Executives in global supply chain organizations understand that interoperability between enterprise systems and trading partners is an increasingly essential target for improving supply chain operations.
They also understand that managing the many connections between these systems, and ultimately achieving perfect supply chain orchestration, has traditionally been a monumental task. Today, that is no longer the case.
Advances in supply chain technology mean that critical supply chain management (SCM) upgrades can be undertaken either prior to or alongside an ERP upgrade.
Increasing amounts of data mean that critical SCM upgrades must be prioritized, even ahead of the ERP in some cases. Organizations need a way to gain visibility into their supply chain data, and capitalize on that data, right now. They cannot afford to wait for their new ERP tools to be fully functioning. That could take years.
In this eBook, we reveal which cloud-based technology platforms can give businesses the power to harness the benefits of a highly orchestrated supply chain right now, without adding another level of IT complexity or introducing a new data or system silo.
