We’re excited to be supporting Microsoft in the launch of the new Microsoft Supply Chain Platform.
Announced earlier this week, the platform aims to tackle current supply chain disruptions that are being faced by businesses across the globe, in large due to legacy systems lacking the capacity to keep up with the pace at which supply chain complexity is changing.
Problems arise when organisations rely on disparate solutions that connect their data, as they not only hinder decision-makers’ ability to respond quickly to changing market conditions but prevent businesses from making accurate predictions in order to mitigate disruption.
Enter the Microsoft Supply Chain Platform
The revolutionary new platform will provide customers with building blocks across the full Microsoft Cloud, including Microsoft Azure, Dynamics 365, Microsoft Teams, and the Power Platform. With this, customers are then able to address their specific supply chain needs by adopting the capabilities that fit their business requirements and enhance their supply chain.
What’s more, customers can tap into the Microsoft partner ecosystem to benefit from industry-specific integrated solutions from implementers such as K3 partner, Avanade.
A preview of the Microsoft Supply Chain Centre
Now available in preview, Microsoft also announced the launch of the Microsoft Supply Chain Centre, which will operate at the core of the Microsoft Supply Chain Platform.
Offering a command centre experience, the Supply Chain Centre will collate data from existing supply chain systems and applications to accelerate business agility and efficiency.
Access to the Supply Chain Centre will be granted automatically for existing Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management customers, who can benefit from the centre’s supply and demand insights module, order management module, smart news insights, partner modules, and a secure, built-in Teams integration.
Supply Chain Re-Imagined
At its Supply Chain Reimagined digital event yesterday, Microsoft highlighted that there has been serious change in supply chain thinking over the past five years in terms of sustainability and the global economic impact of getting products to market, whilst meeting changing consumer demands has continued to be top of mind.
The event also showcased customers, partners, and industry experts discussing today’s real issues, demonstrating the need for the Microsoft Supply Chain Platform and Supply Chain Centre in order to create a more resilient, agile, and sustainable supply chain today, without totally reengineering it end to end.
It was great to see K3 highlighted along with other great partners supporting the next generation in supply chain thinking.
At K3, we’re delighted by this news and are excited to be supporting Microsoft by adding value to enable better sustainable choices in the supply chain with our solutions.
