New ARC Advisory Group research reveals that more and more companies are embracing the idea that digitally transforming their enterprise is key to competitiveness in the market. When it comes to digitally transforming the end-to-end supply chain, few solutions would be more important than Supply Chain Planning (SCP). Companies want to be customer-centric while reducing their costs. The key solutions in supply chain planning are demand forecasting/inventory optimization, supply planning, and network design. The supply chain planning software market grew at a double-digit rate over the last several years, even during the pandemic. It is unusual for a mature, multibillion dollar market to grow so fast.
"Business professionals talk about ‘agility’ and ‘resilience’ as if they are the same thing. They are not. A company with an agile supply chain can react quickly to big increases or decreases in demand. An agile company is like a half back in football that can dart quickly to the left or the right depending upon the opening. A resilient company is like a boxer that can take hard punches and keep on battling. In short, agility helps you to maximize upside potential, resilience is preferred if you want to minimize downside risk," according to Steve Banker, Research Director and key author of ARC's Supply Chain Planning (SCP) Market Research Report.
