Future-proofing the supply chain

Everest Group’s perspective on building resilience and agility in supply chain management through digital transformation

COVID-19 has caused disruptions to global supply chains on an unprecedented scale. While some businesses were prepared to deal with the impact, many were not prepared. Nevertheless, the pandemic has made clear that uncertainties and disruptions are likely to become more frequent in Supply Chain Management (SCM). The challenge for organizations is not merely to mitigate risk, but to future-proof their supply chains.

A future-proofed supply chain incorporates some key characteristics such as resilience and agility, and digital technologies also play a critical role: organizations can leverage digital technologies to enable end-to-end visibility, dynamic operations, and process integration to future-proof SCM. Further, they can accelerate their achievement of future-proofed SCM by working with third-party providers.
