Optimization in and of itself is nothing new but it is
often overlooked by Line of Business and Information Technology
professionals since many instances of it are embedded inside "classic
supply chain management applications". Optimization allows companies to
make sense of the massive amounts of data across the extended
enterprise. By applying this data in unique and innovative ways, firms
can optimize business outcomes by anticipating, controlling and adapting
to a dynamically changing and chaotic environment, using the insights
from visibility, analytics and trading partner collaboration to direct
and control operations more intelligently.
With the advent of "Optimization 3.0", firms now have the ability to layer or integrate key advanced analytics technology on top of existing supply chain planning and execution systems to support both long-term (strategic) and short-term (tactical) planning goals as well as detailed scheduling while continuously improving operational efficiency, reducing costs and ultimately enhancing the overall customer fulfillment experience. This new combination of State-of-the-Art advanced analytics and B2B integration gives businesses the unprecedented ability to quickly model and solve across the most complex systems and implement solutions in near real-time, creating truly adaptive supply chains.
