DSI has been founded as the think tank for Digital Supply Chains in 1997. The DSI is a non-commercial platform for sharing expertise.
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.
Our pragmatic tandem-approach:
In a digitalised business world, most challenges are too complex to solve in a silo, but require cross-functional expertise and speed. As DSI, we combine in-depth business know-how in various industries with signature IT and implementation skills based on many years of experience in management positions. We pragmatically work based on judgment and hypotheses, rather than comprehensive baselining and analyses, which often is too time-consuming. This is what we call our pragmatic tandem-approach. Our firm believe is that this combination makes a difference as it facilitates proven solutions and business impact, efficiently and on time.

„Digital supply chain programs are often too techy, don't scale and don't create business impact as expected. DSI can help to make digitalization a success.“
