While I was on the phone the other day, the person on the other end of the line asked me about the state of the global supply chain, why it’s in such disarray and what’s being done about it. Although I was excited to hear this question about a topic so important to me, it did come from an unexpected place.
I’ve known this person for decades, and it’s been quite a while since those two words in a row – “supply” and “chain” – came up in conversation. The person on the phone was my mother. My mom was asking me about global supply chains. Before answering, I thought to myself, “Well, supply chain is mainstream now!” It struck me in this conversation that everyone has concerns and questions about the supply chain.
The environment is difficult out there, with several issues colliding at once. Some key factors impacting progress include:
At Accenture, we are partnering with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to solve these challenges with our clients. First, organizations are asking us to help reimagine their supply chains. Second, businesses need help to build them. After all, these supply chain systems are so complex that single entities simply cannot do it on their own. Third, companies want to develop their supply chains while considering sustainability as well as simplification for their customers, themselves and the planet. That’s why we take a human-centered and data-driven approach that encourages our people and clients to continuously create and innovate.
This approach is framed by three main dimensions that make up what we call the Intelligent Supply Chain:
Together, we are employing leading technology capabilities, such as Amazon SageMaker, Amazon Forecast and AWS Data Exchange, to address some of the most important use cases across the supply chain operating reference (SCOR) model. These solutions can be tailored at both the industry and sub-industry levels to tackle the unique challenges our joint clients face.
Consider these examples:
Powered by cloud, our partnership with AWS allows us to unlock more value faster for companies by combining our capabilities to help the world’s supply chain get back on its feet.
