SupplyOn joined over 4,000 attendees at the 2024 Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/ Xpo in sunny Orlando. Together, we were all on a mission to connect and gather knowledge and insight about the latest supply chain trends and technology to bring resiliency to their organization’s supply chain. 

These are my 5 key takeaways from this inspiring event:

  1. Resilience & Risk: The supply chain has always been challenging and fragile, even before the global pandemic. Still, today, disruptions have become more frequent and severe. Analysts advise making changes in supply chains to depart from an “antifragile” state. There must be a focus on resilience and risk management while adopting proactive strategies to achieve resilience.
  2. AI/Data-driven Decision-Making: Accurate, up-to-date data has always been critical for supply chains. Organizations must harness the power of data analytics to gain actionable insights, optimize operations, and drive informed decision-making at every level of the supply chain.
  3. Digital Transformation: Organizations must fully embrace digital transformation in their supply chains. Technology must be leveraged to enhance visibility, agility, and efficiency across the supply chain.
  4. ESG/Sustainability: In my opinion, the US has been slower to move forward with ESG requirements, but this topic is gaining traction, especially as global requirements are impacting the US in multiple ways. Gartner highlighted that ESG is growing recognition within the supply chain. Beyond being kind to our planet, it is clear, organizations must reduce carbon footprint, ensure ethical sourcing practices, and promote social responsibility in order to remain competitive in the global marketplace, while reducing costs.
  5. Partnerships: Partnerships are essential for growth and collaboration within the supply chain. Forging strategic alliances with suppliers, customers, stakeholders, and solution providers is critical to driving innovation, mitigating risks, and creating shared value.
