“The technologies that transformed disciplines like engineering and finance have been slow to reach supply chain management and procurement. In an era defined by software, data and AI, the mission-critical procurement function needs to operate with the full benefit of AI-based predictive analytics,” said LevaData founder and CEO Rajesh Kalidindi. “LevaData and IBM are committed to ensuring leaders in global manufacturing industries can achieve competitive advantage by increasing agility, driving efficiencies and reducing risk.”

“Applied AI, analytics and process automation have become essential to innovative supply chain transformation,” adds IBM’s Chief Procurement Officer Bob Murphy. “As enterprises continue to invest in cognitive technologies to improve their agility and competitiveness, LevaData and IBM are committed to a solution that is able to adapt and learn.”
