“Every customer and prospect I talk with immediately sees huge value in the FusionOps solution.”
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
FusionOps, a leading provider of self-service, best-practice, pre-built analytics for the supply chain, a segment of the business intelligence market, announced today that Gary Meyers has been brought in to lead the company as it prepares for its next stage of rapid growth. FusionOps also announced new high-profile customers for its cloud-based SaaS offering, including business users and analysts at Tesla Motors, KLA-Tencor, Kimball Electronics Group, and Albéa Group.
Meyers was formerly president and CEO of Synplicity, Inc, a public software company serving the electronic design market, prior to its acquisition by Synopsys in 2008. Meyers was VP/GM at Synopsys, Inc. for two years and currently serves on the board of directors of Exar, Inc. and Oasys Design Systems. “We believe now is the time to take the company to its next level of success and believe that Gary’s entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen will be the catalyst for our future success,” cited Prabhu Goel, Chairman of the Board of FusionOps. “Gary’s demonstrated expertise in technology, sales, marketing, and growing software companies, along with his leadership qualities, caught our attention,” continued Goel, “and his proven track record over the past 26 years gives us great confidence in his ability to help us realize the full potential of our company.”
“Every customer and prospect I talk with immediately sees huge value in the FusionOps solution,” said Meyers. “There is great pent-up demand for easy, self-service access to analytics in the supply chain and FusionOps is in the right place at the right time. We are poised for dramatic growth, as there really isn’t anything like what we provide in the market today.”
"FusionOps is taking advantage of the SaaS model for BI to focus on rapid delivery of ready-to-use BI applications, that offer real-time analytics, and end-user ease of implementation, access and use…FusionOps is part of an overall trend Gartner is seeing in treating business users as direct consumers of IT tools and in messaging that emphasizes the ability to get work done without the complexity of IT," writes Jamie Popkin, Gartner analyst.
Forrester Research, Inc.’s Boris Evelson agrees that traditional BI approaches and technologies lead to a constant backlog of BI requests. In his June 12, 2012 Forrester Blog for Application Development & Delivery Professionals, “Evaluating Self-Service BI,” Evelson wrote, “BI requirements change faster than an IT-centric support model can keep up…Business executives, managers and individual contributors …want their BI business requirements addressed according to their, not IT's, schedule …We maintain that in an ideal BI environment, 80% of all BI requirements should be carried out by the business users themselves.”
The FusionOps Advantage
FusionOps’ out-of-the-box, pre-tested dashboards and reports put the power of advanced analytics, including easy-to-use, self-service “fine tuning,” directly into the hands of supply chain and operations managers and analysts, without burdening their IT department. Leveraging its deep expertise in SAP and supply chain product development, FusionOps’ patented solution delivers, in just one day, hundreds of “best practice” dashboards and reports for SAP supply chain installations, using automated extraction and mapping of complex SAP tables. Pre-built analytics are available in such areas as procurement, order fulfillment, inventory, production planning, supplier performance, and more. “I immediately understood the value of best practice pre-built analytics, having struggled with getting the visibility I needed into my own supply chain in my prior operating positions,” Meyers said. “Business users want answers, not tools, high infrastructure costs, and long delays. I am very excited about the massive opportunity in front of us and am proud to be working with such a talented and dedicated team.”
The power of the FusionOps solution is now being realized by leading companies across various industries, all of which identified a need for greater visibility into their operations. As customers of FusionOps, industry leaders such as Tesla Motors, KLA-Tencor, Kimball Electronics, and Albéa Group are experiencing the value of pre-built supply chain analytics.
“FusionOps was the perfect solution for Kimball Electronics,” said Gwenda Waldron, Project Manager. “We were able to implement the dashboard with less than 1 hour of Kimball IT assistance. Users are able to drill down to the details and even pass notes along to other users about the metrics. We are able to customize the content and output in order to ensure high usage by multiple levels of users."
