Supply chain design proves essential for leading organizations to maintain a competitive advantage in the face of constant change and increased market pressures, while also maintaining supply chain performance – both in world-class service levels and profitability.
Critical trade-off decisions have become increasingly complex and abundant due to mergers and acquisitions, globalization of supply and demand, ever-changing cost structures (labor, freight, utilities, raw materials), and fluctuations in downstream suppliers’ costs and capabilities.
These complicated trade-offs require ongoing network modeling capabilities to take all scenarios into consideration in order to make informed decisions.
Confidence in the credibility of these models is the currency of having change implemented. Anything less than investment-grade analytics impedes leaders from acting on recommendations.
While technology has made significant advances to provide enhanced visibility, growing demand for this highly specialized and technical skillset has rapidly outpaced the supply of available experts. The talent shortage highlights the harsh realization that building and maintaining an internal competency is extremely challenging. Recognizing this critical gap in the marketplace, Chainalytics developed our managed analytics solution to provide unrivalled industry experience and expert resources for our clients year-round.
