Digital supply chain platform Blue Yonder and data cloud company Snowflake are collaborating to improve access to supply chain data, according to a Tuesday (March 29) press release.

Blue Yonder’s Luminate Platform, Powered by Snowflake, is an end-to-end supply chain solution that allows retailers, manufacturers and third-party logistics providers to predict, prevent and resolve business disruptions, to lessen risks and overcome supply chain challenges.

Blue Yonder and Snowflake “will collaborate to address the evolving supply chain needs of joint customers with the goal of making data more accessible and actionable,” according to the press release. Customers will have end-to-end visibility into their supply chain for faster, more accurate and informed decision-making, starting with Luminate Control Tower and Luminate Demand Edge.

The collaboration will give customers access to a single-source data infrastructure that provides real-time, end-to-end synthesis across planning, execution and commerce.

“By partnering with Snowflake, we are able to help our customers transform their access to disparate data — and how they leverage it — so they can better predict and pivot before disruptions occur, understand any potential impacts, and put in place prescriptive steps to mitigate risks to get back on-track to meet customer expectations,” Blue Yonder Interim CEO Mark Morgan said in the press release.

Blue Yonder will also incorporate Snowflake’s newly announced Retail Data Cloud — which unites Snowflake’s integrated data platform, Snowflake- and partner-delivered solutions and industry-specific datasets and models — into its suite of services.

“Our partnership with Blue Yonder will help prepare the supply chain across retailers, brands, manufacturers, and 3PLs with a data-driven future,” Snowflake Global Industry Lead, Retail and CPG Rosemary Hua said in the press release.

“With Luminate Platform, Powered by Snowflake, joint customers can uncover a single source of truth from planning through execution, connecting their business from end-to-end to reduce supply chain risks, enhance customer experiences, and help drive business growth,” she said.
