You already know that having hundreds of siloed, enterprise-centric systems is no way to run a business. You’re hearing the calls for real-time response from your customers loud and clear, and you know your legacy systems can’t cope. You realize that you need better collaboration and visibility across your company and with partners, and that you need greater resilience in the face of disruptions and shifting supply or demand. You also know that huge cost savings are possible.

To get there, things have to change. One Network’s platform makes it possible and our experts are ready to help.

What is Digital Transformation?

A digital transformation is the use of digital technologies to reinvent the way a company does business, to be more productive, agile, and responsive, in order to deliver higher value to customers at lower cost. Few areas of a business can benefit from digitization more than the supply chain. The potential value locked up in slow and inefficient processes, compounded across many trading partners, is huge.

A digital transformation is not just a technology upgrade. It’s an ongoing attitude and a readiness to adapt and respond to an increasingly fast-changing business environment and uncertain future.

Digital transformations are difficult to pull off. You need to keep your core business running and optimized, while executing on digital initiatives that touch all aspects of the company, along with mastering new technologies and skills. One Network is here to help with technology, expert services, and a proven “dual platform strategy” to ensure the success of your digitization projects.

Take a Dual Platform Approach

Installing a business network layer through a multi-enterprise platform makes your digital transformation possible in a clear, systematic way. One Network offers complete end-to-end supply chain functionality for planning and execution -- everything from inbound supplied to outbound order fulfillment and logistics.

With that, begin moving business functionality into the network layer over time. This unlocks enormous value as you eliminate time lags, costs, and inventory buffers. We've seen this time and time again in our customer base.

The key is that you move capabilities into the business network layer in a way that matches your priorities. We call this a “tunable system of control” because you decide. You can take a systematic, phased approach that lowers risk and is self-funding, because you're focusing on the most important areas first. As you go along, you capture benefits and declare project successes every step.
