Supply chain management software and services provider i2 Technologies has filed a patent suit against Oracle in the US District Court of Texas alleging infringement of 11 of its patents related to supply chain management and other enterprise software applications.
The company said Oracle has infringed patents related to process planning, managing factory planning systems, computer security, managing applications across multiple domains, intelligent order promising, managing multi-taxonomy environments, value chain management, and extreme capacity management. It is seeking monetary damages, royalty payments, and an injunction to block the infringement of its patents.
Oracle’s supply chain management software offerings include products it inherited with its acquisitions of JD Edwards and PeopleSoft.

More than 150 of our solutions have been rewarded with patent protection. We believe our visionary intellectual property, patent portfolio, and deep domain expertise form the cornerstone of our success.
