Through its partnership with Google Cloud, C3 AI has announced a new supply chain software product named C3 AI Supply Chain Suite to improve current global supply chain processes.
“Our work with Google Cloud to create intelligent, highly resilient enterprise AI supply chain solutions has never been more important,” said Ed Abbo, president and chief technology officer of C3 AI.
The product aims to improve on-time in-full customer delivery with better demand forecasting, optimized inventory and production, and supplier lead time visibility.
“Combining AI capabilities with cloud infrastructure and the data organization and orchestration power of Google Cloud’s Supply Chain Twin will give customers the ability to predict changes and react quickly in increasingly inflationary and dynamic labor and supply environments,” Abbo said.
The suit is powered by Google Cloud products and infrastructure, including Google Kubernetes Engine, Google BigQuery and Vertex AI, which lets customers easily extend and configure AI algorithms.
“The expansion of the Google Cloud and C3 AI partnership in support of resilient supply chains represents another collaboration across industries and domains such as manufacturing sustainability, consumer packaged goods, retail, and healthcare,” said Hans Thalbauer, managing director of supply chain and manufacturing industries at Google Cloud. “Customers are already realizing faster time-to-value and seeing actionable insights in their data.”
Google Cloud solutions include integration services and data models, like Google Cloud Cortex Framework and Google Cloud Supply Chain Twin, to integrate company, public and community data at massive scale.
