We're Spending More on Risk, Yet Most Aren't Happy with Results

Here's the problem with supply chain management software in a nutshell: The more you spend to fix the problems with your supply chain, the more you realize how many more problems you actually have. This paradox is fueling interest in the supply chain as never before.
At the core of that interest is the fact that supply chains are more complex and mission-critical than ever before. And despite the billions spent on SCM in the past decade or so, the risks associated with supply chains are growing, not diminishing. Moreover, every company is trying multiple methods of reducing supply chain risk, and very few are satisfied with the results of these efforts.
