Brief Description:
  • Modern supply chains are complex entities — spanning multiple geographies, customers, and vendors — and running them effectively requires synchronization across several systems and data sources. Recently, supply chain control towers have emerged as solutions to the problem of providing end-to-end visibility and alerting mechanisms to managers. However, when combined with big data analytics, they can transform from being visibility and calculation-only tools to fast and effective interpretation mechanisms to drive specific actions in the supply chain. Showcasing applications from a variety of industries and supply chain functions, this course will explain how supply chain organizations can overcome technology and organizational barriers to achieve success through control towers and big data analytics.
