The Emerging Role of the Hyperscalers in Supply Chain
This IDC Market Perspective discusses the emerging role of hyperscalers in supply chain. Supply chains in every industry, geography, and size all require integration of data across multiple transactional areas and advanced analytics using that data to realize their top priorities. Advancements in supply chain resiliency, agility, and efficiency all depend on these efforts.
Hyperscalers are uniquely positioned to make inroads offering solutions to supply chains as they already partner with many of them, offer integration solutions, and possess advanced analytics and AI expertise.
Whether a hyperscaler or an applications provider, there is value in considering supply chain needs and the evolving competitive landscape.
"Priorities, technologies, and partnerships in supply chain may be setting the stage for an expansion of the role of hyperscalers beyond data management and provisioning." — Eric Thompson, research director, Global Supply Chain Planning, IDC
