Today’s marketplace is fueled by a surge in online purchases. As a result, retail enterprises require supply chain distribution systems that adopt best-practices in visual analysis to drive success. This will shield them from sudden shifts in consumer preferences and behavior, long lead-times, and short product lifecycles. In other words, they will gain the capability to shrink the gap between their products and customer expectations substantially. And this is where, ‘Zero Distance’ from Infosys plays a key role.
Jeff Huckaby and Anil Pahwa elaborate on how top supply chain organizations are using analytics to address challenges in:
- Sourcing performance and risk mitigation
- Raw material procurement
