Untangling the Retail Supply Chain with Real-Time Analytics

Too many knots in the supply chain can be a noose for your business. Real-time data analytics is the great fix for all those knots according to Dale Skeen. There are three major reasons why Skeen views analytics as such a problem solver:

  1. End-to-end visibility and coordination throughout the supply chain
  2. Integration between multi-channel supply chains for traditional stores and online businesses
  3. Managed fluctuations in demand

The larger a firm becomes, the more partners it takes on in its supply chain, and the more possibilities for oversights that start to exist. Real-time analytics give clear data on variables that would otherwise go unnoticed. They also provide the possibility for an integrated omni-channel experience for customers who shop both online and in-store. Lastly, historical data stops being the only means of estimating demand fluctuations when new data is constantly incoming.
