End-to-end supply chain visibility is a difficult goal to achieve because the supply chain ecosystem is made of many players with disparate data and systems. These ecosystems need to correlate their information to unlock strategies for greater efficiencies, improve customer service and solid continuous improvement", said Rich Katz, Chief Technology Officer, Elemica.

“Achieving real-time, end-to-end supply chain visibility remains a top priority for companies across all industries,” said Adrian Gonzalez. “But it hasn’t been an easy goal to achieve, and in many ways, it’s gotten more difficult. Advancements in technology, however, are helping companies to address some of the challenges involved, as well as to expand the role and benefits of supply chain visibility. It was a pleasure having Rich on the program to share his insights and advice on this timely and important topic.”
