    AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–E2open,
    the one place in the cloud to run your supply chain, announced the
    winners of the 2018 E2opennovation contest. Finalized after the end of
    the company’s fiscal year, this annual competition gives E2open
    employees the opportunity to develop new products and ideas to support
    E2open clients, the company or its employees. A total of 182 employees
    formed 52 teams to enter the contest, making it the largest in the
    competition’s three-year history. In addition to monetary rewards, the
    winning submissions are considered for implementation into E2open’s
    portfolio of applications and network solutions, adding value to
    customers and the business.

    Two teams share the top winner’s spot. Both teams focused on artificial
    intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) for anomaly detection. One
    winning team, called Augmented Intelligence, applied ML to improve
    demand forecast accuracy by reducing the error in user planning
    overrides. This entry also provides more dynamic lead times for better
    planning outcomes across multiple tiers of a supply chain. The other top
    winner, Team Satiates, applied ML to help identify unusual channel data
    submissions and used ML classification techniques to help customers
    expand their channel management options.

    The team in the second winner’s spot is Concept Squad. This team
    developed a real-time, comprehensive visibility solution demonstrating
    E2open’s strength in combining network and applications to provide
    visibility and traceability across the end-to-end supply chain. This
    solution allows E2open to extend visibility into networks outside the
    current portfolio.

    “Congratulations to each of our winners, the runners-up and everyone who
    participated in the competition,” said Michael Farlekas, president and
    chief executive officer of E2open. “We know a lot of time and effort
    goes into these innovative submissions and presentations, and we can’t
    thank our staff enough for the hard work and creativity. We look forward
    to putting these new ideas into action.”
