Top 10 Supply Chain Solution Companies - 2021

The supply chain sector was one of the most affected by the pandemic, but it is quickly recovering and adapting as organizations reinvent and augment their processes with emerging technologies. The integration of these technologies is enabling organizations to adapt to the new normal, facilitating greater traceability, transparency, and visibility, while also improving the end-to-end performance.

Especially, the incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) is enabling them to reduce the human factor and evolve according to the requirements of the new normal. It is also enabling supply chain teams to take control of the data and derive insights seamlessly. Notably, AI is solving longstanding challenges around data silos and governance by bringing a higher level of visibility and integration across disparate areas of the supply chain.

IoT is also making waves in the supply chain landscape. It is helping businesses to maximize their control over their supply chain operations and optimize the entire range of operations. The sensors leveraged in IoT are also being used to gather critical data and draw insights. Moreover, with predictive analytics, organizations are using the collected data to derive value and use that information to optimize their decision-making processes.

Supply chain organizations are also benefiting from adding a layer of continuous intelligence. By integrating real-time analytics into their business operations, supply chain teams are accelerating the digital transformation of their organizations. By combining data analytics systems with edge computing, organizations are analyzing the data at collection points. This is becoming especially useful when there is an exigent need for low-latency processing and real-time decision making.
