DIGITAL SUPPLY CHAINS: DSI`s 3rd edition of "Digital Supply Chains":

Please see the latest edition of "Digital Supply Chains - Key to Industry 4.0 and digital business models, leveraging on S4HANA and beyond", published by Routledge: 

This DSI publication provides a practical guide to digital supply chain modelling, demonstrating an agile approach to how such models can be applied to any manufacturing company to build competitive advantage, facilitate new business models and drive towards Industry 4.0. The agile approach of the book provides an attractive alternative to the conventional country-by-country deployment of S/4 HANA and other relevant technologies.

Digitalization is on everybody’s lips. And there are only few things that work without IT. But that does not mean, that just by using latest technology you succeed.

What lessons learned should you consider, what kind of success factors are key, which pitfalls to avoid? DSI shares expertise from reviewing S4HANA programs in order to prevent you from sunk investments and facilitate your company to get the most value out of S4HANA.
