DSI has been founded as the think tank for Digital Supply Chains in 1997. The DSI is a non-commercial platform for sharing expertise and connecting the community of digital & supply chain leaders and enthusiasts with more than 10,000 DSI subscribers.
Today, digitalization is being discussed, extensively. And a digital supply chain is the key facilitator for new, digital business models. Many supply chain initiatives focus on technological aspects (e.g. S4HANA, IoT, CPS, 3D) rather than business. In order to improve competitiveness, however, our stakeholders cannot afford happy engineering. Most of the companies are beyond the proof-of-concept phase. They want to scale and create real business impact. DSI helps companies to transform towards a smarter, greener and commercially viable supply chain management at scale. Together with our stakeholders, we create impact by developing even more sustainable and competitive businesses.
