Over the past two decades, the business world has been undergoing a period of very rapid and profound change and transformation driven by the emergence of new technologies and new business dynamics.
To survive and thrive today, companies – regardless of their size or industry – must be able to evolve, to embrace new technologies, to adapt to new ecosystems and new business models, to handle increasing expectations from customers and rising competition from new market players, and to operate at the highest levels of efficiency. Indeed, more and more companies are realizing that – in order to conquer the challenges and competition in their business environment – they need to change.
We are about to enter the age of autonomy, when companies will need to fundamentally change their business processes and practices in an effort to achieve supply chain digitalization, optimization, and automation. The key to this digital transformation is harnessing the power of new technologies – such as AI, advanced analytics, and machine learning – to process, analyze, and utilize data to drive optimized planning, decision making, and operations (that are aligned with company-specific KPIs and business goals).
The crucial questions are: How can companies achieve digital transformation and supply chain optimization in the age of autonomy? What are the steps they should take and what capabilities and technologies do they need?
