Today’s global supply chain demands companies think differently. In particular, digitalizing the supply network to drive more agility, visibility, and collaboration with partners. Configuring and managing a complex digital network to enable multi-enterprise, multi-location collaboration on mission critical shared processes is a challenge. Technical solutions need to be implemented and linked to the appropriate internal locations and external partners. Partners and users need efficient and secure access to the applications, processes, and data critical for success. Such agile access also needs to be well controlled with the appropriate policies to ensure protection of confidential business data.
All of this needs to be orchestrated on a live, living network which is constantly evolving to meet new business needs. Traditional methods of rigid enterprise coding and configuration of systems can no longer keep up.
