Technology has a high rate of innovation, a short product shelf life, and razor-thin profit margins, which means companies have to be very careful about where to invest in digital transformation – especially when it comes to supply chain management. Darren Coil, a supply chain business technologies expert at Microsoft, said the company’s manufacturing centers generate more than a terabyte of data each day, yet only a fraction of that was being analyzed. It took hours or even days to answer a question or generate reports, as data lived in a variety of spreadsheets and databases all over the world, few of which were connected by the cloud. In this episode, Coil explains how he and a small team of colleagues set out to change all of that, working on a fast-paced project to transform operations using data analytics, Microsoft Power BI, and the connective power of cloud computing.
