Our speakers kick-started the session by highlighting the fall in customer levels during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. They also cited a few examples to validate their argument. They highlighted the crisis and challenges around the supply chain, such as lack of resilience, increasing cost of operations,  unsustainable practices, impact of human errors, lack of personalization, and the complex technology landscape. Finally, they opined that supply chains form a big piece of the jigsaw puzzle that will help restore consumers’ confidence in brands.

Interactive Session

Connected Data: The Foundation of a Resilient Supply Chain

Sunder Balakrishnan
Director, Supply Chain Practice
Hylke Visser
Director, Neo4j
Our speakers shared their experiences and insights on how a connected supply chain ecosystem powered by “Connected Data” can help companies break down silos, quicken decision-making, improve resilience, as well as standardize & scale operations & technologies.

The takeaways from the roundtable were clear:

Customer experience levels worldwide have fallen drastically, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, with supply chains becoming increasingly complex, companies need help maintaining a balance between high customer service levels & excessive inventories.
The fundamental underlying problem is a disconnected supply chain with data silos and the inability to connect one event or risk in the supply chain with other risks affecting the supply chain’s resilience, agility, and responsiveness.
