Is it the end of the ERP era?
In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous marketplace, traditional mindsets, systems and processes are no longer fit for purpose. This poses a challenge for large corporations that still run a supply chain on the industrial, mass production model. The systems they have to control inventory management, logistics, and supplier management are effectively set in stone, with little or no capacity to change and adjust.
Luckily, an array of emerging, rapidly-developing technologies can help companies re-engineer their operations, by giving them more timely, accurate, comprehensive and forward-looking information about their supply chain and improving their capability to cope with volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
