Infor, New York, rebranded its GT Nexus supply chain network as Infor Nexus to reinvent the way supply chains execute and use data and intelligence.

Infor Nexus combines the power of GT Nexus, Internet of Things (IoT) and Infor Coleman AI to deliver an intelligent supply chain network with a path to the autonomous supply chain. Infor Nexus is said to be the first solution to combine artificial intelligence (AI), IoT and advanced visualization through an end-to-end collaborative network, providing real-time visibility and predictive intelligence.

Infor Nexus connects companies’ enterprise systems, network partners and IoT devices in a single-instance, multi-enterprise business network platform to deliver a single version of the truth to all parties. By connecting to the network, companies digitalize their end-to-end supply chain processes, gain real-time visibility of all supply chain events, and take advantage of data-driven insights across internal systems and their entire network.

“The new Infor Nexus brand culminates the past three years we’ve spent transforming GT Nexus, leveraging digital technologies such as IoT, in-memory processing, mobile, advanced visualization and AI,” says Rod Johnson, executive vice president of manufacturing and supply chain. “Today, we’re delivering a next-generation supply chain network that is real-time, intelligent and self-orchestrating. Our customers are empowered to optimize service levels, costs and inventory through a digital environment that is hyper-connected and data-driven with a path to the autonomous supply chain.”

“Infor Nexus is an integral part of Infor’s vision to enable intelligent, flexible and seamless value-chain orchestration,” adds Johnson. “By creating high-fidelity connections between Infor Nexus and our Infor enterprise applications such as our ERPs, warehouse management, demand planning, supply planning and distributed order management, our enterprise applications have more accurate and timely information about their supply chains, and are able to swiftly make and execute decisions across the network.”
