About this paper
Manufacturers often sell through multiple channels, from various manufacturing facilities across far-reaching geographies. They coordinate global deliveries and use supply chains comprising large enterprises, distributors and resellers, as well as consumers. The information that feeds back into their businesses becomes increasingly granular as it grows in volume, variety and complexity. To manage it all while empowering decision makers to be more productive, manufacturers must be able to take advantage of leading-edge technologies like cloud, big data and analytics, social business, and mobility. Learn how these technologies can help you harness information and use it to make proactive decisions rather than just reacting to situations as they arise.
