Sudhir Reddy, Chief Information Officer, Aricent (USA)

“We’ve over 8,500 engineers with more than 800 projects underway at any given time. Winning bids requires speed and agility to define, select, cost out and deploy right-sized and skilled teams.

“In the near future, as we develop more 3D printing capability and knowledge, we will be able to accelerate our innovation and new product development process greatly. Where it takes a week or more today, we’ll be able to create a new product mold and cap in just a day for quick prototyping. Coupled with sensors, social media, retailer and big data analytics, we’ll be able to both shape, predict and quickly respond to new customer demands and grow market share.”

“As a company, we must differentiate ourselves to our customers in the market in all that we do. It’s essential to have end-to-end visibility and capability in our supply chain. A Digital Supply Chain — including use of the internet, big data, analytics and other technologies — enables us to do so much more today than only a few years ago. This differentiation grows our revenue and market share while also cutting costs significantly. Two examples illustrate how our Digital Supply Chain differentiates us. It is about visibility and collaboration, and differentiated service for customers according to their specific needs. Our business customers expect to know at all times where their products are in our supply chain process, as they rely on us 100% to then deliver on their own projects, which digital enables now fully. The second involves sensing new business opportunity on social media and adapting accordingly our service offer.”

“The customer and customer alone determines whether we win, or we lose. This is increasingly a customer to business global economy; the business to business to customer economy is going away. In this evolving economy, everything has to start with that ultimate empathy for the end user and the experience they’re getting from business’ products or services. Big data and analytics, the Internet of Things, social media all enable businesses in every sector to reach and thereby better know and fulfill their customers’ needs and wants. The Digital Supply Chain holds the promise of real-time data to sense demand, drive innovation, reduce cost and deliver the customer the right product at the right time and price.”

Kevin Plank, CEO, Under Armour (USA)

“3D printing is radically changing how we use digital technology to create and produce products that you simply can’t do with traditional methods. For example, we recently launched our first footwear that was digitally 3D fabricated and manufactured — the UA Architect — offering athletes a “super-hybrid” trainer that solved an unmet need through a proprietary 3D printing process. This digital technology, coupled with others like sensors, robotics, big data and analytics, will enable us to engage with new customers, cut costs and transform how we plan, shape, predict and deliver to athletes around the world.”

“While the use of external demand signal data is becoming increasingly important as we advance our Digital Supply Chain initiative, the preparation of the data remains a pain point. Mapping and cleaning data is labor intensive. We are adding machine learning capability to the process of mapping and cleaning data to increase automation and improve speed.”
