ALM Intelligence: Supply Chain Planning Consulting

In its recent report, ALM Vanguard Supply Chain Planning Consulting, ALM Intelligence found that companies look to consultants to help them align and synchronize their cross-functional planning activities through operating model and process design, but they increasingly seek opportunities to use data — made available by the ongoing digitization of their supply chains — to improve supply chain planning performance.
