Achieving end-to-end Supply Chain Visibility

Today’s competitive business landscape and ever evolving customer demands are re-shaping traditional supply chains. First and foremost, Globalization is increasing supply chain complexity, as physical supply chains extend their geographic scope in order to leverage low cost sourcing options and gain access to emerging markets. The movement of manufacturing facilities near to the key markets is also increasing supply chain complexity. And, outsourcing is taking the supply chain outside the four walls of an organization meaning collaboration with partners becomes imperative for supply chain effectiveness. In addition to the complexities brought by globalization there is continuing pressure in most organizations to increase revenues and profit margins. These critical business challenges are driving the need to focus on creating strong end-to-end Supply Chain Visibility capabilities.
