Intelligent Supply Chain: ready for anything

A new catalyst for change.

Supply chains across the world have never known anything like it. This year has seen sharp reduction in demand in some areas, and massive surges in others. Making predictions has been difficult. Dealing with it all has been harder still.

So it’s no surprise that in a report from the Capgemini Research Institute, 66% of organizations said their supply chain strategy would have to change significantly. In turn, this means that the need to adopt new technologies has, if anything, intensified.

Intelligent Supply Chain: frictionless, flexible, and robust.

It’s not just about technology, though. It’s about bringing the right tools together with streamlined processes in a strategy that’s smart, flexible, and robust.

At Capgemini, we call this the Intelligent Supply Chain. It’s an approach that’s built around the SAP S/4HANA digital core, and that both integrates and extends core business processes via integrated building blocks or LOB (Line of Business) solutions. It includes the SAP IBP (Integrated Business Planning) suite of applications, which sits on a cloud-based HANA database and serves as the supply chain planning hub.

This comprehensive, smart and agile approach is the result of focused teamwork. Capgemini SAP Center of Excellence, the SAP Innovation Centre, Capgemini Business Services and Capgemini Invent, our digital innovation, consulting and transformation global business line, have worked hard to bring together every stage in the supply chain, from production to consumption, in a truly frictionless enterprise.

So you can adapt quickly – to everything from competitor developments to global market upheavals.
