The flexible supply chain

Using the cloud to support agile and resilient logistics

“The challenges of the pandemic have underlined the multiple benefits of modular, scalable cloud and microservice models”

It’s become common to say that the Covid-19 pandemic has forced retail to skip a decade, or at least a number of years, in its development.

However, the challenge of coronavirus is just a catalyst for a shift that was underway anyway, with the unpredictability of peak season, store closures and economic uncertainty already forcing retailers to make quick changes to their operations.

Every disruption produces winners and losers. Whether it is the new pressures of Covid-19, long-term economic uncertainty or the evolution of customer expectations, retail is once again in a position where it has to quickly adapt to a new reality. 

In our whitepaper written in association with Manhattan Associates we’ll examine the emerging new paradigm in retail and how cloud-native software can support this transition.
