Corporate and customer landscapes continue to evolve almost every day, driving new complexities and creating unprecedented challenges for businesses. The struggle to meet the demanding supply chain challenges grows increasingly difficult. Capgemini's report takes a closer look into the complexities of the digital supply chain, and how companies can deliver improved agility in their operations, taking more decisive actions.

A lack of transparency into operations can be detrimental to supply chain networks as they grow increasingly connected and dependent on data. Poor partner relationships surrounding the complex operations of global or regional networks can have a significant impact on the lead times of a company. These issues must be tackled head-on and taken seriously before a digital supply chain can become effective and successful.
