View the meeting notes.
There are many contrasting ways of using business intelligence in Supply Chain management, for example, (1) ex-post BI vs near real time analytics, (2) BI in logistics, manufacturing, procurement and customer service/order fufillment functions and (3) enterprise supply chain BI vs extended supply chain BI. The presentation starts with an overview of how Business Intelligence is applied to Enterprise Supply Chains and discusses the value proposition of some offerings. Next, we define and discuss the pros and cons of various supply chain BI approaches, such as those centered on top down management, planning and operations. Finally, we talk about the applicability of these solutions to specific industry verticals.
