Unveiling the Power of Data Clouds for Supply Chain Management at NASCES’22

Elementum is set to show the benefits of its next-generation cloud architecture at NASCES’22

As someone who’s been to a lot of supply chain conferences over the years, I’ve always appreciated NASCES for its emphasis on quality. NASCES is the one conference every year where supply chain execs attend en masse, and openly discuss their most burning issues. It’s a collaborative environment where the day-to-day grind of supply chain management can be put aside – for a few hours at least – and big ideas can be celebrated.

That’s why Elementum is excited to unveil Data Sharing and Process Sharing for Supply Chain Management at NASCES ’22 (Sept 12-14). It’s been a while in the making, but with Data Sharing, companies access supply chain data in real-time without any integrations required. Furthermore, with Process Sharing, they instantaneously share workflows (internally or externally) for seamless collaboration.

Real-time data, and the benefits that come from it – such as visibility, automation, and insights – have been at the heart of many supply chain projects. And, the costly, time-intensive, fragile integrations required to get that data is why most of those projects have failed.

Now, real-time data without any integrations may sound too good to be true, but it’s not. In 2021, Elementum completely rebuilt its architecture to be cloud native. At the same time, the major Data Clouds (AWS, Snowflake, and Azure) were developing new technology to enable data “views” instead of integrations.

Together, this combination results in instantaneously synchronized, readable, writeable, and configurable data that can be seamlessly and securely applied to any dashboard, workflow or analytics.

The value unlock for supply chain management is massive:

  • Automate manual and repetitive tasks
  • Track operational performance in real-time and receive real-time updates
  • Overlay external datasets to create smart workflows that update dynamically
  • Identify trends and patterns to eliminate bottlenecks

If this still sounds too good to be true, then come see it for yourself. Stop by the Elementum booth at NASCES, or get in touch schedule a demo.
