Today’s Supply Chains can be largely disconnected, often have poor visibility into the location and status of raw materials, parts or even finished goods, and lack a secure, reliable way to share this information across participants. 5G, IoT and Web 3.0 offer opportunities to address these issues, enabling enterprises to better forecast demand, respond to Supply Chain incidents and provide enhanced customer care.
Designing and implementing emerging solutions can be a challenge for many organizations who may lack the time, expertise, available staffing or tools required to get the job done.
In this session, participants will learn how to take advantage of emerging technologies for better instrumentation and availability of real-time Supply Chain information.
