Data. Years ago companies wanted more of it. Now the opposite is true; companies are so inundated with data that they can’t analyze it effectively. Supply chain data, for example, resides in different systems and different formats, and often spreads across various government agencies, multiple customs brokers, and freight forwarders. On a user level, that makes reporting and analysis difficult. On an executive level, that makes strategic decision-making impossible.
Among supply chain managers, advanced analytics are top of mind right now. Most understand the value that data can deliver, but many are not utilizing the tools available. The need for actionable data has sparked the development of many business intelligence (BI) solutions on the market today.

This e-book will help you understand how executives and trade compliance professionals can use self-service analytics solutions to make informed decisions and gain a competitive edge.
