In the 10 Steps to Select Supply Chain Planning Technology Effectively, Gartner states "When choosing a supply chain planning technology, it is important to look at both current and future needs, because you would ideally use this technology for a number of years.

Before starting a technology selection, the first action is to ensure that there is clarity around the overall business strategies, supply chain planning maturities and technology landscapes (see Figure 2)." 2
