"Supply chains aren't just physical anymore, they're also digital and there is no one-way approach to inventory management," according to Roderick Gaines, research director of Warehousing, Inventory, and Order Management at IDC. "As companies shift to a digital transformation supply chain, AI will have a significant impact as companies look for ways to improve inventory accuracy while mitigating risk. The ability to track inventory in real time with cloud-based applications will give companies the advantage over companies that choose to remain with stand-alone software."
