IDC PERSPECTIVE: Evolving from ERP to Network-Centric Supply Chain Applications


A recent IDC Perspective analysis takes a closer look at the evolution of supply chain applications. According to the report, half of large manufacturers will have begun shifting their supply chain applications from enterprise-centric to network-centric by the end of 2020, driving productivity gains of 2 percentage points.

The report features a marquee TCS case study wherein TCS has partnered with a large automotive manufacturer to conceptualize and implement a cost-efficient direct procurement and supply chain management solution. This engagement was undertaken with a goal to create a "scalable global supply chain solution for sourcing parts from around the world and supplying parts to plants anywhere in the world cost effectively and efficiently".

Key excerpts from the report:

· Multi-enterprise supply chain networks will have a transformative role in supply chain operations in the future

· Businesses must be more connected and more resilient. Network-centric applications will be the key that enables the possibility

· Manufacturers must engage a vendor that has experience in their market segment and has established network scale to meet the requirements
