Ariba, i2 to end online marketplace alliance

Ariba is to end its collaboration with i2 Technologies because it does not see a viable future for online marketplaces, Ariba executives announced last week.

Instead, the software vendor plans to focus on procurement, supply chain management and collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment; areas in which it competes with Dallas-based i2. Ariba is active in an alliance that creates online marketplaces with i2 and IBM and said it will continue to support existing exchanges.
