Synchrono Discusses Data Driven Visibility and the Next Revolution in Supply Chain Management

John Maher, Vice President of Product Strategy for Synchrono, is a well-respected supply chain thought leader and Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know. Recently Maher corroborated the findings of The Clear Peak Supply Chain Advisory Council survey. The group of practitioners from industry and academia that make up the Council are driven to encourage the advancement and deployment of a more connected supply chain through management action, technology, and analytics. The council conducted a survey of supply chain experts on the importance of supply chain visibility to next-generation supply chain management (SCM).

Maher shared, “Supply chain visibility is transforming how manufacturers communicate and collaborate. The applications for the technologies are endless. The Synchrono whitepaper, ‘E2E Supply Chain Visibility Technology is Here,’ aligns with the Clear Peak findings.”

The survey explored the drivers of supply chain visibility, such as predictive analytics and demand visibility, security concerns, and emerging technologies, including automated delivery systems and 3D printing. It also collected data on the impacts of enhanced visibility on supply chain demand, transportation, manufacturing, distribution and warehousing and suppliers.

“The supply chain visibility revolution impacts every company,” noted Margaret Tedlie, leader of Clear Peak’s supply chain practice and chair of its Supply Chain Advisory Council. “It’s hitting some like a freight train, and it’s sneaking up quietly on others. But all must reckon with it, and harness it.”
