PLEASANTON, CA – June 29, 2016 – Steelwedge, the leading provider of cloud-based Integrated Business Planning solutions and services that inform better decision-making for global organizations, today announced that Lisa Aleman has joined the organization as a Senior Supply Chain Strategist. Lisa joins having led global operations for six years at Radisys, a leading telecommunications and networking provider. While at Radisys, Aleman was a key customer advisor on Integrated Business Planning strategies and market requirements as Steelwedge was developing its PlanStreamingTM planning platform in 2015, and its Collaborative Supply Planning and Revenue-FirstTM Response Management solutions, both released in the first half of 2016.
“Lisa was instrumental to Steelwedge throughout her time at Radisys, helping to guide our planning solutions and roadmap based on market dynamics,” said Steelwedge CEO Pervinder Johar. “We’re thrilled to have her join the team to help us in our mission to continuously evolve our solutions with an ‘outside-in’ perspective, so that our customers can leverage Integrated Business Planning to their advantage.”
Aleman discussed PlanStreaming in “Radisys Updates Its Demand Planning,” published in the latest issue of SupplyChainBrain:
“PlanStreaming helps Radisys cover the whole gamut of supply chain, starting with forecasting and moving all the way through the chain – from how the supply and demand elements are put together, to how the prioritization scheme is racked and stacked, to how value is delivered to customers,” said Aleman.
Aleman served as Senior Director of Global Operations at Radisys. Previously, she was the Director of Global Operations for Planar and Director of Global Planning at On Semiconductor, an organization she served for 27 years.
“Steelwedge is the only organization I would have considered joining,” said Aleman. “The entire team, from the executives to product management to R&D, is completely focused on innovation and on finding creative solutions for planning challenges.”
