Dallas, USA – India: o9 Solutions and Google Cloud have formed a key partnership to offer supply chain solutions on Google Cloud.
Leading companies such as Canadian Tire, Google, Lands’ End, LIXIL and Pearson have all recently selected o9’s next-gen AI-enabled IBP (Integrated Business Planning) platform on Google Cloud.
The new partnership extends the reach of o9 to companies looking to transform their business functions and operational capabilities.
The tie-up will specifically target retail, consumer product manufacturer and telecom companies.
“The COVID-19 crisis has exposed significant weaknesses in how organisations run their value chains today,” said Igor Rikalo, President and COO – o9 Solutions.
Data remains critical for effective planning, and Google Cloud’s data sources and scalability are key to deal with this new level of complexity.
In addition, o9’s Enterprise Knowledge Graph (I.e. Digital Brain) is able to convert data (both structured and unstructured, external and internal) to actionable insights to drive improved decision making.
“We are proud to offer the o9 platform on our cloud infrastructure and to support businesses seeking more agile capabilities,” said Carrie Tharp, Vice President, Retail and Consumer- Google Cloud.
“This partnership is a great opportunity to help retailers and other supply chain-reliant businesses build flexible, reliable, and scalable businesses processes,” added Tharp.
“We are excited to announce the expansion of our partnership with Google Cloud, which started in 2018 with the selection of o9’s platform to enable supply planning processes for Google Cloud itself,” added Rikalo.
