Intelligent, Automated Supply Chains

Modern supply chains are built on three principles: dynamic, connected, intelligent. A landscape of technologies will embody these principles.

The complexity of the supply chain is only increasing as a result of shifting economics, distribution, and consumer demands. Meanwhile, the rise of data presents new opportunities for efficiency and profitability. To date, our industry has been technically ill-equipped to handle these complexities but the future of the supply chain is about data intelligence over scale. For this, an AI operating system is required to reach true predictive logistics and attain truly intelligent global trade.  

Data Challenge

Companies are spending millions on logistics and supply chain visibility but few have ways to harness the data generated to improve profitability. The big question facing supply chain executives is how the wealth of data will be used to improve efficiency, build tomorrow’s supply chain, and outpace the competition. To seize the full potential of today’s big data environment, companies must develop new strategies, equip themselves with cutting-edge technologies, and leverage a platform that offers true data intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence Delivers Dynamic Automation

The promise of AI is dynamic automation across the supply chain and enterprise. Through AI we can understand the past, the present, and future state of supply chains with unparalleled speed and scalability. ClearMetal applies AI technology to data management, event interpretation, and the generation of predictive intelligence. These areas are the foundation of supply chain decision support and automated execution. This foundation is also the AI operating system upon which new solutions can be developed and new efficiency gained. Because supply chains are no longer steady state but dynamic networks, businesses will use data science and automation to understand more, proactively plan, and execute against new opportunities. Companies that gather, manage, and leverage data as a core strategy will gain competitive advantage, differentiated customer service, and profitability. Agility will be inherent and data intelligence will be a strategic, corporate objective.
