Managers working inside enterprises today face a curious conflict: while business systems provide more data than ever - a virtual flood of information - managers still lack actionable data about critical business processes and events. Managers of supply chains, in particular, struggle with the lack of useful timely data from their customers, suppliers, logistics providers, offshore operations, near shore finishing centers, and distribution networks. As a result, they are stuck in a reactive mode without the option of proactive corrective intervention. This problem prevents them from exploiting the data and turning the supply chain into a competitive advantage.
