The supply chain continues to substantially transform as businesses become increasingly digitized, global, and networked. Organizations are leveraging a range of systems and partnerships to effectively fulfill orders under tighter timelines and the pressures of greater customer and consumer demands.
Supply chain Control Towers are one of the most recognized and sought-after solutions for enhancing collaborations and unifying disparate systems through end-to-end, real-time visibility and control. Unfortunately, not all supply chain Control Towers are created equal, and when software providers refer to "Control Towers," they aren't all referring to the same capabilities. In fact, many of the most modern technologies lack comprehensive visibility and in-app control and tend to perpetuate organizational silos.
This white paper charts the evolution of the Control Tower as a means to embrace and extract value from today’s newfound supply chain complexity. The paper investigates some of the most significant ways solutions vary, such as analytic versus operational, as well as the crucial ways Control Towers can vary in scope, flexibility, and functionality. By highlighting the right questions to ask and considerations to make for both present and future challenges, the paper will help you identify how best to select and implement the right solution for your business needs.
