Finally, Something New in Supply Chain

Elementum, the world's firs­­­t mobile platform for end-to-end supply chain management, emerges from stealth mode with more than $60M in funding and major customers.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The distance between innovation and execution is about to get a whole lot shorter.

SUPPLY CHAIN MADE SIMPLE.

Today, Silicon Valley-based startup Elementum put its stake in the ground with a bold promise: to bring the world's supply chain data into the palm of your hand. With $44M in Series B funding from Lightspeed Venture Partners and Flextronics (NASDAQ:FLEX), along with brand name customers like Dyson, the company is poised to deliver. And it couldn't have come at a better time. With shorter product lifecycles and instant consumer feedback becoming the new norm, companies need to respond to changes faster than ever. How? With real-time visibility into their supply chain using beautiful, bite-sized apps for managing risk, monitoring KPIs, and tracking shipments—all in the cloud at one simple price.

"Supply chain management will never be the same—and that's a good thing."

- Nader Mikhail, CEO of Elementum

A MAN ON A MISSION.

Drawing upon his experience in supply chain and cloud computing, Nader Mikhail saw an opportunity for a simple solution to address the complex issues facing today's supply chains. The scope? A global economy worth over $70 trillion, of which a third is product. And with backing from one of the largest supply chains in the world, Elementum is the only pre-integrated mobile solution in the market. All customers have to do is download an app, log in, and go.

"If your supply chain is not real-time, mobile, and connected—I don't know how you'll run your supply chain in 5 years."

- Mike McNamara, CEO of Flextronics

IT LOOKS AS GOOD AS IT WORKS.

Wrapped in a user experience that's akin to the most popular apps today, Elementum offers simple and intuitive mobile software that you can actually use and understand. See exactly where every part, component, and finished good is manufactured, supplied, and distributed all over the world. It's really that simple. And under the hood lies a platform built from the ground-up using the latest in massively scalable big data technologies—like flexible schema databases, REST-based APIs, and Hadoop.  

"Our quest at Dyson is to design a supply chain as efficient, reliable, and innovative as the products we deliver to our customers. We believe the connectivity, flexibility, and visibility Elementum can provide will help us greatly in fulfilling these objectives."

- Jim Rowan, COO of Dyson

EXECUTION AT THE SPEED OF INNOVATION.

We live in a world where software responds to consumer feedback and demand in almost instantaneous fashion. Now imagine one where any physical product can have that same reaction. Innovation would no longer be held hostage to the complex and pocket-draining process of today's supply chain systems. Finally, there's a technology that can bring speed and agility at a fraction of the cost. And it's all thanks to supply chain made simple.

Some people worry that OpenStack is more flash then substance; however, for many customers this could not be farther from the truth. No other technology equalizes the playing field between vendors while giving your internal teams better access than ever to infrastructure when they need it.

Tricky charts and visually deceptive graphs often make a case for the impact IT performance has on business. The debate isn't around the obvious; of course, IT performance metrics like website load time influence business metrics such as conversions and revenue. Rather, this presentation will explore various data analysis concepts to understand how, and how not to, assert such correlations. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Sys...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his general session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore...

The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity?

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
