Finance and supply chain: These two essential business functions speak different languages and live in different worlds. Both contribute mightily to the success and the profitability of their companies, in their own ways.

The supply chain as we know it is evolving quickly. Plan, execute, and sense-and-respond processes are more often happening concurrently and continuously—spurring the transformation of the supply chain into a true digital ecosystem. The driving force of this evolution is the need for end-to-end visibility—to enable openness, connections, and collaboration across the value chain. This level of visibility empowers organizations to optimize operations, reduce costs, improve working capital, and increase supply chain velocity. A more resilient and agile supply chain can act as a strong competitive differentiator.
