Perfect order fulfillment requires companies to have seamless integration of all supply chain execution (SCE) including, logistics processes from manufacturing, transportation, warehouse, global trade to mobile and RFID. Recent research from Gartner reveals that most supply chain organizations continue to operate as functional silos – warehousing, transportation and manufacturing – with minimal, if any, process integration and synchronization between execution silos. The Gartner Research report provides key insights into how supply chain and IT leaders can transform logistics by breaking down functional silos, and designing business processes that span, optimize and synchronize across traditional functional domains.

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.

For nearly two decades, analysts, journalists, and industry experts have warned manufacturers about the consequences of a disconnect between the shop floor (the production line) and the top floor (senior management up to C-suite). With all that has been written on the subject, it's surprising that few manufacturers have even tried to connect the shop floor to the top floor to enhance the extended supply chain.

Virtually every organization understands that its successful operation depends on the continuous availability of its applications. Most companies rely on internal applications-ranging from enterprise resource planning to payroll systems-to keep the wheels of their enterprise turning. They also depend on external-facing applications for everything from selling products to their customers to automating the supply chain with suppliers and partners. The failure of any of these mission-critical applications could be catastrophic to a business.

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
