Chief Supply Chain Officers Intrigued by the Potential for Automation Generally — and GenAI Specifically
This IDC Market Perspective examines the priorities and challenges facing the chief supply chain officer (CSCO) from IDC's latest Worldwide C-Suite Tech Survey.
"Automation sits as the most intriguing technology (or technologies) for the CSCO, with GenAI a close second. Eventually GenAI will probably join the pantheon of automation technology, but it is new enough to remain distinct. While GenAI has come out of the starting gate quickly, the reality is that the AI journey more broadly is a multiyear journey, with some inevitable fits and starts," says Simon Ellis, group VP, U.S. Manufacturing and Supply Chain, at IDC.
