OTTAWA – Ottawa-based Kinaxis Inc. has formed an alliance with Infosys. The deal will bring together the Kinaxis supply chain planning platform with machine learning capabilities and Infosys’s extensive experience in supply chain and digital transformation consulting.

“Volatility in the supply chain is unavoidable. The key to managing it is to find the right platform, and right advice to design a supply chain solution that empowers businesses to identify and respond to risk and opportunity the moment they arise,” said John Sicard, CEO of Kinaxis.

“Infosys has a long celebrated track record of delivering digital excellence with its clients. We look forward to growing our relationship and working with them to bring real-world solutions to solve customers’ supply chain challenges.”

Headquartered in Bengaluru, India, Infosys provides next-generation digital services and consulting. The company has clients in 45 countries and three decades of experience in managing the systems and workings of global enterprises.

Kinaxis and Infosys serve clients in a variety of complementary industries, including aerospace and defence, automotive, consumer products, high-tech and electronics, industrial and life sciences.

“In the competitive business environment of this age, the traditional sequential supply chain model leads to silos and inefficiencies. Enterprises today need agile, transparent, optimized, connected, and intelligent digital supply chains,” said Gopikrishnan Konnanath, senior vice-president, service line head, Infosys.

“As part of this partnership, we will leverage our industry recognized supply chain capabilities along with the Kinaxis digital supply chain platform to help clients navigate their digital transformation and stay ahead of the curve,” he added.
