Get to know Mary Ann Holder and some of his supply chain business networks research

Hybrid blockchain-enabled networks strategies right now with Mary Ann Holder? What are you working on today at One Network? Well, it’s good that you asked. We were working on a lot of great initiatives for 2019, especially around AI. We’re looking at how artificial intelligence is impacting the supply chain and how our solution can really help companies to better their supply chain and their relationships with their supplier networks. What do you think are some of the like top-line challenges for marketers for chief marketing officers or maybe even their suppliers? We are working on personalization. Really getting that right tailored content to our individual buyers and the community that surrounds them. When you think about a network, every buyer comes with their own network and a set of influencers that need to be messaged to accordingly. We have to really figure out what that message is and hone in on it and deliver it in a really personal way that it’s not canned or automated. There is a challenge in identifying the right technologies to help us do that. Then, also, the right types of content.

Mary Ann Holder talking about One Network’s Intelligent Control Tower: “One Network’s global network lies at the core of its value proposition and underpins its unified planning and execution capabilities. With over 90,000 global businesses on their network, users have the opportunity of collaboration with every other party on the network, and can form new partnerships easily, since required data streams have already been linked to the global network and can be shared through a permissibility framework. One Networks’ approach also enables business partners to improve performance in supply chain planning and execution. Forecasts and plans can automatically adjust to match supply with demand, while balancing capacity constraints, costs, and service levels. In the event of a disruption, AI enhancements provide users with prescriptive actions and can make adjustments to execution processes automatically.”

This year is the first time Gartner has published a report on multienterprise supply chain solutions. The report stated,”Networks are not new, but with companies focusing more on having end-to-end (E2E) processes include their external trading partners, these networks are increasing in importance and value. Collecting data and sensing signals in real time, and then coordinating, executing, and resolving issues quickly, will allow companies to operate their supply chains more effectively.”

Today, these hybrid blockchain-enabled networks are providing a real-time, shared, single version of the truth at the core of the business community. They eliminate data discrepancies, delays, and costs, while leveraging blockchain’s strong, decentralized, and trusted network. Best of all, it supports powerful new functionality such as chain of custody apps that run on the hybrid network. These shared apps empower shippers, carriers, freight forwarders, 3PLs/4PLs and other partners to track and manage orders and shipments, and collaboratively plan and execute across all stages of the supply chain, in a trusted, transparent, yet confidential environment. Considering the strategic role logistics play in business, how an organization approaches logistics can often dictate its overall success or failure. Blockchain enabled networks are creating an unprecedented advantage by greatly speeding how goods are moved throughout the supply chain by taking the guesswork out of process and ensuring all partners are operating on the same page.

“While many vendors just talk about bringing automation to their supply chain planning and inventory optimization software, One Network has customers that are live and using the capabilities to extract value from the technology,” said Seth Lippincott, lead analyst of the report. “By providing an integrated platform on which customers can run their supply chains end-to-end, the vendor is shortening the distance between planning and execution, providing a holistic view of inventory and the ability to optimize stocking levels. Nucleus expects the value One Network delivers to continue to improve as more customers adopt its automation and intelligent capabilities.” MaryAnn Holder-Browne, Chief Marketing Officer of One Network: “We are thrilled to once again be recognized by Nucleus Research”.
