ABSTRACT:
Few business objectives have been so ill-served as the notion of equilibrium between demand and supply. While the adoption of supply chain management systems has been a multi-billion dollar fact of life over the last 20 years, the ability of companies to truly manage their global trading partner networks in an efficient and effective way has failed to live up to vendors' promises.

This report is intended as a "call to arms" for companies currently managing their supply chains as though they were still horizontally-integrated, linear systems. The time for muddling through the confusing morass of supply chain solutions is over. The supply chains of the world need better technology and a functional platform that delivers visibility, collaboration, and control across extended, multi-tiered networks in order to realize their effectiveness. This platform exists today, and this report will describe what the new paradigm looks like and how it works to deliver genuine multi-enterprise functionality to major global corporations, in ways that simply couldn't be done using a traditional, on-premise, supply chain management solution.
