The IDC MarketScape report highlights multi-enterprise supply chain commerce networks as critical for current and future supply chain performance. Multi-enterprise supply chain commerce networks are defined as platforms that facilitate the exchange of information among disparate parties pertaining to supply chain. These networks are instrumental to connect and create shared value between internal and external parties across multiple tiers and ecosystems to collaboratively resolve issues, address disruptions, mitigate risk, and identify new growth opportunities. The IDC MarketScape assessment is designed as a starting point to provide manufacturers, distributors, and retailers with a shortlist of qualified vendors.
“In today’s fast-paced, highly analytical supply chain, the use of networks to facilitate commerce and collaboration can mean the difference between meeting supply chain performance goals and not meeting goals,” said Simon Ellis, program vice president at IDC. “The challenge of an outsourced supply chain is that the ability to communicate in real-time and have acceptable levels of visibility both upstream and downstream has become increasingly problematic. IDC has observed for some years now the potentially transformative role of cloud-based networks on the ways in which supply chains will operate in the future.”
“We are honored by the IDC MarketScape’s recognition of E2open as a Leader in the multi-enterprise supply chain commerce network,” said Pawan Joshi, executive vice president of product management and strategy at E2open. “E2open’s goal is to connect the world’s industrial capacity and provide a more efficient and sustainable way to manage today’s complex, end-to-end supply chains. Our network platform is unique because it encompasses all functional areas of supply chain management, with the breadth to connect all tiers of partners across all ecosystems for all industries as well as depth to drive holistic decision-making processes across these tiers. Efficient and cost-effective digital transformation depends on connecting business processes between any and all partners – simply connecting one part of the supply chain is no longer sufficient for sustainable competitive differentiation.”
