We are happy to announce to our Supply Chain Matters readers that the supply chain management (SCM) practice of Infosys Technologies Limited will be a continuing Silver sponsor of this blog during 2011.  The Infosys SCM team continues to recognize 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 provide its 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, multi-channel order fulfillment, and enterprise asset management. Industry coverage is broad and includes manufacturing, retail, energy, media and financial services industries.

Since becoming aware of the Infosys SCM practice in late 2005, I have monitored their engagement growth. Supply Chain Matters was delighted to welcome Infosys as a blog sponsor in 2009, and we look forward to continuing our joint thought leadership efforts throughout 2011.

During this past year, I continued to contribute guest postings regarding key supply chain and information technology strategic topics on the Infosys Global Supply Chain Management blog, and was pleased to exchange commentary with Gopikrishnan G.R. (Gopi), delivery manager and lead for the SCM practice, as well as other Infosys community readers. In 2011, this cross-blog exchange activity will expand and readers can anticipate guest postings and added commentary from Gopi and other Infosys practioners on Supply Chain Matters.  I will also be expanding my guest blogger contributions on the Infosys SCM blog.

In April, Supply Chain Matters will be attending and providing blog coverage of IBM Impact 2011 Conference in Las Vegas where Infosys will be featured as a Gold sponsor.  We look forward to meeting up with Infosys SCM clients, readers of this blogs and colleagues.

Today Infosys has 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 1000 dedicated package consultants. Consultants can be called upon to provide either functional as well as supply chain information technology expertise.  Infosys operates globally from 31 countries and 75 cities across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and Middle East & Africa.
