In this e-book, you’ll learn the following:
Big data is new and “ginormous” and scary –very, very scary. No, wait. Big data is just another name for the same old data marketers & financial analysts have always used, and it’s not all that big, and it’s something we should be embracing, not fearing. No, hold on. That’s not it, either. What I meant to say is that big data is as powerful as a tsunami, but it’s a deluge that can be controlled . . . in a positive way, to provide business insights and value. Yes, that’s right, isn’t it?
Over the past few years, I have heard big data defined in many, many different ways, and so, I’m not surprised there’s so much confusion surrounding the term. Because of all the misunderstanding and misperceptions, I have to ask:
CFOs and managers, you talk about “big data” in the C-suite, do you know if everyone’s on the same page? And even closer to home, are you certain there’s consensus within your organization?
Supply chain & transportation industry leaders have access to more information today than ever before in history. Thanks to data gathering programs, supply chain software, and data entry applications, this represents a mountain of data, which has the potential to provide ground-breaking insight into how to improve business-model efficiency.
Editor’s Note: This is a guest blog post from end-to-end global supply chain services company, Flash Global. The company focuses on high tech industries such as telecome, data storage, data centers, bio-medicine, and any company who needs supply chain visibility and proactive supply chain services for replacement parts and more. We are excited to feature this company as they deal in the fast moving world of complex global supply chain solutions. As a transportation management 3PL ourselves, we find it very interesting to come across other companies, also referred to as a 3PL, who offer services that require a lot of focus and attention to several moving parts. In the LTL world, where we specialize, this is also true. Both of our companies service our clients with a backbone of proprietary technology and make a difference through our people and services. We hope you enjoy!
Big data is more useful than many people fully realize. That being said, there are a few different ways that big data can be used to help optimize supply chains for a wide range of companies. These seven solutions can help any business visualize how big data can help make their supply chains more efficient and better optimized to increase their bottom line.
All of these factors make using big data valuable. Instead of having to depend fully on what you can see, you can predict, use data from past operations, and so much more to make sure that you have the items you need when you need them. This type of analytics can help save you time and save you money and can really help streamline the process overall and make for a much smoother and easier transition. This type of data can also help you keep better track of records and of previous shipments and orders so you can see what you need in the future. This type of data can be used for a wide range of businesses making it highly valuable and useful.
