About us

Imagine the kind of sense and response required if you are trying to fly fast through woods. You need to make sure you are going in the right direction, through optimal and feasible route, and don’t bump into the tree right in front of you. In an increasingly dynamic business environment, to run fast, a strong sense and response is required across business plans, operational plans and execution, across different business functions and partners. Currently, in a typical organization, ERP systems have transactions and orders, BI systems have past data; and future plans, practically, are in disjointed excels with business planners, which hampers the speed and efficiency of the business.

Hemant Hemant Pariawala (Paria) envisions a business driven SCM system that truly enables sense and response through integrated plan - execution tracking and advanced analytics. Prior to breakWalls, Paria was the chief functional architect for the i2's integrated SCM solutions for manufacturing companies. i2 (now JDA), was the world leader in SCM solutions. Based on more than 22 years of experience in different industries, world-wide, he can work with you from vision to detailed system implementation.
