Social networks are a brilliant way to keep informed about friends and colleagues. The same holds true for supplier information.
Information is the key to supply chain optimization, and thus the SAP Global Business Incubator, a part of SAP Research, has created Supplier InfoNet, a cloud-based, on-demand solution that manages comprehensive supplier data.
Supplier InfoNet allows customers to monitor their supply companies’ performance in multiple-enterprise supply chains. Relevant operational data, such as delivery times and quality of components, is extracted and aggregated in industry-specific pools. Proprietary machine learning-based models then predict a supplier’s performance over time.
