Understanding Supply Chain Management in the Cloud

The pandemic has brought the supply chain to the forefront in almost every industry. Supply chain disruptions have made the news, consumers have felt the pinch. Many businesses were forced to learn the importance of good supply chain management. Supply chain management is such an integral part of manufacturing and distribution that it can affect multiple areas of your business. 

Supply chain management can run (SCM) on-premises or in the cloud, but as technologies have modernized, cloud computing is a more natural fit. When disruptions occur, like we saw in the last 24 months, cloud gives you the ability to be flexible, without making major changes to your code and applications. Being able to be adaptable gives a business a fighting chance when unexpected issues arise. 

In today’s modern world, SCM in the cloud allows a business to make key Industry 4.0 upgrades. All your applications, from IoT sensors to AI analytics to SCM, run more efficiently when deployed in a dynamic cloud environment. To get the most value out of SCM, it should be integrated with your entire ecosystem, such as sales management, product management, production management, and customer relationship management (CRM). 

SCM will continue to evolve, especially as technology continues to get faster and smarter. Cloud SCM will give a business the ability to capture and analyze more information in greater detail. More processes will become automated, creating new opportunities for companies that can best build a connected organization.
