Over breakfast last week, I had the chance to speak with Dr. Gabriel Bitran. Dr. Bitran is a recognized expert in two areas, 1) Logistics and 2)Pricing. A lot of our conversation was around the area of pricing management in retail. He was keenly aware of what's going in industry with Oracle and SAP acquiring companies like Profitlogic and Retek. In his estimation, there's still plenty of room for improvement for CIO's and CEO's of retailers to implement real time pricing management in stores as well as to control supply costs. This area is far from dead. He might be good advisor for companies like Brickstream as well as startups like Infolenz.
