Tech giant Microsoft Corp. announced the Microsoft Supply Chain Platform, an open-approach platform that combines Microsoft AI, collaboration, low-code, security and SaaS applications in a composable platform.
Microsoft said the new platform will make it easier for customers to realize the value of the Microsoft Cloud for their supply chain. It provides the building blocks across Azure, Dynamics 365, Microsoft Teams and Power Platform for customers to develop or independently adopt capabilities for their supply chain needs. With Dataverse, customers may create thousands of connectors to gain visibility across the supply chain, develop custom workflows with low-code solutions in Power Platform, and securely collaborate internally and externally through Teams.
The company also announced the preview of Microsoft Supply Chain Center, a command center for supply chain visibility and transformation that is part of the Microsoft Supply Chain Platform. Supply Chain Center is designed to work natively with an organization's supply chain data and applications, with built-in collaboration, supply and demand insights, and order management, the company said.
"Businesses are dealing with petabytes of data spread across legacy systems, ERP, supply chain management and point solutions, resulting in a fragmented view of the supply chain," said Charles Lamanna, corporate vice president, Microsoft Business Applications and Platform. "Supply chain agility and resilience are directly tied to how well organizations connect and orchestrate their data across all relevant systems. The Microsoft Supply Chain Platform and Supply Chain Center enable organizations to make the most of their existing investments to gain insights and act quickly."
