This RSR custom research report explores the impact of omnichannel methods on merchandising, marketing and the supply chain; specifically, what analytical capabilities address the challenges that omnichannel selling and fulfillment pose for retailers. Consumers today routinely begin their shopping journeys online, but complete their purchases in nearby stores, in their “home” stores or delivered directly to their doors. Retail analytics enables organizations to capture data from their customers' journeys. Retailers that successfully deliver relevant omnichannel experiences while gaining a more sophisticated understanding of demand (where and how it is initiated) will enhance their brands’ value and create compelling and profitable customer relationships.

With decisions riding on the timeliness and quality of analytics, business stakeholders are less patient with delays in the development of new applications that provide reports, analysis, and access to diverse data itself. Executives, managers, and frontline personnel fear that decisions based on old and incomplete data or formulated using slow, outmoded, and limited reporting functionality will be bad decisions. A deficient information supply chain hinders quick responses to shifting situations and increases exposure to financial and regulatory risk—putting a business at a competitive disadvantage. Stakeholders are demanding better access to data, faster development of business intelligence (BI) and analytics applications, and agile solutions in sync with requirements.

The most recent decade has seen rapid advances in connectivity, mobility, analytics, scalability, and data, spawning what has been called the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0. This fourth industrial revolution has digitalized operations and resulted in transformations in manufacturing efficiency, supply chain performance, product innovation, and in some cases enabled entirely new business models. This transformation should be top of mind for quality leaders, as quality improvement and monitoring are among the top use cases for Industry 4.0. Quality 4.0 is closely aligning quality management with Industry 4.0 to enable enterprise efficiencies, performance, innovation and business models. However, much of the market isn’t focusing on Quality 4.0, since many quality teams are still trying to solve yesterday’s problems: inefficiency caused by fragmented systems, manual metrics calculations, quality teams independently performing quality work with minimal cross-functional own

The Internet of Things enables retailers to do three basics better and faster: 1) Sensing who customers are and what they’re doing, 2) Understanding customer behavior and preferences, and 3)Acting on that insight to create a more engaging customer experience. - There are high-potential IoT applications in supply chain, in “smart store” operations, and especially in providing an engaging experience to the “connected customer.” IoT data can anticipate where the customer is headed and how to meet her there. - Much of the IoT ground, in both data management and analytics, may be unfamiliar. Retailers and their IT organizations have to be realistic about the technological challenges, their own capabilities, and where they need assistance. - To differentiate through IoT, focus on the analytics. Devices and their data — and even their platforms — are commodities. Advantage goes to the retailer who does the most with the data to engage the connected customer.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly emerging as a core transformational technology of the digital era. The ability to gather data from sensors embedded throughout an enterprise can drive insights and operational efficiencies from the supply chain to the customer. But IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) implementations require high degrees of IT/OT convergence - collaboration and integration between information technology and operational technology groups - to succeed. These two groups, however, often have different goals, performance metrics, and perspectives on both the collaboration and the outcome. This SAS/HPE-sponsored paper helps readers get a better understanding of the relationship, either real or perceived, between these two groups. Futurum Research surveyed the state of the relationship between IT and OT teams as it pertains to the design, implementation, and creation of value through IoT technologies.

Starting data governance initiatives can seem a bit daunting. You’re establishing strategies and policies for data assets. And, you’re committing the organization to treat data as a corporate asset, on par with its buildings, its supply chain, its employees or its intellectual property. However, as Jill Dyché and Evan Levy have noted, data governance is a combination of strategy and execution. It’s an approach that requires one to be both holistic and pragmatic: • Holistic. All aspects of data usage and maintenance are taken into account in establishing the vision. • Pragmatic. Political challenges and cross-departmental struggles are part of the equation. So, the tactical deployment must be delivered in phases to provide quick “wins” and avert organizational fatigue from a larger, more monolithic exercise. To accomplish this, data governance must touch all internal and external IT systems and establish decision-making mechanisms that transcend organizational silos. And, it must provi

Facing increasing customer demands for equipment uptime and rapid service response, many companies servicing critical equipment and machinery are turning to on-customer-site spare parts inventory strategies. To maximize the benefits of this approach, leading companies are 'reverse engineering' their service chains to build restocking plans and manage performance based on parts consumption, not distribution, patterns.

With the cost of manufacturing in China escalating, companies are increasingly looking to Southeast Asia for an alternative to meet their outsource manufacturing needs. Emerging as the leading alternative to China, Vietnam is now a destination choice for outsource manufacturing due to the unique financial advantages it can provide companies, including those in high-tech segments such as medical and commercial aerospace. In addition to lowering total costs, Vietnam offers companies a larger labor force, strong IP protection, and reliable quality in the manufacturing process, among other benefits. Moving their contract manufacturing to Vietnam can provide companies an excellent foundation for long-term profits and sustained growth.

Supply Chain Insights in their study found that more than 80% of the companies they surveyed had an S&OP process. However, most companies have varying levels of maturity with it, and hence, very mixed results. The starting point to building a roadmap for a mature and successful S&OP process is to assess your current process. Gartner’s Maturity Model provides a very good mechanism for it.
