Turning data in action

Snowflake (NYSE: SNOW) "data warehouse-as-a-service” got a lot of hype, and a huge stock valuation.  Now warehouse management systems (WMS) has its own data-warehouse-as-a-service offerings.  AutoScheduler.AI is partnering with Rebus by Longbow.  Rebus provides real-time data from the WMS and AutoScheduler uses that data to sequence activities in a way that optimizes operations.  Rebus + AutoScheduler – 1+1 = 3

  • The surprise acquisition of BlueYonder by Panasonic at a price of more than six-times sales revenue is a head scratcher 
  • Purchasing managers index shows “input” prices rising fast
  • Truckload spot pricing hit a new record high according to DAT
