The Only Recognition Program for
Supply Chain Technology Leaders in Asia/Pacific
IDC Supply Chain Technology Leaders is a recognition program that celebrates outstanding achievements in the integration and digital transformation of physical, informational, and financial flows between organizations, creating interdependencies that increase performance, customer engagement, and support sustainable outcomes (ESG).
With supply chain disruptions creating conditions that make global headlines, Asia Pacific manufacturers need to improve supply chain resilience and reduce risk as a number two priority after product quality (2021 IDC Manufacturing Insights Survey).
We’re looking for leading organizations who have made continuous transformation a part of their operating culture to join this community to share insights, incubate new business models and capabilities, and accelerate the adoption of digital supply chain technologies.
Supply Chain Operations
Supply Chain Operations Transformation
This category will recognizing the best projects or initiatives that enable physical goods movements with technology that extends beyond the four walls of the organization and integrates supply chains partners.
This includes (but is not limited to) projects that support all product movements from resource extraction to the last mile, with the support of data enablement (IT) and physical technologies such as the internet of things (IoT), 3D Printing, robotics, automation, and operations technology (OT).
Sustainable Supply Chain
This category recognizes the best projects or initiatives that are making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and working to achieve measurable sustainability goals working with supply chain partners.
This may include (but is not limited to) initiatives that address energy and waste reduction (excluding carbon trading), circular economy initiatives, remanufacturing and repair, servitization, and recycling).
Supply Chain Orchestration
This category will recognize those projects or initiatives that support the management of supply chain transactions and partners, providing complete visibility, collaboration, and coordination between supply chain ecosystem partners.
This includes (but is not limited to) data exchange that supports financial and trade facilitation, security, network optimization, data sharing within the ecosystem, cross border trade financing and facilitation, marketplace participation, and solutions such as control centers, digital twins, digital marketplaces, and exchanges, blockchain enabled traceability, platforms, and microservices.
Supply Chain Innovation
Recognizing most innovative projects or initiatives selected from the first three categories that demonstrate unique use of technology to achieve supply chain objectives across multiple organizations in the supply chain.
The innovation could result in new business processes and practices, new business models, or be an innovative technology or technology application.
Recent disruptions are creating conditions that make headlines. Lack of supply chain visibility, increased demand variability, longer lead times, and increased transportation costs have combined to create conditions that leave those who use manual supply chain management techniques in the dark.
Leading organizations realize that technology enables supply chain resilience and reduces risk. As a result, they have embarked on a journey with other supply chain ecosystem partners to improve their supply chain resilience, developing capabilities that allow for agility and visibility.
