Emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is Poised to Disrupt Existing Supply Chain Operations
DUBLIN, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dx8dsq/supply_chain) has announced the addition of the "Supply Chain Evolution - Tectonic Shifts in the Value Chain" report to their offering.
This study examines the transformations in global supply chains mainly based on the key disruptive themes that have sprung from the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It also analyses the challenges faced across the supply chain, market motivators, and the implementation approach of key applications within each theme.
In this research, the expert analysts thoroughly study the following disruptive themes: Smart products, Control On-the-go, Track and Trace, Advanced Supply Chain Management (SCM), Big Data and Analytics, and Advanced Logistics. The research focus is primarily on supply chain operations conducted across key industrial sectors (process and discrete industries).
Big Data and Analytics
The influx of Big Data across the supply chain, in particular unstructured data, has resulted in key value chain participants looking for stateof-the-art analytical platforms to convert raw data into actionable insights that improve the overall operational efficiency.
