Discrete advisory: Endeca debuts engineering and sourcing solutions


Endeca 's Design for Supply solution gives design engineers 360-degree visibility into integrated part and supplier information to select parts that align with sourcing, compliance and other corporate objectives. A Spend Analysis solution provides sourcing professionals with real-time access and analysis of disparate sourcing, parts and supplier information to identify opportunities for reducing direct materials spend, consolidating suppliers and negotiating preferred contracts.
Both product introductions are part of a focused effort by Endeca to bring new information visibility solutions to aerospace & defense, automotive, high-tech and industrial manufacturers. And both solutions reportedly solve long-standing challenges not addressed by today's product life-cycle management, spend management, supply chain management, and business intelligence applications.
Each solution offers a customizable, Web-based user experience that integrates Endeca's search, business intelligence, and Guided Navigation and Guided Summarization capabilities., Engineers and sourcing professionals can quickly browse, evaluate, and drill into product and supplier data using dozens or even hundreds of attributes and criteria.
Powered by Endeca's MDEX Engine technology, the solutions enable aggregation, querying and analysis of data from product life-cycle managment (PLM) solutions (Agile PLM from Oracle, MatrixOne/Dassault, Siemens/UGS TeamCenter, PTC Windchill); ERP (SAP, Oracle's JD Edwards), spend management (Ariba, Emptoris); supplier relationship management (i2/JDA, Manugistics) product catalogs; and other business-critical data systems.
