The Forrester Wave™: Warehouse Management Systems, Q1 2006

HighJump, Manhattan Associates, And RedPrairie Lead In Our Product Evaluation

January 24, 2006


Why Read This Report

To assess the state of the warehouse management systems (WMS) market and see how the vendors stack up against each other, Forrester evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of top WMS vendors across 191 criteria. With the impact of service-based architecture, RFID, more integrated supply chain capabilities, and multichannel fulfillment on both retailers and manufacturers, WMS solutions have had a lot to assimilate in a relatively short amount of time. How well have vendors responded to these trends? Best-of-breeds still dominate the category, with Manhattan Associates at the top of the list, but enterprise vendor SAP has made a concerted effort to close the gap. Companies evaluating WMS solutions need to determine how strongly they value unique aspects of their existing processes when selecting a WMS provider. Included in this report is an interactive vendor comparison tool that provides detailed product evaluations and customizable rankings.
