How Cloud Computing is Reinventing Supply Chain Management

In order to stay ahead of the inevitable elements of present-day technological landscape, organizations need to consider shifting from the traditional, linear supply chain models to smarter, digital supply chain networks.

Cloud helps organizations innovate processes at every level of their supply chain - from planning and sourcing to manufacturing, logistics, and distribution, gathering new insights for decision-making and automating activities. Cloud helps build stronger, smarter supply chains - enabling a connected, intelligent, scalable, and rapid supply chain which drives unprecedented visibility, resiliency, agility, and flexibility across businesses.

Among the myriad of technologies available today, cloud computing has emerged as a real game-changer for businesses to innovative Supply Chain Management (SCM), rapidly and efficiently. Here are few ways how;

Connected supply chain

By leveraging structured and unstructured data generated across the supply chain, cloud solutions improve the connectivity of the supply chain network. This helps companies to easily connect with their suppliers, vendors, and customers. Cloud also facilitates dynamic provisioning, multi-tenancy, improved server utilization, and datacenter efficiency. Benefits include;

  • Real-time visibility
  • Seamless collaboration
  • Next-gen operating models

Intelligent supply chain

    The cognitive intelligence and predictive analytics offered by cloud computing help organizations gain right information for decision-making, at the right time. While intelligence enables proactive decision-making ‘on the go,’ the analytics help spot potential risks. Cloud offers actionable insights that make digital supply chains intelligent. Benefits include;

    • Reduced disruption mitigation time
    • Improved automation
    • Enhanced innovation

    Scalable supply chain

    As cloud-based solutions operate on a flexible, usage-based model, the network, storage, and capacity needed across the supply chain can be scaled up or down as per customer demands and market conditions. Benefits includes;

    • Maximum efficiency
    • Enterprise-level flexibility
    • Improved customer experience
    • Optimized costs

    Rapid supply chain

    With cloud computing, businesses can now operate their supply chain models at speed – successfully in a volatile market. It enables faster planning and execution resulting in reduced time to market. By moving to the cloud, organizations can gain better access to resources and information, enhancing flexibility and responsiveness to market conditions. Benefits includes;
