Powerful supply chains enable networking carriers and other enterprises to be more competitive. Advanced digital supply chain information systems generate better insights and planning with precision, as well as prevent glitches so enterprises can accelerate to the top of the leaderboard.
One of America’s supercharged wireless network operators, delivering an advanced 4G LTE and transformative nationwide 5G network, wanted to develop an integrated supply chain platform, capturing real-time events and enhancing visualization capabilities to stay competitive. They needed real-time analytics across 10 product areas in the supply chain domain. They needed to support more than 80,000 new SKUs and 500+ operational and information service requests annually.
The challenge for this telecom powerhouse was a lack of timely information for analysis and real-time visibility into the supply chain process. Due to a merger, they needed to integrate with multiple data sources and make their legacy data architecture more scalable. They needed expert engineers to design a superior supply chain information platform solution.
