A transportation management system (TMS) is mainly used to plan freight movements. TMS helps customers plan and execute transportation across their supply chain. It offers a number of important tools, such as strategic planning and optimization, freight consolidation, and freight audit and payment, which helps to maximize the efficiency and reduce freight costs associated with product shipments. The Global Transportation Management market can be divided into three segments: Planning and Execution Solutions, Fleet Management Solutions, and Niche Solutions, which covers only a part of the entire TMS process. TMS helps in improving communication between shippers and carriers, enabling them to share information in real time.

The analysts forecast the Global Transportation Management market to grow at a CAGR of 6.67 percent over the period 2013-2018.

The Global Transportation Management market is characterized by intense competition, consolidation, rapid technological enhancements, frequent product innovations, and changes in customer requirements. This market is experiencing a significant shift from on-premises software solutions to cloud solutions.

The report, the Global Transportation Management Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the APAC and EMEA regions; it also covers the Global Transportation Management market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

One major trend anticipated in the market is the increase in cloud-based on-demand models which makes the vendor the IT equivalent of a 3PL provider.

According to the report, the growing demand for SaaS-based TMS solutions is one of the major drivers of the Global Transportation Management market. TMS vendors have started providing SaaS models, where an annual subscription fee has to be paid instead of the huge upfront license fees paid in the on-premises model.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges that the market faces is the high cost of deployment, preventing enterprises from adopting TMS software. Also, the TMS software has to be regularly upgraded to incorporate recent advances, increasing the cost of the software.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
