EY Announces Alliance With Aera Technology To Unlock the Power of Decision Intelligence in Supply Chain Transformation

Ernst & Young

  • Powering faster, synchronized reactions to unprecedented changes
  • Implementing leading supply chain practices without costly IT overhauls
  • Automating decision making to drive operational and financial improvement

London, April 6, 2022 - EY today announces an alliance with Aera Technology (Aera) and Ernst & Young LLP (EY US), to help organizations leverage Decision Intelligence to accelerate their supply chain transformation.

Today’s supply chains face growing pressures from increasingly demanding consumers while trying to mitigate the impact of disruptions. Each change requires a decision to be made on a real-time basis. To address the increased volume, velocity, and complexity of decisions, organizations are turning to Decision Intelligence – the digitization, augmentation, and automation of decision making – to dramatically increase the agility to react to those almost daily changes.

The EY-Aera alliance combines the best of EY’s proven supply chain transformation expertise, paired with Aera’s innovative cognitive technology. Aera Decision Cloud™ is a cloud-based, always-on digital platform that applies data crawling, artificial intelligence and industry-specific models to make recommendations, predict outcomes, and act autonomously to execute complex strategic and operational decisions – from dynamic order fulfillment and supply-demand balancing to efficient production re-scheduling, delivery compliance optimization, and more.

The EY-Aera alliance delivers end-to-end digital transformation and leading-edge technology tailored to the customer’s business needs, providing clients a road map to reimagine processes and derive value.  Through this alliance, organizations can recognize the value of Decision Intelligence in their supply chains in weeks, not months or more.

Michael Dobslaw, EY Global Aera Alliance Leader, says “Our alliance with Aera holds incredible potential to help our clients reach new levels of supply chain innovation.  Aera’s unique cognitive decision-making technology plays a key role in empowering continuous planning and execution improvement that is at the core of EY’s supply chain transformation approach.”

Fred Laluyaux, CEO, Aera Technology, says:  “EY shares our vision of helping organizations reimagine how decisions are made. Together we will enable business leaders to elevate Decision Intelligence and accelerate supply chain transformation.”
