Going Live: Supply Chain Execution Gets Strategic With Real-Time, Contextual Data
Big data is changing the way information flows through the supply chain. While over the last several years cloud platforms have transformed the way supply chain transactions occur, the next evolution in technology will be even more disruptive. Contextual information, in the form of real-time data streams like weather data and Twitter feeds, will be used to predict the status of orders more accurately than ever before. These predictions, in turn, will allow decision makers to proactively manage their supply chains, prevent delays, and mitigate risk.
