On January 10th, o9 Solutions, a renowned artificial intelligence platform provider for efficient decision-making and strategic planning, announced its collaboration with Amazon Web Service Partner Network (APN). This union is expected to help businesses worldwide implement o9’s full suite of cloud-based solutions, maximizing the advantages of the AWS cloud.
o9’s AI-native planning and decision-making platform is developed on its future-proof digital brain platform. Its collaboration with APN will enable AWS’s cloud-computing power and extremely scalable and flexible infra to help enterprises make more accurate, faster decisions related to the supply chain. Companies across various industries like retail, consumer-packaged goods, high-tech and electronics manufacturing, telecom, oil and gas, life sciences, and industrial manufacturing, can now accelerate their digital transformation because of this deal.
“o9’s planning and decision-making solutions were built from the start to run in best-of-breed cloud environments like AWS,” commented Igor Rikalo, Chief Operating Officer at o9 Solutions. He further added, “Already, the combination of AWS and o9 has empowered many global businesses to transform their capabilities around integrated planning, revenue management, demand sensing, forecasting, and supply chain planning in general. Now, we can extend the reach of our platform to help even more companies seeking an end-to-end supply chain management solution.���
An Indian leading paint company, Asian Paints, has been leveraging the o9 platform since 2015 for sales and operations planning as well as demand management. Since then, the company has started adding o9’s Supply Chain Control Tower to its operations to achieve unmatched end-to-end visibility into demand and supply volatility.
“o9’s cloud-native technology gives us the power to take our planning and demand collaboration processes to the next level, despite our ever-increasing product portfolio and complex supply chain. As a result, we’ve benefitted from much better alignment between marketing, sales, and our supply chain team, leading to improved service levels while controlling our inventory and supply chain costs.”

Customers across all verticals will benefit from cloud-enabled technologies that improve flexibility, scalability, and collaboration. We are pleased to work with o9, who are committed to helping companies like Asian Paints run planning and analytics at scale with outstanding performance, positioning them to better compete in the digital age of business.”
