Supply Chain Network Visibility and Analytics


The complexity of the global economy is a powerful motivation for companies to look for new ways to increase efficiency and productivity.

virtual value chain  must be transformed into virtual communities or networks. These networks allow all participants - such as customers, suppliers, logistics providers, and so on - to sense changes in demand and supply conditions as they occur and to share the critical knowledge needed to respond intelligently. The result is an adaptive supply chain network that is not only demand driven, but can also leverage its assets to influence demand where appropriate. This requires a dynamic synchronization of demand-driven Read More
