The top supply chain technology trends for 2023 are:
Actionable AI provides better data-driven decisions by mimicking human problem solving by augmenting decision-making and keeping people awake for validation purposes. Adaptive AI learns patterns from past decisions and experiences to adapt to changing real-world situations. Solutions continuously train models and learn on new data in process and development environments.
Smart Operations expands the concept of Smart Manufacturing to include all core operational capabilities, including manufacturing, service and logistics, warehousing, transportation, and international trade. This involves managing a web of separate and distributed processes and the systems and data that support them. While manufacturing is at the forefront of pursuing smart operations, logistics organizations are quickly embracing the potential of this idea to transform their businesses.
Mobile property optimization
Mobile asset optimization leverages business process software, sensory technologies, and operations research techniques to optimize and leverage business intelligence to maximize the utilization of an organization’s mobile assets. This has implications in the warehouse, where intralogistics smart robots are gathering attention and investment. Externally, transportation visibility platforms can improve carrier activity and collaboration between shippers, carriers and logistics providers.
Industrial cloud platforms
Industrial cloud platforms combine software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) for specific functionality for fixed industry use cases. They operate not as pre-defined, one-stop, vertical SaaS solutions, but as agile integrated platforms supported by a catalog of industry-specific packaged business capabilities. In effect, they transform a cloud platform into a business platform, expanding a technology innovation tool into a business innovation tool and creating added value beyond traditional cloud approaches.
Employee engagement is a collection of tools and applications used to help companies improve front-line employee performance, satisfaction and retention. This trend could span mixed reality and mobile devices to deliver work-enhancing content, wearables for security and environmental management, collaboration tools and more. These technology investments should be embedded in a broader workforce strategy that includes knowledge development, skill development and training.
Composable application architecture
Composite business applications are designed to pursue modularity, autonomy, orchestration, and discovery with a specific business use case. These packaged business capabilities are end-user-identified packaged software components that represent well-defined business capabilities.
Cyber defense supply chains
As supply chains implement more advanced technologies, they add more supply chain partners, suppliers and service providers to the “digital” supply chain. However, each external entity added to a digital enterprise represents additional digital connectivity and cybersecurity vulnerabilities and risks. Cyber security represents the tools, processes and governance mechanisms required to prevent cyber security threats across supply chain technologies and ecosystem participants.
Supply chain integration services
Supply chain integration services include technology platforms, integration teams, strategic decision-making of which applications connect when and how (various integration strategies), and finally cloud services to manage these integrations. Supply chain integration services elevate the integration role from a strategic, performance-centric, and technical perspective of system interoperability to a strategy-driven vision of an interconnected world.
