Supply Chain Agility

Good planning and efficient re-planning are critical to success. With an increasing number of consumer goods being transported daily, planning must be agile enough to respond to unpredictable events. To accelerate decision making, access to accurate real-time information via the IoT is vital.

Effective Demand Management

Changing consumer demands are influencing product design and price optimization like never before: effective demand management is absolutely essential. CPG companies require quick and easy access to relevant information to support profitability analysis and price optimization.

Food Safety

Businesses require a systemized food safety program that should ensure the highest possible quality across all processes and timely compliance with global regulations. To close the gap between incidents and corrective actions, companies in the food and beverages sector need a powerful in-memory platform, while innovative IoT capabilities can keep them ahead of competition.
