This has sparked a flurry of innovation, with hundreds of companies developing digital tools to address aspects of every segment of supply chain management – planning and forecasting, purchasing and procurement, inventory, warehousing, transport, and supply chain platforms. In our analysis, we find that while warehousing and transport have the most innovation activity, planning and forecasting and platforms have outsized importance; while the move to digital supply chain management will facilitate a highly dynamic process with very different priorities.
