VTech: A Story of a Supply Chain Leader - by @lcecere
"So, getting back to the story, at the time, there were at least three different forecasts (sales/financial/production) and none were the same, and how would they be reconciled? Legacy technology applications were completely unaligned. I asked, how do we align these? We realized that there was a need for a single trigger. Point of sale data needed to drive all processes. If you knew what the retailer was going to sell (POS) then the calculation as to what the retailer would buy was a simple mathematical calculation. The way that we got there, was to abandon the push forecast for pull demand and replenish what the retailer wants to sell. We went from push planning to pull-based demand planning over the course of a year."

Event Report: Zuora’s #Subscribed15 Shows How Organizations Can Power Their Digital Transformation Initiatives - by @rwang0
"In speaking with over 47 customers at the Zuora event, the common bond is the shift to these new digital business models built on subscriptions. However, most organizations lack the technology infrastructure to support unit cost pricing models, recurring revenue billing, and subscription pricing. Existing financial systems and applications can not deliver the solutions required without the massive cost of customization for a product not designed to support these digital business models."

Industry Disruptor: Tesla and the Automotive Driving Experience - by @bob_ferrari
"Is it any wonder that when news broke that Apple was working on its own secret development of an electric vehicle, that social media lit-up like fireworks and the automotive industry shuttered.
In today’s industries, change is constant and the termed clock speeds of product innovation are indeed accelerating. Supply chain teams will invariably be either on-board facilitators or unfortunate obstacles to these changes."
