Enable smarter supply chain planning

In the wake of the pandemic, 93% of organizations have faced challenges associated with erratic demand. As static planning based on historical demand becomes increasingly irrelevant, supply chain leaders must find ways to continuously plan in real time by using new sources of data to sense changes in demand as they occur. With industry-specific AI models and proprietary data sources available only from IBM, we can help you to automate the right parts of your workflows to drive a shift from reactive to proactive planning. By following this approach, some IBM clients have increased forecast accuracy by 30 percent and decreased lost sales by 60 percent.¹
