The Vital New Role of AI in Managing Supply Chain Disruptions

Rethinking supply chain strategies

The pandemic’s impact on supply chain has forever changed global trade—causing industry leaders to rethink their supply chain strategies and how they can better manage global disruptions. A key insight from the pandemic’s impact on supply chain disruptions is the vital role Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays in helping companies not just survive disruptions but thrive.

Rethinking supply chain management means adopting AI and automation solutions that gather all the necessary data, cleanse it, enrich it, and make it decision-grade. AI in supply chain also makes it possible to process huge volumes of data to perform complex mathematical calculations in seconds, freeing up businesses to decide on the best course of action and automatically execute it.
