Supply Chain Management a vein of E-Business

Integration of Realities

Though many relationships exist between different business areas, two realities in today’s business world are becoming increasingly interconnected.

  1. E-Business (it is here whether you realize it or not)
  2. Supply Chain Management (it can make or break a company)

This may be preaching to the converted, but effective integration of the technology with Supply Chain Management has the capacity to produce astounding results.

It is about more than just jumping on the technology bandwagon, if you do this you will likely fall right back off, it is about creating an environment where essential information is available and able to be quickly processed in order to facilitate crucial supply chain decisions. It is about tracking, monitoring, and anticipating with greater accuracy the consumption of resources.
