    The present extraordinary situation reveals stark gaps in our global supply chains and has fundamentally altered our ecosystem. Technology-driven supply chain transformation is forcing leaders to redefine agility. It is not optional anymore—it is a necessity for survival. It is time to rethink the model centered around the ability to self-heal and be agile—a model that focuses on building systems with a real-time understanding of the entire operation, anticipating and advising proactively, and augmenting human decision-making seamlessly.
