Today I’m delighted to be joined by E2open, a company who believes that the level of agility required to capture growth opportunities – plus the resiliency to manage today’s risks – demands a new way of thinking. Their range of intelligent applications allow supply chain leaders to make the best business decisions using real-time information from across their entire internal and external ecosystems.

They aim to unlock your potential with their expertise, delivering you end-to-end visibility, planning and execution, all in real time.

I’m joined by Michael Farlekas, President and Chief Executive Officer at E2open, to talk about why the company is a market-leader, the impact of issues like COVID and Brexit on supply chain and why they chose 2021 to take E2open public.
