In the process, the partners said, they intend to help companies improve their management of global supply disruptions. The alliance combines Deloitte’s third-party risk-management expertise with LLamasoft’s supply-chain analytics, design and modeling software platform. It will focus on LLamasoft’s capability for aiding companies in modeling and visualizing their supply-chain networks. The initiative will be supported by the global member firms of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited. “It will enhance our ability to help clients with their critical supply-chain challenges and risks globally,” said James Cascone, partner and alliance leader for Deloitte’s global supply-chain risk-management practice.
