As projected in a recent CNBC article, we’re currently facing a “massive shuffling of supply chains globally after coronavirus shutdowns.” Due to major closures in China, Europe, and North America, companies find themselves in a difficult position: How will they deal with unparalleled uncertainties in demand, supply, inventory, and transport?

Cloud and SaaS technologies have made extraordinary strides toward breaking the systemic and spatial boundaries that otherwise limit effective, networked collaboration. And yet, many of the most progressive platforms and software are draped over the stiff bones of outdated frameworks.
