Creating Competitive Advantage Through a Digital Supply Chain
The rapid rise of innovations and operational evolutions such as Industry 4.0 are ushering in a profound new era of the digital supply chain. A well-architected supply chain model is anchored in four key pillars – namely predictability, agility, trace- ability and sustainability – which serve as critical enablers that more and more organizations are striving for as they reinvent their ecosystems. These pillars can enable better visibility of data, which in turn provide supply chain transparency across the entire value chain of an organization when implemented effectively.
