The new supply chain – the data chain that must be efficiently managed supply chains produce information on an international scale – and if companies are to keep track of the production and distribution of products, they must be able to gather and analyse data at vital points on this journey. The supply chain does not just generate data that must be managed – efficiently managing data can allow businesses to increase the flexibility of supply chains and generate efficiency.

The extended data supply chain of today’s businesses must allow for multiple sources in varying forms (both structured and unstructured) from internal and external sources to allow for passing of data to where and when it is needed, transforming it as required along the way.
