Great article on a very interesting space that will need to be disrupted: Trade Finance!
Between smart machines, A.I., and big data,supply chain management is steadily embracing futuristic technology. This is driven by a confluence of factors, including rapid technological development, a more strategic charter being pushed from the C-suite, and the realization that company-wide agility begins at the supply chain level. Below are five of the most exciting technologies either already at work in supply chain management or soon to hit the market: 1) Big data - Data gets buzz in every market, but supply chain management is a field where it can have an immediate impact. 2) 3D data visualization - Unsurprisingly, data hits the list twice. Visual representations of digital sources aren’t new–3D glasses and the like can reduce the lag between design and production. Ideas can be quickly modeled digitally, then scrapped or advanced, enabling agility and cost savings.
