In the digital Industry 4.0 era, traditional supply chain models must evolve. For starters, supply chains are not linear today; in fact, they have not been linear for a while. Supply chains are often a network of interconnected entities that involve businesses, physical and virtual systems, and people – all conspiring to deliver raw material as finished goods.

The better the supply chain is, the more competitive an organization can be. The better it is able to strategically integrate a modern supply chain model into its operations, the more
successful it is. And it leans on technology to help navigate the myriad complexities of supply chains.

This white paper highlights modern technology strategies – integration platforms, blockchain, robotic process automation and the IoT – that help today’s highly evolved supply chain meet increasing challenges from the industries that they serve. For each strategy, there is also a case story from our clients.
