Episode 28 | Supply Chains: The “Orchestrator” of Today’s Business
The Big Themes:
- Why AWS entered the supply chain space: The company has the knowledge and expertise to solve critical issues for businesses today. AWS is “putting its competency to work for its customers.”
- Customers want to create their own roadmap: AWS Supply Chain is not a “rip and replace solution.” The product leverages the already-existing solutions customers are using to further inform decision-making.
- A supply chain is the “orchestrator” of today’s business: AWS Supply Chain is industry-agnostic and is a “backbone” to the various solutions already being utilized by customers.
The Big Quote: “Everybody needs to have a good orchestrator, a good supply chain, that can really help this business to be successful. So we’re not building this application focused in any specific industry, but we’re making the solution, the backbone of the solution, very strong to serve all these different industries. So customers can leverage our investments and in our cloud-native architecture, so they can leverage this technology in different industries like I mentioned before. So, the exciting thing is that since our preview launch, we’ve been able to have those discussions across multiple industries.”
