The adoption of supply chain technologies has proven beneficial for businesses over recent years. According to a 2020 study by Statista, 62% of supply chain companies—who were involved in the research—had either adopted or planned their implementation of cutting-edge technologies for their business practices.
With that said, there was still a significant portion of companies that had not discussed plans to implement supply chain technology. It is crucial for businesses to access practical insights into supply chain technology from real-life applications to make better-informed decisions. AlteryX is ready and willing to educate companies on the benefits of automation and artificial intelligence in the supply chain with the ‘Breaking The (Supply) Chain: Analytical Hurdles of Safety Stock Optimisation’ webinar.
