IDC Technology Spotlight: Building the Warehouse of the Future
The global trade value chain is going through one of the most disruptive times in recent history. The recent health pandemic has limited the movement of goods to an unprecedented extent, placing tremendous pressure on supply chains. Various players in the supply chain— suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers—have responded quickly by increasing efficiency, embracing digital business models, creating new partnerships, developing new revenue streams, and containing costs. While the pandemic will have a strong impact on the supply chain over the short and medium term, the changes in consumer profiles and the emergence of digital players will be two trends that will have an overarching impact over the long term.
This IDC Technology Spotlight on the Middle East region, including the UAE and Saudi Arabia, examines the importance of transforming the distribution business to cater to the digital age. It highlights the need for a digital-driven approach to transforming warehouses and looks at solution provider Infor’s role in this strategically important market.
