I published a post about this podcast on Reddit's Supply Chain subreddit recently and a commenter on my post asked me to do an episode on End-toEnd visibility in Supply Chains. I hadn't done an episode on end to end visibility, so I thought, "Why not?"I asked around for someone who could speak knowledgeably about this topic and Vishnu Arcot came highly recommended. I reached out to him and he graciously agreed to come on the show to talk about it. Vishnu is Chief Strategist, Digital Supply Chain at SAP, as well as having served a stint as a Consultant for BCG for a number of years and he has an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management.We had a great chat about visibility, and at the end of our conversation, we answered a question sent in by listener and colleague Richard Howells.Now we are in June, I am trialling a new feature on the podcast - listeners stories. If you have a cool supply chain story you'd like featured on the show, send it to me via email (tom.raftery @, or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn. Audio messages will get played (unless you specifically ask me not to).To learn more about how supply chain leaders improve end-to-end supply chain visibility, download the research study of 1,000 COO’s and Chief Supply Chain Officers – “Surviving and Thriving How Supply Chain Leaders minimize risk and maximize opportunities” And if you want to know more about any of SAP's Digital Supply Chain solutions, head on over to and if you liked this show, please don't forget to rate and/or review it. It makes a big difference to help new people discover it. Thanks.And remember, stay healthy, stay safe, stay sane!
