New Reports

Deep research studies. Open Content research. We bring you insights first.  At Supply Chain Insights we write reports to help supply chain leaders maximize value in their journey for supply chain excellence. This month we're sharing a new reports on metrics that matter, customer-centricity, and supply chain analytics to help you create an optimal environment.

Supply Chain Metrics That Matter: A Focus on High-Tech and Electronics


High-tech supply chains serve global markets with regional preferences. They include some of the most advanced processes and strongest supply chain leadership across all industries. As a result, the value chain made more progress than others in the course of the last decade. This report is based on analysis of financial balance sheet data and income statements for the Consumer Electronics, B2B Electronics, Contract Manufacturers, and the Semiconductor industries over the period of 2006-2015. The report reflects insights from the pre- and post-recession periods and compares the progress of companies within their peer group..

Driving a Customer-Centric Supply Chain


In this study, 80% of those surveyed have a customer-centric strategy; yet the majority (54%) state that there is room for improvement to drive performance changes in their supply chain. Companies struggle to drive alignment and build constancy of purpose.

Putting Together the Pieces: Supply Chain Analytics


This report is the result of six months of studying the emerging supply chain analytics technology market. This report is based on qualitative research completed in the period of January-July 2016. In this research effort, we interviewed thirty-five technology analytics providers to understand their solutions. This was followed by interviews with thirty innovative supply chain leaders. To support this research and take it one step further, we augment these qualitative insights with quantitative survey analysis collected in preparation for the Supply Chain Insights Global Summit. In this research, we share insights on the importance of supply chain analytics in Supply Chain 2030 strategies.
