We are pleased to announce that 21 Blue Yonder customers were recently named to the 16th annual “Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2020.”* The report** identifies supply chain top 25 and discusses key findings and recommendations, while covering the supply chain function.

According to “The Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2020” report***, “The three key factors that differentiated leading supply chains this year were being purpose-driven organizations, business model transformers and digital orchestrators.”  In addition, this year’s major methodology included “a conversion to return on physical assets (ROPA) from return on assets (ROA), a reduction in the weighting of the inventory measure and an increase in weighting to the environmental, social and governance (ESG) (previously corporate social responsibility [CSR]) measure.”

Blue Yonder believes its comprehensive solutions and robust partner ecosystem help enable these three trends. Blue Yonder’s core solutions span across supply chain and retail planning, execution and delivery, and are infused with leading artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities that make supply chains more cognitive, predictive and profitable, unlocking new levels of business value and driving a superior customer experience. Blue Yonder’s LuminateTM Platform is powered by Microsoft Azure and combines rich internal and external data from across a customer’s digital supply chain assets to allow for smarter, more actionable business decisions.

“Blue Yonder’s Luminate Platform is the world’s number one digital fulfillment platform providing synchronized business planning, execution, delivery and labor solutions that optimize our customers’ end-to-end supply chain,” said Kevin Iaquinto, chief marketing officer, Blue Yonder. “Now more than ever, with the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain planners are in need of solutions that empower their supply chains to be predictable and less complex.
