Technology is enabling supply chain organizations to gather enormous amounts of information from an expanding variety of sources. But few companies are actually deriving sustainable value from the supply chain data they are accumulating. Instead, they are struggling with issues such as how to ensure data quality, how to analyze data, and how to make practical use of what they learn from it.
CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly, Arizona State University, Colorado State University, Competitive Insights LLC, and lharrington group LLC are conducting an annual survey on the current state of supply chain Big Data Analytics. The survey will also allow us to track, in the aggregate, companies’ progress in using Big Data Analytics in supply chain management.
The survey is anonymous. The findings will be presented at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) annual conference in September. Respondents who choose to provide contact information (which will remain confidential) will receive an early readout of the results prior to the conference.
Our ability to provide supply chain professionals with meaningful data on this increasingly important topic depends on your participation. We thank you for your contribution, and we look forward to sharing the results with you every year.
