Abstract: Supply chain management typically involves supervising the transfer of products and goods, such as from a supplier, then to a manufacturer, a wholesaler, a retailer and finally to the consumer. Information technology (IT) refers to the use of computer-based programs to store and manipulate information. IT advances directly can correlate to supply chain management improvements, such as through the rise of effective virtual supply chains. Supply chain information collaboration system bases on cloud computing technology provide efficient supply chain information system based on cloud computing technologies like software as a service (SaaS), platform as service (PaaS) and infrastructure as service (IaaS). With the availability to anytime and anywhere cloud services provide sharing of resources of its services to supply chain. Because supply chain information sharing are demand driven by nature and increase or decrease globally so it should need scalable distributed system rather than centralize one. This paper adopts basic idea of cloud computing to provide an efficient and scalable solution for supply chain management using distributed datacenter of cloud computing.
