It is possible for small businesses to have sophisticated high-value inventory capabilities by leveraging integrated, multi-function cloud-based technologies. Here we discuss how those solutions can provide visibility beyond the four walls of the enterprise and what capabilities to look for in a system.
Geospatial intelligence can help in optimizing service networks, defining feasible SLAs, optimal positioning of service resources (inventory, equipment, technicians), and continuous optimization of service jobs. In addition, geospatial intelligence can play an important role in enabling better failure analysis and predictive maintenance.
Small and medium manufacturers and wholesale distributors are trying to determine where IoT fits into their business strategies, within the constraints of limited budgets, inhouse expertise, bandwidth, and technical resources. This requires prioritizing many potential IoT initiatives. In part one of this two-part series, we look at three areas that manufacturers and distributors are implementing IoT: 1) on the plant floor, 2) in supply chain and logistics, and 3) in service and repair.
We explore what to look for when evaluating a Trade DaaS provider and some thoughts on getting started.
In most organizations, different types of trade data tend to be siloed in their own separate systems, only available for separate, narrow use cases. Trade DaaS allows trade data to be shared, delivered across the enterprise, directly to the various systems used daily by various functions across the company, right at the point they are making important relevant decisions.
Here we describe specific capabilities blockchain brings to a produce supply chain, such as tamper-resistance, automation/smart contracts, settlement, record of soft claims, auditability, and enabling uber-like spot markets. We also touch on why a permissioned blockchain is needed.
Logility’s recent acquisition of Halo represents an important step forward for the supply chain market.
We are rapidly approaching the 3rd decade in the 21st century. Is the singularity upon us? Autonomous robots and sensors. AI/analytics and IoT. What will these technologies along with the huge shift in worldwide population portend for our future? Will it be a world of insecurities and shortage or innovation and abundance?
At JDA Focus conference this year, we saw the launch of a major partnership program and innovations in many areas, such as category management and Flowcasting, and many more.
