According to the report, “Gartner defines multi enterprise supply chain business networks (MESCBNs) as cohesive technology platforms that support a community of trading partners that need to coordinate and execute on business processes that extend across multiple enterprises. Gartner considers MESCBNs to be foundational technology for more mature organizations, implemented to coordinate, automate and transform an organization’s extended supply chain within the overall business ecosystem they operate.”
Bernard Goor, Infor senior vice president of supply chain management, said, “Effectively seeing, planning, and acting on supply and demand requires a connected, multi enterprise approach. This empowers organizations to simultaneously optimize service levels, cost of goods sold (COGS), and working capital. We believe the Infor Nexus multi enterprise supply chain network is uniquely positioned to help customers build agile and resilient supply chains that are designed to help meet today’s demands and build for tomorrow’s growth.”
