Webinar: Combining data and tools to enhance supply chain visibility

Recording from 30 January 2019 below

Access to data is no longer the challenge to business that it once was. Instead, supply chain managers are asking: “Now what?” The next hurdle is to integrate this data into a systematic framework to guide the next steps in the risk management process.

Is there a magic combination that can easily assess the hundreds of risks multinationals with complex supply chains now face?

Given the plethora of open and closed sources of data that are available, the first challenge for companies integrating data is making sure they have the best or most appropriate information for their business’ strategic aims. Their second challenge is the exploding sophistication of tools available to filter the data and gain valuable insight. Listen to the joint webinar with Supply Shift where we explore these challenges.
