White Paper

From a business perspective, digital transformation can be described as using digital technologies to create innovations in services and products. It is not just digitalizing existing routine business processes and moving from traditional sales to e-commerce. Digitalization is the cause of largescale and profound transformations across multiple aspects of business, providing great opportunities for value creation and capture, but it is also a major source of risk. In today’s business climate, with all industries being disrupted at every turn, companies must be able to quickly change their products and processes to take advantage of new market opportunities.

In this paper, we will underline the significant differences between traditional and digital supply chain networks, mention challenges you can face during the digital transformation of your supply chain, and run through solutions and tools that can address these kinds of challenges.
