IBM Sterling Supply Chain Business Network Overview

Digital business and globalization continuously disrupt the way we operate in nearly every industry. Customers expect what they want, when and where they want it. You need to meet expectations and seamlessly adapt to the various hurdles and ever-changing needs of a multi-enterprise environment.

The pressure on IT to address increasingly complex supply chain challenges continues to grow. However, many IT organizations operate systems that were built for another era and lack the transparency and visibility needed for today’s supply chains. Eighty-four percent of chief supply chain officers (CSCOs) report that a lack of visibility is their biggest challenge.

IBM Sterling Supply Chain Business Network is a cloud-based business network that enables you to simplify collaboration across your supply chain. It delivers embedded artificial intelligence (AI) insights for better decisions and provides multi-party B2B transaction visibility backed by IBM Blockchain.

Our business network enhances supply chain collaboration by automating B2B transactions with your customers, suppliers, and trading partners, which yields an average 3-year return on investment (ROI) of 308%. IT and business users can search and visualize the entire lifecycle of a transaction in real-time and in context or drill down to see the granular detail of specific documents.
