  • How data-driven approach reduces negative impacts across supply chain processes Sep 24 2020 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Paige Roberts, Vertica Product Marketing
    A data-driven approach and advanced analytics are key to supporting supply chain managers. Analytics improves their capacity to remodel the supply chain when a disruption occurs to reduce the resulting negative impacts.
    This webinar focuses on the benefits of applying a data-driven control tower-based approach.
    •Enhance agility and data-driven decisions with access to smart maps and dashboards integrated with live operational data.
    •Receive automated proactive notifications by setting the level of Geo Risk Grade, or specifying which type of events will trigger them.
    •Reduce negative impacts by putting actions in place promptly, such as alternative suppliers.
    •Introduce alert and workflow systems to update regularly the factors that impact Geo Risk Grade.
    A data-driven approach can improve your forecast capabilities, improve your knowledge of Geo Risk Grade, and mitigate the impact of negative events.
