end. It will also introduce an online marketplace that will be powered by i2's supply-chain planning and collaboration suite, and will be open to any company that wants to purchase business supplies. The company says it will also disclose its first six suppliers for the marketplace at the conference. Says i2 CEO Sanjiv Sidhu, "This is our next step. We want to be a provider of intelligent E-business systems."

At its conference, i2 will also showcase Sun Microsystems as the first customer of its recently introduced Internet Fulfillment Server, which lets companies provide suppliers with direct access to customer orders placed over the Web to expedite fulfillment. Sun is also using the new i2 Exchange Services, a software and services bundle that lets companies collaborate with business partners in private online trading communities.

AMR Research says i2 has captured the largest chunk of the fragmented $3.9 billion supply-chain management market, with a projected 13% share this year. AMR also predicts that this market will mushroom to $18.6 billion in 2003, as supply- chain management finds new relevance in E-business.
