The current business environment can be characterized by constant change, shorter product lifecycles, and increased demand uncertainty. As these conditions have become the norm, companies and researchers alike have turned to the concept of agility in their quest for a sustainable source of competitive advantage.
Consequently, supply chain agility has emerged as the dominant competitive vehicle for organizations operating in such an uncertain and ever-changing business environment.
The digitization of data and the application of automation technology presents the opportunity to drive business value throughout the global supply chain.
In its realized state, a digital supply chain will enable you to reduce costs, minimize risk, enhance visibility and improve agility. Of these, surveys indicate agility as the primary value derived from digitization.
