Supply chain management is a critical aspect of business as it allows manufacturers to make enough products to meet market demand. It is essential as it reduces excess inventory and the cost of storing products. Effective supply chain management ultimately improves customer satisfaction, reduces business costs and optimizes profit. When operating cost decreases without affecting customer satisfaction, the business has a healthy profit.

“When it comes to this kind of digital transformation, it is best to look at it holistically. Many organizations are interested in delivering incremental gradual value as they move in to digital transformation. So, I would recommend to any organization transforming to technology to identify specific business outcomes they want to achieve. Technology is only an aspect that includes organizational adjustments and change as well as business processes adjustments. To be able to leverage these emerging technologies, there is a need for new business processes and different ways of looking at the business structure,” explained Aksut.
