Traditional supply chain practices will not be able to serve demands of the 21st-century economy. Leaders are not satisfied with “best practices”, they are demanding “better” and indeed, “better now”. We at HCL, see the next-generation supply chain as must-be-digital that delivers the goals of an interconnected, intelligent and Instrumented supply chain. Moore’s law is accelerating the future.
The 21st century supply chain is enabled by intelligent machines and devices, advanced computational techniques, differentiating models of creating-consuming-sharing-securing data. This is turn, enables people, processes, products, and infrastructure to seamlessly coordinate, collaborate, make, buy, and sell goods that are more time - and cost-efficient to deliver significantly enhanced value and experience to customers and receive feedback transparently.
