Cupertino, CA, May 08, 2015 –(PR.com)– The Case for Cloud-based Supply Chain Management Today was authored by leading industrial journalist, Thomas R. Cutler. Cutler asserts the basic rationale for cloud-based Supply Chain Management (SCM) technology solutions has not changed in the past decade. The technology solutions have not undergone significant changes, although more agile and streamlined than the original iterations. What has changed dramatically in the past several years, particularly in the past twenty-four months, is the market receptivity for cloud-based SCM solutions.
After reviewing the reasons these technologies are now standard, expected, and demanded by global supply chain managers, and some of the technological improvements, this treatise will look at the strong attitudinal shifts of business executives which promulgate the notion that cloud-based SCM is normative and will continue to experience exponential growth over the next decade.
A fundamental change is taking place in the nature and application of supply chain technologies, a change with profound and far-reaching implications for manufacturing companies and their supply chain partners. Cloud-based Supply Chain Execution (SCE) solutions are creating a paradigm-shift in supply chain thinking. It shows how new web-based planning, collaboration, and tools are driving dramatic and rapid changes in decades old ERP (enterprise resource planning) and MRP (material requirement planning) forecast execution processes and systems, while simultaneously enabling pull across extended enterprise value chains.
