This IDC Market Perspective examines the industry developments and pressures that are setting the stage for the future of supply chain orchestration as a service. Developments in AI/ML and multi-enterprise data integration are coming just as companies are facing potential labor and talent shortages, operational cost pressures and a strategic need to increase visibility, responsiveness, and collaboration. Considering the classical business notion of focusing on competitive advantages and the long-held desire to increase automation, it appears we are nearing a moment where tech vendors will be positioned to offer supply chain orchestration as a service to both relieve operational pressure and enhance supply chain performance.

"Just as parents release their children from the home to expand their minds, we may soon see a moment where operational and C-suite executives realize it's time to send their supply chains to school and invite the expertise of vendors that have mastered the capabilities of supply chain orchestration." — Eric Thompson, research director, Global Supply Chain Planning at IDC
