It is my sincere pleasure to introduce my readers to an additional 2009 sponsor of the Supply Chain Matters blog which is the supply chain management (SCM)  practice of Infosys Technologies

The supply chain practice of Infosys enables global organizations to unlock added value from their supply chain business processes and information technology systems.  Key practice areas umbrella a wide swath, and include areas of supply chain planning, strategic sourcing/procurement, elements of supply chain execution as well as asset management. Industry coverage is broad, and includes manufacturing, retail, energy, media and financial services industries.

I first became aware of this practice in late 2005, and have monitored their engagement growth since that time.    Today this Infosys practice includes a healthy track record of over 300 supply chain  engagements with a 100% on-time delivery record.  This practice provides clients with unsurpassed project ramp-up capability with over 900 dedicated consultants. who can be called on to provide either functional as well as supply chain information technology expertise.  Delivery centers support a global presence, and currently include India, China, pan- Europe and North America.  Their supply chain technology skills span a variety of ERP and best-of-breed applications, with strategic partnerships that include Oracle, SAP, Sterling Commerce, and other technology alliances.

What I especially admire is that Infosys has reached out with an active engagement with the supply chain management community through venues of thought leadership, research, industry forum participation, as well as encouragement of blog commentary.  In-fact, the Infosys supply chain management practice sponsors its own Supply Chain Management blog where Infosys consultants, industry forms such as Supply Chain Council, and strategic alliance partners author their individual commentary in various functional areas.  This author is also looking forward to the opportunity to provide a guest posting on this blog.

I am very pleased to have the supply chain management practice at Infosys as a sponsor of Supply Chain Matters and look forward to a continued joint collaboration of thought leadership and industry commentary.
