According to IDC’s 2020 Supply Chain Survey, almost 75% of Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) manufacturers see the lack of supply chain visibility and resiliency as the top gaps that will likely be problematic for supply chains if these are not addressed. More than 67% of APEJ supply chains focus on supply chain planning and end-to-end supply chain visibility. The COVID-19 crisis has further accelerated interest toward digital supply chains and collaborative ecosystems, which can work together to react better to market disruptions.
This IDC FutureScape covers a global and regional outlook of the supply chain, along with the top 10 predictions for 2021, which attempt to explain technologies as viable enablers. Each prediction is presented based on the timeline projection, complexity assessment, and organizational impact in the APEJ region. This presentation also includes insights into regional use cases and examples as well as the regional outlook for supply chains over the next five years.
