The IDC MarketScape’s report highlights that multi-enterprise supply chain commerce networks have become a critical element for supply chains in the short and long term. According to the report, IDC predicts that “by 2020, half of the large manufacturers will have begun shifting their supply chain applications from enterprise-centric to network-centric, driving productivity gains of 2 percentage points”. This shift will continue to accelerate as companies modernize their supply chains to be more outsourced, distributed and real-time.

After a comprehensive analysis of the vendor landscape, the IDC MarketScape identified the eight network providers to meet the criteria of broad functional supply chain expertise and significant customer bases. IDC defines a multi-enterprise supply chain commerce network as any platform that facilitates the exchange of information, transactions or both among disparate parties pertaining to the supply chain or to supply chain processes. The assessment is designed as a starting point to provide manufacturers with a short list of qualified vendors.

“The shift from enterprise-centric to network-centric is fundamentally changing how supply chains operate,” said Michael Farlekas, president and chief executive officer of E2open. “We are quickly reaching a tipping point as companies push to better serve customers and make more profitable decisions in fast-moving markets. The days of focusing solely on that which is happening within your four walls are numbered. The IDC MarketScape’s recognition of E2open as a leader in this space, and advice to consider vendors meeting today’s needs while keeping an eye on tomorrow’s needs, validates E2open’s strategy to help customers at any stage of their supply chain journey, from taking the first step beyond spreadsheets through to digital transformation.”
