What is AWS Supply Chain? - AWS Columbus Meetup

Veeam Software

What is AWS Supply Chain? Learn about a brand new full software application (not just a building block!) announced in preview at re:Invent 2022 and planned for GA later in 2023. Mitigate supply chain risks and lower costs with ML-powered actionable insights, built-in contextual collaboration, and demand planning. AWS Supply Chain connects to existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management systems, without replatforming, up-front licensing fees, or long-term contracts.
