" /> Digital Supply Chain Transformation - Bristlecone

DIGITAL SUPPLY CHAIN TRANSFORMATION

We empower businesses with the ability to forecast accurately, increase savings, lower risk, foster customer engagement and improve overall corporate health. We do that by aligning supply chains with strategic goals and by building agile, digitally connected supply chains that are robust, resilient – and ultimately, antifragile.

DIGITAL SUPPLY CHAIN TRANSFORMATION

ANTIFRAGILITY

We now live in a world where disruption is the new normal. The threats we face are severe and the risks are greater than ever. Resiliency is crucial. Supply chains must be shock-proof against natural disasters, terrorism, legislative changes, geopolitical challenges, shifting consumer trends and material shortages.

But even resiliency isn’t enough anymore.

Today, businesses must be antifragile. They need to be able to sense change and anticipate downturns, even welcome them as a stress test on the fundamentals of the business. They need to be able to adapt with ease, rapidly capitalize on disruptions, and create value and positive social impact – even when faced with adversity.

Organizations don’t become antifragile overnight. Antifragility isn’t an event or a project. It’s a path, a journey, a movement along a continuum, a conscious and continuous effort to increase operational effectiveness.

Our expertise lies in helping businesses reach the point of antifragility by progressing, one step at a time, along the antifragility spectrum. What we do is both systematic and artistic – perhaps the convergence of the two is what makes us unique. We not only bring an extensive technology portfolio into every client engagement, but also our supply chain expertise and deep understanding of what it takes to achieve antifragility.

SERVICES

Our end-to-end services are aimed at helping businesses achieve antifragility.

DIAGNOSTICS AND ROADMAPPING

We’ll take a deep dive into your current situation and create a roadmap for change.

  • Antifragility: Measure your current state of antifragility and establish transformation goals.
  • Gap Analyses: Identify areas for improvement across processes, systems, reporting and user adoption.
  • Technical Diagnostics: Rationalize and optimize utilization of the existing technical infrastructure.
  • Security Diagnostics: Expose and resolve security risks to prevent critical security issues.
  • Roadmapping: Create a framework for change, with a focus on quick wins and limited disruption.

DEPLOYMENT, INTEGRATION AND TESTING

We achieve seamless supply chain deployments and migrations by expertly managing the many moving parts spanning platforms, projects, processes and people. We create homogenous IT ecosystems by integrating disparate systems and data sources across on-premise, mobile, cloud and hybrid environments.

DATA AND ANALYTICS

We find hidden data assets across the entire IT landscape, aggregate data sources and provide a single source of truth for enterprise information that is timely, reliable, accessible and secure. We’ll help you visualize data and leverage real-time analytics to unlock key insights that would otherwise get lost in a deluge of data.

MIGRATION

Migration of data from legacy systems can be risky, especially when it is harvested from multiple sources. We tap into our technical proficiency to execute migrations from a multitude of systems, while harmonizing data to improve quality. To expedite the process, we leverage our prebuilt extractors, mappings and workflows.

MOBILITY

Our platform-agnostic solutions incorporate responsive designs, robust security, usage analytics, and support for native mobile apps and data sources. By arming users with instant access to enterprise applications on every device, you can streamline workflows, increase engagement, and fuel timely, informed decision-making.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT AND TRAINING

Most change initiatives fall short of achieving the required adoption level because they fail to see the risks and challenges. We address the people side of change management. We manage expectations, raise awareness, develop and deliver consistent communications, entice participation, and increase user skill and confidence.

MANAGED SERVICES

We provide system maintenance, support and end-of-life services. But we go beyond traditional managed services to deliver value-added services aimed at helping clients react quickly to changing market dynamics, gain productivity, achieve better business alignment, increase transparency and improve business outcomes.

PLATFORMS

When it comes to achieving antifragility, legacy systems just won’t cut it. We offer the best platforms on the market – though we focus on improving operational agility and real-time visibility, not pushing a platform.

SUPPLY CHAIN PLANNING

Businesses must keep an eye on operating costs and profit margins, meet the high expectations of customers, and react quickly to changes in supply and demand. Bristlecone addresses these requirements with best-in-class supply chain and business planning platforms from Oracle, SAP, etc. From what-if simulations and real-time alerts to predictive analytics and advanced algorithms, every platform features powerful planning tools. We couple this planning power with our proprietary assets and expertise to drive supply chain agility.

SAP S/4HANA

Bristlecone builds rapidly deployable solutions on SAP S/4HANA. Proprietary frameworks and accelerators enable us to mitigate migration risks and simplify adoption. We integrate collaboration tools to streamline core business functions, including sourcing, sales, manufacturing, distribution and finance. We also leverage our prebuilt industry-specific process maps and repository of artifacts that accelerate financial reporting, simplify logistics and enhance supply chain management. Capitalizing on SAP Fiori, we deliver a seamless role-oriented, consumer-grade user experience across devices.

ORACLE SCM

Bristlecone has extensive experience with Oracle installations in complex, fragmented technology landscapes. We offer Oracle SCM products that modernize operations across the demand, supply and product pillars – and ultimately transform supply chains from functional necessity to competitive advantage. We have developed dozens of integration connectors and adapters that decrease implementation timelines and enable businesses to get more from their Oracle solutions. We also have a selection of industry-focused accelerators, predefined templates and other assets for both on-premise and cloud-based Oracle installations.

ACCELERATORS

Our accelerators jump-start deployments to lower engagement costs and drive faster time-to-value.

  • Industry-in-a-Box accelerators and templates for industry-specific business processes.
  • Library of Prebuilt Integrations for Oracle and SAP rollouts and platform coexistence.
