Are you aware of any customized data warehousing solution for strategic/centralized sourcing? I am actually working on a strategic sourcing data warehousing solution called e-Source. It's presently in i2 Technologies's SRM (Supplier Relationship Management) suite of products. I wanted to know if there were any other data warehousing solutions catering to this segment. Lots of Fortune 500 companies use it, ranging from Kraft to Honeywell.
Webango's e-source product suite provides a data analysis function. Current clients are Cisco Systems and Eastman Chemical Company: http://www.webango.com/eSolutions/sourceselect.htm
