Future direction of Supply Chain Visibility

We all love the Best of 2012 Lists and Predictions for 2013. So as we prepare for 2013, I have been taking a look at the predictions for supply chain in 2013 including IDC’s Top Ten Predictions for 2013 Supply Chain and Supply Chain Management and Review’s Five Supply Chain Trends That Shaped 2012. Several topics are leading the look back and predictions including big data, visibility, visualization, virtualization, efficient and effective supply chains, cloud, mobile and communication and collaboration.

As an industry how do we take these predictions and put them in action for our customers and help them drive change and profitability.
