"Volatility of demand and competition, as well as the compression of product life cycles are contributing to an environment wherein how quickly you can respond to changes becomes a key competitive differentiator,” says Randy Littleson, Kinaxis VP of marketing. “Solectron is at the eye of the storm, with changes coming in from all directions from its customers and suppliers. Solectron uses RapidResponse internally, but also is stepping up to help its customers respond to change through coordinated activity. Solectron is sharing information from its system to enable broader visibility.”
