E2open provides AMD with real-time, end-to-end visibility and control across operations, to better respond to potential disruptions as they occur, improve global supply chain performance, and prevent lost sales.
"Outsourcing is a key strategy for today's industry-leading companies as it helps to drive lower costs, reduce capital assets, and get products to market quickly, and more efficiently, than the competition," said Michael Schmitt, Chief Marketing Officer, E2open. "Several years ago, AMD made a decision to shift to a largely outsourced production model. We are pleased to have been able to help AMD successfully integrate its extended supply chain on a common platform that provides the visibility and integration the company requires, and aligns operations and financial processes to reduce costs and increase responsiveness."
