One of the greatest supply chain challenges that companies face is to reliably and profitably meet global demand. Outsourced manufacturing, lengthy global supply chains, a large number of suppliers, and volatile demand all create an environment where supply chain decision-makers worry that they can't deliver on promises they've made.
But companies with a strong assurance of supply program have confidence in their ability to fulfill demand. They're able to make dynamic, data-driven changes in the execution stage to counter disruption and volatility. These decisions are made possible by cloud-based supply chain technology.
