Microsoft and IT services provider Infosys Technologies revealed on Thursday an alliance around improving supply chain visibility and collaboration.

"This goal of getting simplification into what is an increasingly complex environment is not going away," said Tyler Bryson, general manager of the manufacturing sector at Microsoft. "At a time when our industry needs to improve, the complexity is increasing." Each incremental supplier, for example, adds seven new touch points to an organization, Bryson said.
