The Value of Supply Chain Technology

Industrial Analytics Give Manufacturers Immediate Value

According to a recent Gartner® report, “Supporting digital supply chain transformation with the use of emerging technologies remains a top-funded initiative for supply chain organizations.”

  • By 2028, 25% of supply chain KPI reporting will be powered by GenAI models.
  • Only 10% of companies believe that technology is not a source of competitive advantage.
  • Nearly one-third of respondents to a Gartner survey2 said that technology is critical to the success and growth of their business.
  • With 34% of respondents identifying improving decision-making speed, quality and robustness as one of the top three goals driving their investments in emerging/new technologies, this supports the prediction that GenAI will play a major role in supply chain solutions over the next few years.

Gartner identified four major areas of emerging technology investment:

Addressing rising labor costs and labor shortages by supplementing, enhancing or replacing humans with technology and automation that can perform tasks independently.

Leveraging technology to make better, faster and more enlightened decisions.

Looking at technology architectures that blend the value of applications in the cloud with the responsiveness and performance of technologies sitting at the edge.

Addressing cyber risks associated with digital and cyber-physical systems prevalent in supply chain organizations today.
