How to create a unified view that secures Supply Chain Data Integration.

Supply Chain Data Integration secures visibility allowing you to detect changes and mitigate risk. But, at present your data is strewn across processes that increase errors and risk.

Data in your Supply Chain is strewn across process silos. These silos have led to duplication and disjointed high risk collaboration. The silos have added manual processes and increased the risk of errors. This blocks visibility and impedes your Supply Chains ability to detect changes.

To secure Supply Chain Data Integration you must combine data across process sources. Firstly you must understand where the data sources are and the format of the data. There are a number of questions you may need to ask for each process silo. These being:

  • What is the Supply Chain process that is creating the data?
  • Where is the silo geographically located?
  • Is the silo a database, flat/text file.
  • What formats can the data be accessed in.
  • Is the data duplicated across multiple silos and which has the best quality?
  • Who has access to the data and what compliance is in place to move forward.
  • Who needs access to it and how does this data help visibility.
  • What are the risks of not having access to this data?
  • When can this data get integrated?
  • What data is this connected to? This is a question that's missed when designing Supply Chain Data Integration. But, it allows your Supply Chain to create a graph that makes data easier to find, follow and understand.

A branch diagram is a simple way to visualise the independent silos. Each node within the diagram answers the above questions. With each branch connecting data across silos. This builds the flow for your integration.

The branch diagram will help visualise stakeholder buy-in. This will streamline your Supply Chain Data Integration and reduce delivery risk. That's because you have created a holistic view of data sources and what it means for the data owner.

Within each node of the branch diagram you can explain the benefit to a stakeholder. The stakeholder could be a decision maker or a data owner. This will help understand how they can create value by contributing data and/or resources.

Next, you can look at how Supply Chain Data Integration allows you to streamline and improve processes. It can help you detect changes, by triggering new automation as data changes. That improves engagement allowing you to mitigate risk. This reduces errors and manual tasks.

Now, a solution to make a unified view of data across these sources.

G8CC's a solution that enables Supply Chain Data Integration.

G8CC's a simple, yet powerful solution to enable Supply Chain Data Integration. It empowers Data Owners to easily share integratable data. This creates a seamless unified view of data across Supply Chain processes.

With G8CC each node in the branch diagram becomes a G8CC Form. Each form manages data structure, third party data source integration and access. You can integrate data from multiple data sources into a single form. These forms are built using the drag n' drop Form builder. This makes it simple to combine data into a unified view.

G8CC Forms get seamlessly embedded into other Forms. This makes integrating and extending data simple. That allows you to start small and easily scale your Supply Chain Data Integration.

G8CC Forms have built-in access management. This access is defined at a granular level. The granular or fine-grained access management allows the data owner to only share the data needed.

The G8CC platform harnesses a unique Zero-Copy Data Sharing and Integration system. This empowers the data owner to keep physical and logical control of their data. This supports compliance and creates a single version of the truth.

G8CC allows you to easily build a unified view of data across your supply chain. It provides a flexible platform and views to enable Supply Chain Data Integration.

Learn more about what blocks Supply Chain Data Integration.

Lines of business and data silos block Supply Chain Data Integration. The silos in supply chain have led to disjointed integration and collaboration. These disjointed processes increase errors, risk, wastage and cost.

Digital creates an opportunity to secure information flow in the supply chain. But, supply chains have mirrored the disjointed, replicative paper approach into a digital format. This hasn't harnessed the value digital provides.

Digital Transformation in Supply Chain can be explained with:

  • Filing cabinets merging into database silos.
  • Paper Ledgers becoming spreadsheets.
  • Letters and phone got replaced with Email, IM and conferencing solutions.

This transformation hasn't harnessed the opportunity digital and its underlying connectivity provides supply chain. The transformation has led to disjointed, duplicative, wasteful and error prone processes.

Digital and its underlying connectivity enables Supply Chain Data Integration that mirror the flow of goods. This enables the secure flow of financial transactions. That allows supply chain members to mitigate disruption and get paid faster.

Supply Chain Data Integration underpins the smooth flow of information.

Supply Chains are becoming more complex. Many have looked to integration to overcome this complexity. PWC's supply chain innovation survey has shown a light on this.

The capacity enablers Supply Chains consider the most important revealed that:


Agreed the "Alignment between partners in the supply chain" had a significant importance.


Say "Alignment and integration between internal business functions" as important.


Confirm "Upstream and downstream process integration and information sharing" is important.


Look to "Risk Governance" as important.

But, implementing EDI and Data Hub solutions have left Supply Chains with complex, rigid, high cost integration. That has continued the disjointed collaboration. This blocks Supply Chains ability to integrate processes and collaborate on information.

EDI and Data Hubs have driven collaboration into Email, IM, Spreadsheets, Notes, etc. This leads to disjointed information. Data Hubs also restrict the amount of information contributed. That is because they centralise information. This means supply chain members lose control of their data.

Our solution provides a simple, innovative alternative to secure Supply Chain Data Integration, enabling seamless Collaboration.
