Manufacturing is constantly evolving
It’s an industry driven by customer demand and technology. And as manufacturing businesses
grow to a certain size, globalization becomes a factor. Interacting with the world offers
lucrative opportunities and creates a higher demand for products and sources of cheaper
raw materials that often impact the entire supply chain.
Marc Jacobs has been able to redirect employees from the considerable time spent maintaining spreadsheets and managing AP information. In just four months after deploying MediusFlow, the company was able to justify the investment. One year from deployment, it expects to have made $150,000 in productivity gains.
By modernizing its solution for invoice processing, Marc Jacobs can easily manage its complex supply chain and get back to the creative work of designing and delivering next season’s collection.

For manufacturers, the transition to Industry 4.0 has meant the accumulation of data, massive data. Indeed, the accumulation, distribution and evaluation of data are driving virtually every decision on the manufacturing plant floor and supply chains shaping those decisions. Given the striking fact that ninety percent of the data in the world has been created over the last two years, it isn’t surprising that more than 60 percent of large companies report having a Chief Data Officer. But what has opened the floodgates to this deluge of information in manufacturing? Ordinary sensors have been transformed into smart sensors with the advent of IoT technologies and are being deployed by manufacturers along every step of the supply chain. Sensors are now detecting everything from when a piece of equipment will need maintenance to controlling energy costs inside factories.

An Airbus A380 is made up of 7 million different pieces with each piece coming from different parts of the world including Germany, Spain, UK, and France. Assembling the final plane requires support from various IT and operations teams. Leveraging legacy supply chain technology to support on-time arrival and coordination of parts was incredibly challenging, and only worsened with the need for new parts and pressure of massive growth. In order to scale, Airbus needed to think through how to transform and digitize its global supply chain.
Hear from Airbus and how they are leveraging Anypoint Platform to enhance their production efficiency, and ultimately, drive innovation throughout the entire supply chain.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
Leverage APIs to support a complex manufacturing process with multiple global partners.
Foster collaboration amongst siloed IT teams through API reuse and API-led connectivity.
Reduce time to market by providing end-to-end visibility acros
FTP was developed in 1971, and a lot has changed in the decades since it was first created. Though the protocol has seen improvement over the years, there are some fundamental drawbacks to relying on this old technology for transferring today’s large media files.
FTP can no longer keep up with the modern global media supply chain. Whether you are a top tier company or a small startup, being in the media business today requires next-generation acceleration software. Read this whitepaper to find out more.
Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.

Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.

Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners.
This RSR custom research report explores the impact of omnichannel methods on merchandising, marketing and the supply chain; specifically, what analytical capabilities address the challenges that omnichannel selling and fulfillment pose for retailers. Consumers today routinely begin their shopping journeys online, but complete their purchases in nearby stores, in their “home” stores or delivered directly to their doors. Retail analytics enables organizations to capture data from their customers' journeys. Retailers that successfully deliver relevant omnichannel experiences while gaining a more sophisticated understanding of demand (where and how it is initiated) will enhance their brands’ value and create compelling and profitable customer relationships.
Discover how the supply chain is undergoing tremendous change; once a complicated, siloed bundle of functions ranging from manufacturing to production and delivery, the supply chain is now extended to reflect the importance of networks to the modern business. Learn how these networks connect businesses to customers.
