Manhattan Associates’ Distribution and Transportation Solutions Ready-To-Run On IBM Virtualization Technology

  • 10 November, 2009 16:18

<p>The growing use of server virtualization technology has enabled companies to reduce costs and overhead while optimising computing resources throughout the enterprise. Though the technology creates deployment flexibility, it can also result in performance issues if high-yield solutions running on the server are not tested for a virtualized environment. To support this technology, Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ: MANH) has announced that its Warehouse Management (WMS) and Transportation, Planning and Execution (TP&amp;E) solutions are tested and ready-to-run on the IBM AIX 6.1 operating system, featuring PowerVM virtualization technology.</p>
<p>IBM PowerVM technology provides industrial strength virtualization for AIX operating systems on IBM Power Systems. PowerVM virtualizes processor and I/O resources for client partitions, enabling increased asset utilisation, enhanced infrastructure flexibility and reduced costs. Virtualization technology allows organisations to consolidate multiple operating systems and software stacks on a single platform, and allocate the platform to meet specific business and application requirements in a more dynamic fashion.</p>
<p>“Virtualization of our Manhattan Associates solutions on IBM Power Systems technology has enabled us to respond rapidly to new business requirements and to create test and development environments at no incremental cost in terms of hardware or power consumption” said David Markwell, vice president, information technology for Loblaw Companies Limited, a Manhattan WMS customer.</p>
<p>Manhattan Associates' WMS, the centerpiece of Manhattan Associates' Distribution Management product suite, is designed for optimal collaboration and communication with an extensive network of suppliers and partners. TP&amp;E, a solution within in the Manhattan Transportation Lifecycle Management suite, provides customers advanced logistics capabilities with end-to-end visibility into all shipping activities.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
