Contract manufacturer and managed service provider Jabil announced Tuesday the launch of InControl, a new supply chain decision support platform, according to a press release. The offering comprises a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform and five integrated applications: Supply Chain Visibility, Event Risk, Design for Supply Chain, Risk Management and Supply Chain Diagnostics.

“Today's supply chains and tools aren't architected to effectively address all of the requirements our customers need to compete and win in an increasingly digital ecosystem," said Don Hnatyshin, senior vice president and chief supply chain and procurement officer for Jabil. "InControl was designed for, and by, supply chain practitioners to provide the real-time intelligence, visibility and analytics our customers have been asking for so they can move with B2C speed and agility in a B2B world."

Spend Matters has received a briefing on Jabil’s new offering and will provide further details in the coming days.

Jaggaer Goes for the Vertical(s)

Source-to-pay (S2P) provider Jaggaer is launching a suite of solutions tailored to the needs of multiple industry verticals, the company said in a press release. Industries targeted will include manufacturing, logistics, healthcare, retail, CPG and life sciences/pharma.

Study on Digital Adoption

SAP released a new study last week in collaboration with the University of Tennessee and DiCentral that examines how supply chain practitioners are planning to adopt — and adapt — digital tools to prepare for and protect against this disruption, according to a press release. INteresting findings include the fact that 76% of survey participants expect growth in their electronic supplier connections up to or more than 25% and that more than 75% of survey participants agree their current system can process most inbound EDI/XML connections without human intervention.

Developed Country Growth

And finally, an economic update: Developed countries exhibited slower economic growth in the first quarter of 2017, the Wall Street Journal reports, emphasizing the global economy’s still “anemic” recovery from the global financial crisis.
