The last two years of supply chain disruptions, including the pandemic, the Suez Canal clog, the current Gridlock, and other events, have inadvertently shifted focus away from supply chain digital transformation as companies have scrambled to remediate these challenges. However, ironically, digital transformation would have better positioned supply chains to address or potentially even preempt those disruptions.
Digital Supply Chain Transformation has never been more important and ultimately, will impact a company’s overall success and viability. Digital Transformation progresses well beyond digitization of supply chain functions and creates a connected digital ecosystem, enabling companies to deliver better customer experiences, achieve their commercial goals and will position them for greater agility and resilience in disruptive times. Therefore, delaying or deferring digital supply chain transformation is no longer an option.
