Investing Wisely in Disruptive Technologies to Analyze, Cleanse, and Manage Your Distribution Data

Currently accepted ways of managing and using your supply chain data are inefficient, expensive, and slow, including traditional Analytics and Business Intelligence tools. Many supply chain executives have challenges in getting access to their data in real-time and effectively using this data. They can also be distracted by expensive and unproven technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and the promise of a seamless end to end global supply chain that have limited application in a distribution operation. In the current economic climate, investing your time and money wisely is critical. A lack of understanding of the design of the technology managing your distribution data can lead executives to invest in expensive and overly-complex technologies. Software designed to manage your operational data from generation to visualization provides a powerful solution to manage your distribution operation in real-time at a much more affordable investment and shorter time to results.
