AUSTIN, Texas – March 17, 2021 E2open (NYSE:ETWO), the network for the digital economy, today announced Nari Viswanathan, Senior Director of Product Marketing, has been named a winner of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2021 Pros to Know for his work on behalf of global clients of E2open in analyzing the impact on business performance through demand forecasting and sensing, and other holistic supply chain planning processes.

“I’m honored by the recognition of my peers and to be selected for the annual Pros to Know award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive,” said Viswanathan. “The past year sent shocks throughout the global economy, and especially throughout global supply chains. At E2open, we are more motivated than ever to solve some of the toughest problems and continue to innovate on supply chain solutions. I am very proud of the work in which I was nominated for leading the charge on cutting-edge solution development for ecosystem commerce collaboration and orchestration of supply network processes.”

Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Pros to Know award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chain for competitive advantage. This year’s list includes individuals and teams from software and service providers, consultancies and academia, trucking and transportation firms, professional development agencies, sourcing and procurement divisions, and more, all who have helped supply chain clients and the supply chain community at large prepare to meet many of today’s—and tomorrow’s—challenges.

As a key member of E2open’s product marketing team, Viswanathan helped lead E2open’s first Artificial Intelligence (AI) and supply chain study following the COVID-19 pandemic, Blueprint for Managing Supply Chain Disruptions of Any Size: COVID-19 and the Role of Artificial Intelligence. The report analyzed E2open’s proprietary data to evaluate the effect of the pandemic on supply chain performance during the initial response and first-wave recovery periods. The paper also identified the benefits of utilizing AI and real-time data, which cut forecast error by an average of 30% during the initial response period and by 37% in the recovery period after the first wave.

“While many companies have struggled to re-gain their footing as a result of COVID-19, this year’s Pros to Know winners stepped up to the plate to deliver innovative solutions and programs in a time of crisis and need. These winners collaborated, optimized, developed, educated and played a critical role in the survival and success of their company amid a global pandemic,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “I am honored to recognize these individuals and teams, and extend my utmost gratitude to everyone in the supply chain industry for their time, efforts and innovations to keep our nation’s supply chains afloat.”
