AT&T announced Thursday that it named Thomas Horton as the company's new chief financial officer. Horton replaces Charles Noski, who was named vice chairman of AT&T last February. Noski said last May that he would leave the company once the sale of its AT&T Broadband cable unit to Comcast is complete. AT&T expects to close the deal by the end of the year. Horton most recently served as chief financial officer of AMR, the parent company of American Airlines. He joined AMR in 1985 as a financial analyst and has held numerous positions in the finance department as well as being responsible for the general management of the airline's European operations from 1998 to 2000.
Software maker i2 Technologies will release by July an application that alerts companies to unforeseen inventory and delivery problems, the company said Tuesday. The new software, called i2 Inventory Visibility and Exception Management, gathers and analyzes data from a variety of software systems about incoming orders and inventory levels in factories, warehouses, distribution centers, and in-transit to customers and from suppliers. If something out of the ordinary occurs, such as a truck breaking down in-route to a customer, the software alerts managers to the problem and prompts some kind of action, such as an overnight shipment to avoid a delay. The i2 software can be programmed to e-mail, page or send wireless text messages to inventory managers and their suppliers in urgent situations. AMR Research estimates the market for real-time inventory tracking could grow to as large as $1 billion, as companies seek to improve customer service and avoid inventory blunders that can lead to multimillion dollar write-offs.
