Just as oil powered the industrial revolution, in 2023, data drives the digital revolution. Every single day, around 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is generated. Many new companies were created, and a new digital economy runs parallelly by strategically leveraging data and machine learning. This change can be seen across industries and has shaken the old ways of managing businesses.
Logistics and Supply Chain is one of the top priorities for business leaders globally. Today, 47% of CSCOs are seen as strategic business partners, and companies have also realized that their supply chain data is a potential goldmine. By 2027, more than $7 billion will be spent globally on data in supply chain management alone.
Companies like Holocene recognize the significance and power of such data and are helping companies globally to improve execution and communication across supply chains.
Data is generated at every supply chain step but in multiple systems, like ERP, TMS, WMS, Planning Systems, and more. When utilized well, this data can provide insights into consumer behavior, inventory levels, supplier performance, etc.
Companies can change their trajectory by adding automation and machine learning capabilities to this data. They can make informed decisions, save time, predict market trends, remove daily firefighting, and ensure seamless operations.
Owning your supply chain data means having complete control over it. For example, Holocene's platform offers real-time visibility, ensuring the data is automated, real-time, and actionable. With such capability, businesses can ensure transparency, reduce errors, and make strategic decisions confidently.

More than 73% of organizations now have a Chief Data and Analytics Officer (CDAO). Data can help build a unique leverage in the supply chain and here are the areas that are directly impacted:
The future supply chains are going to be heavily automated and data-driven. Owning and leveraging supply chain data is now a prerequisite for building efficiency and digital supply chain transformations. Businesses that embrace data ownership will thrive and set new benchmarks. Holocene is helping companies find how data, when harnessed correctly, can revolutionize supply chain operations.
