It’s no secret that data is critical for accurate decision-making, and organizations have it in abundance. However, having it is only half the battle. Consolidating data from different parts of the organization as well as from suppliers, customers and producers requires breaking down silos, and that’s easier said than done.

Watch the webcast Why Supply Chain Convergence Matters, sponsored by GEP and Microsoft, for the answers.
