Digitization remains a prevailing topic in discussions of supply chain leaders. Recent reports made by leading consulting companies (GT Nexus together with Capgemini, PwC, BCG) have affirmed that digital transformation of supply chain is important and perceived by organizations as a door opener to new opportunities and business models.
While organizations started the race to their digital future, the same reports have revealed current opinions on the early race phases results. As GT Nexus research shows, only 5% of respondents are “very satisfied” with the progress of digital transformation in supply chain. Saying short, the progress has been slow so far.
To complete this race with success, the organizations have to clear out certain bumps on the road:
A multiplicity of systems and IT landscape complexity across subsidiaries with misaligned reporting and data;
Few, if any, standard processes;
Inconsistencies and redundant custom code in existing applications;
Lack of process visibility;
Little or no meaningful performance metrics;
As the sources and quantity of data grows, business become more inefficient, less agile and increasingly difficult to manage.
