The reverberation of clouds is heard in the world of technology for 20 years. On the other hand: companies are looking for cutting-edge practices improving the cost and operational efficiency of their supply chain.
The cloud enables organizations to innovate processes at all stages of their supply chain, from planning and sourcing to manufacturing, logistics, and distribution. It generates new insights for decision-making and automates activities. The cloud optimizes enterprises by providing infrastructure, platform, and software solutions for the entire supply chain network via the Internet.
Using IoT devices in the supply chain manages massive amounts of data and distributed edge networks. The incorporation of automation and robotics into supply chains ensures network continuity and security.
Cloud makes it easier for businesses to communicate with their suppliers, vendors, and customers. It also enables dynamic provisioning, multi-tenancy, increased server utilization, and data center efficiency.
Continuously changing the demand of the marketplace and meeting the expectations of each customer has become challenging tasks for enterprises. Moreover, consumers started buying more online and preferred contactless purchases. Advanced analytics, in conjunction with big data offers novel approaches to supply chain decisions. It enabled organizations to deliver the product of customer’s choice
GeoAnalytics is a feature of cloud computing that allows Supply Chain Management professionals to monitor delivery networks, identify bottlenecks, and prioritize slower-moving shipments.
Why should the supply chain adopt cloud technology?
Reduction of costs: According to a recent market research study, 72% of business executives see cost reduction as the primary reason for investing in cloud-based tools. As cloud-based tools don’t necessitate an upfront capital investment in hardware, the decision becomes one of capital versus operational expenditures.
Downtime reduction: Technical failures can occur at any point along the supply chain, and downtime is costly (most businesses estimate that downtime costs between $300,000 and $400,000 per hour). The cloud also enables Supply Chain Management professionals to easily see where the malfunction occurred to prevent it from happening again.
Scalability: As a company expands, it generally requires IT systems that can keep up. Cloud computing reduces the efforts of supply chain management to rebuild the system or purchase additional compute power.
Security: The cloud keeps your most sensitive data secure, visible only to those you trust, immutable to prevent fraud, and safe from third-party risk, which saves you from loss of money, damage of reputation, and gives you control over many cybercrimes.
Cloud computing promotes the development of more secure, robust intellectual supply chains.
