It is a sincere pleasure to announce to Supply Chain Matters readers that the supply chain management (SCM)  practice of Infosys Technologies will be a continuing sponsor of this blog during 2010.  In fact, Infosys has elevated its level of sponsorship, recognizing the increasing reach and influence of Supply Chain Matters, as well as our joint efforts to provide added thought leadership in the area of global supply chain management business process and information technology needs.

The supply chain practice of Infosys continues to be on a roll, providing supply chain clients with the ability 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 and enterprise 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, have monitored their engagement growth since that time, and was delighted to include Infosys as a Supply Chain Matters sponsor in 2009.  During the year, I was invited to contribute guest postings regarding key supply chain and information technology strategic topics on the Infosys Supply Chain Management blog, and was pleased to exchange commentary with Gopikrishnan G.R. (Gopi), delivery manager and head of enterprise solutions and supply chain management consulting, as well as other participants(This cross-blog exchange activity will expand during the coming year and readers can anticipate guest postings and added commentary from Gopi and other Infosys senior consultants on Supply Chain Matters.  I will be attending key Infosys partner conferences in 2010, speaking and interacting with participants and providing live blog commentary, and will continue to be a guest blogger with Infosys.

Today this Infosys practice includes a healthy track record of over 400 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,ATG Commerce, Maximo and other technology alliances.  In 2010, look for Infosys to expand its presence in multi-channel selling, end-to-end order fulfillment and enterprise asset management process capability dimensions.
