Chris Tyas states; “Large corporations are waking up to the imperative of digitally transforming their planning and operations. However, digital transformation needs to go from buzzwords and empty promises to delivering tangible value. Platform technologies like o9 Solutions are pioneering this trend with a singular focus on value delivery for Fortune 500 corporations. I am looking forward to this journey with my fellow leaders in the AIM10x Executive Network, and hope that many organizations will join us, in our mission to transform large organizations, because that is good for them, and good for the planet as well.”
Pertti Korhonen states: “Integrated Supply Chain Planning is one of the most important elements of competitiveness for any company dealing with physical flow of products. It has a major impact on customer service, responsiveness to market demand changes, profitability and return on investment – in nutshell it has a big impact on both growth and profitability. Today’s supply chains are complex and global. The only way to gain competitiveness is to establish real time visibility, both of the information flow from the end customer throughout the chain to all suppliers, and to the flow of goods from suppliers to end customers. I am very excited that with the o9 platform this dream is finally becoming possible.”
