Kearney, a global consultancy firm, has recently announced a collaboration with Aera Technology, a cognitive automation company. Through the partnership, Kearney's Sense and Pivot supply chain management solution will be integrated into Aera Technology's cloud-based Cognitive Operating System, aiming to improve the speed and agility of decision-making in supply chains.
Powered by Aera Technology’s Cognitive Operating System, Kearney’s Sense and Pivot solution helps companies adapt to demand volatility and evolving expectations in an unpredictable environment. It provides a real-time view of the market, cross-functional collaboration, as well as the ability to offer intelligent trade-off decisions between cost, service and working capital.
“When it comes to supply chain management, there are many variables to consider, but the key is to balance cost, service level and resiliency,” said Suketu Gandhi, partner in the Digital Transformation practice at Kearney. “Our partnership with Aera Technology will mean that companies can achieve this goal by anticipating disruptions more effectively and implementing contingency plans with ease.”
“There’s never been a more important time to create an agile supply chain that can meet volume spikes, scale up or down assets and adjust service levels,” said Gandhi. “We’re thrilled to be working with Aera Technology to help businesses future-proof their supply chains.”
"We've worked with the world's largest organizations to demonstrate the value of cognitive automation at scale," said Frederic Laluyaux, CEO of Aera Technology. "By integrating Kearney’s supply chain capabilities with Aera’s proven Cognitive Operating System, we are excited to extend this to an even wider range of companies with our strategic partnership with Kearney."
