Whitepaper: 7 Ways to Address the Gaping Data Security Hole in Your Supply Chain

by GT NexusAug 01, 2015

The fast-emerging Chief Data Officer role is the authority on all things data management and data governance. The challenge has been that different departments store their own data independently, with their own policies and tools, including practices for data distribution. With the rise of big data investments, combined with a string of high profile data breaches at some of the biggest company names in the world, data is front and center. Data security is a top priority within the enterprise. Rightfully so. But a major area of business remains overlooked and unaddressed when it comes to data security: the supply chain.

Whitepaper: Creating a Common Foundation for the Agile Supply Chain

by GT NexusMar 13, 2015

Today's supply chains are anything but simple. Made up of hundreds of partners spanning continents and oceans, they contain a bewildering number of moving parts. Disruptions—like strikes, natural disasters, economic sanctions, etc.—can bring a supply chain to its knees. Even normal market fluctuations in demand, particularly of today's volatile sort, can cripple a business.

Since transportation is businesses' highest indirect cost, making it agile can create a strong foundation for the whole supply chain. Brand new global TMS technology is enabling just that.

Customer experience is critical to today's supply chains. Unique supply chain needs require detailed attention. In scenarios where disruptions occurring within a silo impact on-time delivery, companies want to be proactive. The more proactive a company is, the better chance it has of preserving the customer experience. Creating a global connected view means knowing what is happening much further up the chain, so better decisions can be made. A platform approach to transportation management and a network community model operating on this foundation are key to reducing transportation spend while at the same time driving improvements in customer experience.
