We need a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model which will enable community SCM (C-SCM) for both large and small companies that outsource manufacturing. We want communities of supply chain owners, customers and supply partners to use any public or private cloud environment. We want our community to take advantage of scalability, security and reliability of current cloud environments. Our goal is to centralize information and create real-time, cross-community visibility. Cloud is all about dynamic choice, ‘just-in-case’ computing power and scalability.
