If it's a silo, it's not scalable

The level of scalability that enterprises need today cannot be addressed by supply chain solutions that ultimately reinforce the silos and fail to rectify data latency and data trust issues.

Software scalability is about being able to easily broaden both the use and value of a solution within an organization.

Solutions that aren't scalable

  • A suite of separate software modules for each individual function of the organization, using different data stores and rules engines, but marketed as a single solution because it runs on a piece of middleware that keeps it patched together.
  • "One-off" custom solutions developed in-house, which characteristically lack scale and have massive sustainability costs.
  • Hundreds of Excel spreadsheets with thin layers of underlying data and typically with "hidden" business rules buried in cell formulas, which are held together as a process by dozens of individuals.
