DemandTec a Bright Star in Constellation’s Price Optimization ShortList™

I’ve known R “Ray” Wang for more than 15 years now, and it’s fair to say I’m a fangirl. As Principal Analyst, Founder and Chairman of Constellation Research, Ray always brings fresh energy and perspective to whatever topics he tackles, whether it’s in his role at Constellation, as co-host of DisrupTV, or his popular blog, “A Software Insider’s Point of View.”

So it’s exciting to see DemandTec featured in Ray’s newly published “Constellation Price Optimization ShortList.” This Q1 2021 list of 10 Solutions to Know (from 40 solutions evaluated) features leading vendors who meet the threshold criteria including supporting multiple pricing models, enabling complex promotion rules, delivering dynamic pricing and creating price optimization models.

While we’re on the topic, I also recommend checking out the DisrupTV episode last fall where Ray, along with his equally dynamic co-host Vala Afshar, have a lively conversation with DemandTec President and General Manager Cheryl Sullivan as they discuss shopper price perceptions, promotion, AI, KVIs and more. Enjoy!
