I talk with Ken Lyon, Managing Director of Bit Logistics, and with Jean-Baptiste Perrin, responsible for Support and Marketing at BitLogistics. They share with us their approach to delivering what some call “Software as a Service” (SaaS), or software available “On-Demand”. Solutions like this are one facet of the “Cloud Computing” phenomena and they explain that it enables supply chain partners to more readily share appropriate information in a timely way. Their software, VisibleLogistics, is still in beta, but they encourage you to go visit their sitehttp://www.visiblelogistics.com and try out their beta.
A quick aside, Dell has on their community site a discussion about cloud computing, and how the Software as a Service approach may be good news in trying financial times. Go read over at: Cloud Computing – Dell
