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.
