Key insights

  • Global manufacturers are increasing transaction activity to take advantage of growth opportunities in global markets, while reassessing operations and product portfolios to control costs.
  • Companies are viewing their channel partners as more of a 'network' which is critical to achieving a 'demand-driven' supply chain, i.e. one that provides a real-time view to total demand, supply, and capacity information.
  • Visibility is the new watchword in supply chain optimisation and a major opportunity for many companies.
