This IDC Perspective outlines current supply chain challenges, the benefits of supply chain transparency, visibility, and traceability, and the role of technology. It also highlights the different ways in which relevant technology and services providers are assisting their clients in achieving supply chain-related sustainability goals."Almost no organization in the world can claim to have complete control and visibility of its entire supply chain. Organizations may demand adherence to a code of conduct from their primary direct suppliers but have little visibility into those in remote areas. A consequent loss of trust or decline in demand can be devastating, underlining the need for better transparency across the entire supply chain. Digitizing parts of the supply chain using innovative technologies such as IoT, blockchain, and other software are options that organizations can make use of today." -- Marta Mu?oz M?ndez-Villamil, European Technology for Sustainability and Social Impact Lead, IDC EMEA
