Running a lean and efficient supply chain is no longer enough. Faced with rapidly changing market conditions, new disruptive technologies, and evolving customer expectations, businesses need to also be agile and responsive. This simultaneous requirement for both efficiency and agility is what Gartner calls the bi-modal supply chain.
The bi-modal supply chain poses a real challenge because the enterprise planning systems used to run the traditional efficient supply chain are not flexible enough to adapt to rapid business change, and they don’t typically include the advanced analytics required by the agile supply chain — meanwhile, the analytics tools needed to address the agile supply chain are typically only used by data scientists and aren’t easily deployed to business users.View as Gartner Vice President Distinguished Analyst Noha Tohamy and LLamasoft Executive Vice President Toby Brzoznowski explain how leaders are leveraging a new class of technology known as “Analytics Platforms” which are emerging as the bridge between enterprise planning systems and advance analytics tools.
