Intelligent Supply Chain Readiness Assessment
Only 6% of businesses currently have complete visibility over their supply chains. To compete and stay in the game, there is a critical need to adapt and disrupt by using predictive intelligence, analytics and real-time visibility, and ensuring your supply chain and last mile delivery initiatives are bringing full benefits.
To determine the next priorities in your supply chain operations or last mile delivery, Atos has developed a full readiness assessment. A short version is available here.
For supply chain initiatives to bring benefits, an intelligent solution with predictive intelligence,
analytics, and real-time visibility, becomes critical, allowing organizations to analyze data and turn that into prescriptive insights and action plans for the future.
The digital age, changing customer expectations, and new manufacturing methods are causing challenges in the supply chain. Discover how the Intelligent Supply Chain addresses key challenges, empowers Industry 4.0 and organizations to respond innovatively.
Major trends that encourage I4.0 are shorter product and service lifecycles and therefore the need to speed up time to market. This will increase the need for innovation and will introduce both complexity and cost. It may also bring organizations to their limit in terms of innovation capacity and capabilities in-house.
