Microsoft platform designs supply chains for agility, automation and sustainability


Microsoft launched the Supply Chain Platform, designed to help organizations maximize their existing supply chain investments with an open approach, bringing the best of Microsoft AI, collaboration, low code, security and Software-as applications -a-Service (SaaS) to a Composable Platform. The launch also includes the Supply Chain Center, which acts as a “command center” that works with existing supply chain data and applications.

With Dataverse, customers can use hundreds of data connectors to gain visibility and action across their entire supply chain. The Power Platform also enables custom workflows, data reports, and applications that connect to existing supply chain systems.

Of Microsoft:

  • Partners can bring their industry and domain expertise to create integrated solutions leveraging Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Teams, and Power Platform.
  • Data Manager in Supply Chain Center enables data ingestion and orchestration to provide visibility across the supply chain and redirect action to fulfillment systems.
  • Combined with intelligent news insights, which provides relevant news alerts in the supply chain hub on external events, supply chain practitioners can make decisions and plan with insights into real-world events and historical information about product requests.
  • The order management module orchestrates and automates fulfillment with a rules-based system using real-time omnichannel inventory data, AI, and machine learning.
  • Customers can mitigate supply constraints by collaborating with external suppliers in real time to secure new sources of supply, resolve transportation issues, and communicate upstream and downstream impacts as changes occur.
