Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, has announced that it is rebranding its GT Nexus supply chain network as Infor Nexus, as it digitally reinvents the way supply chains execute and use data and intelligence to be more customer-centric. Infor Nexus combines the power of GT Nexus, IoT and Infor Coleman AI to deliver an intelligent supply chain network with a path to the autonomous supply chain. Infor Nexus is the first solution of its kind to combine AI, IoT and advanced visualization through an end-to-end collaborative network, providing real-time visibility and predictive intelligence.
“Supply chain organizations need to focus on reinventing their operating models to break silos, develop end-to-end visibility, and create an agile and seamless collaboration model,” said Mohammed Hajibashi, Global Supply Chain Lead, Products Industries, Accenture, in his Oct. 4, 2018, report, Reinventing the supply chain with AI. “New data sources and advanced analytics can make this possible. Leveraging artificial intelligence, companies can process massive and diverse data sets from across all functions to provide better visibility within the supply chain.”
Infor Nexus connects companies’ enterprise systems, network partners and IoT devices in a single-instance, multi-enterprise business network platform to deliver a single version of the truth to all parties. By connecting to the network, companies digitize their end-to-end supply chain processes, gain real-time visibility of all supply chain events, and take advantage of data-driven insights across internal systems and their entire network.
According to the announcement, the re-brand comes on the heels of the recent launch of Control Center, which provides a high-fidelity, end-to-end picture of global supply chain flows. This, combined with Coleman AI, enables customers to predict potential issues, identify opportunities to act, and place their focus on situations projected to have the greatest impact on business. Aligning users within and across the network helps companies respond faster and deliver with speed, flexibility and precision.
“The new Infor Nexus brand culminates the past three years we’ve spent transforming GT Nexus – leveraging digital technologies such as IoT, in-memory processing, mobile, advanced visualization and AI,” said Rod Johnson, EVP of Manufacturing & Supply Chain at Infor. “Today, we’re delivering a next-generation supply chain network that is real-time, intelligent and self-orchestrating. Our customers are empowered to optimize service levels, costs and inventory through a digital environment that is hyperconnected and data-driven, with a path to the autonomous supply chain.”
With Infor Nexus, data once trapped in organizational silos is now visible in a single version of the truth. Everyone sees and acts on the same information at the same time. Infor Coleman AI applies machine learning to global flows of demand, supply and capital to provide rich insights and predictive analysis, while enabling users to execute resolutions directly in the network, versus consulting multiple enterprise tools. Shared visibility, actionable insights and digital collaboration aligns users across both the organization and the extended network for profitable execution to meet customer demand. As a result, companies can sense and respond to supply chain issues or opportunities faster and smarter.
