Is There a Third Option for SCM Executives Looking to Revamp their Supply Chain Management Operations?

Kinaxis

Consulting firms deliver strategy and process improvements, but leave the customer to execute and sustain the new process, while software companies sell new supply chain capabilities without executing and driving its adoption.

Supply Chain @ MIT

People Plus Technology: Maximize the Value of Your TMS Investment

TMC

Have you heard about companies investing a lot of money, time, and resources to implement a transportation management system (TMS), only to have to shelve the system later because the ongoing savings or efficiencies weren’t meeting expectations? While the software as a service (SaaS) model is helping reduce the time and effort that goes into implementing these systems, even the most sophisticated TMS technology is ineffective without the right talent behind it.

How a Profession Went From Zero to Hero

Supply Chain @ MIT

Supply chain management (SCM) is no longer the Rodney Dangerfield of corporate functions.

Mapping the Next Milestones in the Supply Chain

Oracle SCM

When we look back at 2015, one of the biggest themes has been how supply chain has embraced the Cloud. Some parts of the supply chain are inherently more Cloud-friendly than others; for example, those areas that are more used to sharing supply chain data with external organizations. Yet the success of Cloud implementations elsewhere in the supply chain points the way to a future where it becomes a fundamental part of SCM strategy.
