Welcome to our winter 2019–2020 edition of Innovation Nation. This edition focuses on Capgemini’s Digital Supply Chain offer – and our five sub-offers of Demand Planning, Master Data Management, Order Management, Logistics Control Tower, and Procurement Operations. It also shares insights from our experts across finance and accounting (F&A), human resources (HR), and intelligent automation.
“The digitization of the supply chain is one of the major value and growth opportunities for businesses today, with the potential to make a significant difference to their performance and future prospects,” stated a recent Capgemini Research Institute report entitled “The Digital Supply Chain’s Missing Link: Focus.”
With this in mind, Dharmendra Patwardhan (Global Head of Capgemini’s Digital Supply Chain Practice) talks to Innovation Nation about how Capgemini’s Digital Supply Chain offer represents a unique and multifaceted supply chain solution that is delivering enhanced business outcomes and industry-first commitments around cash, cost, and service to our clients around the globe. In addition, Dharmendra curates a selection of articles written by his team on the five sub-offers that comprise our Digital Supply Chain.
In our Technology Talk section, Carole Murphy (Global Head of the Finance Powered by Intelligent Automation Practice) also writes about how our ESOAR transformation methodology is creating a platform to help our clients implement intelligent automation. Kishor Wikhe (Chief Operating Officer) writes about how delivering benefits to the Capgemini Group’s finance and HR functions enhances the service we deliver to our clients as they embark on their own journeys of automation and digital transformation.
Aarti Srivastava (Global Head of HR) talks to Innovation Nation about how the cultural shift to prepare the organization for an augmented, future-ready workforce, while developing our people to understand and leverage new technology and advance their careers in a future-oriented way. We also hear from our HR center heads in India, Guatemala, and China on how they are helping our people to develop their knowledge and skills for the digital age.
As usual, our dogged cast of experts have been unrelenting in their pursuit of quality thought leadership, writing on topics from machine learning to design thinking, order-to-cash to achieving a fast close, and contracting for agile. The edition concludes with digital inclusion stories from our people in India and Poland.
I really hope you find the insight and thinking behind our thought leadership in this edition as interesting and exciting as I do! As always, most of the articles in this issue are available on our website, and we welcome you to share your opinion and views online.
