Unlocking the Value of AI in Supply Chain

Arun Krishnamoorthy – VP, Supply chain Practice – BRIDGEi2i engages in discussion with Innovation Evangelist and the Global VP of SAP Labs, Tom Raftery, on the Digital Supply Chain Podcast. Arun takes us down memory lane as he explains tech’s evolution in supply chains over the past decades. He elaborates how ERP technology was adopted in the early 70s based on the computational power available at that time. The 80s saw workflows being operationalized, and by the 90s, the advent of planning systems and demand forecasting systems had caused many advancements. The 2000s saw data warehouses being created and used as business intelligence picked up. In the current landscape, supply chains are an outcome of big data, machine learning and artificial technologies. Arun also illustrates some client use cases and talks about the impact numbers.
