We are moving from the buzzword “Internet of Things” (IoT) to the term “digitization.” As a supply chain professional, the digitization I’m most interested in is the “digital supply chain.” The concept of the digital supply chain encompasses IoT, but also includes the idea that sensor data needs to be leveraged in applications that take that sensor data, turn it into actionable tasks that are embedded in the right process step that can be executed by the right person.

Using sensor data in real-time is nothing new in logistics. In the logistics space, for example, we’ve been taking RF scans and using that data to improve warehouse processes since at least 1975 when McHugh Freeman, an early warehouse management system supplier, began business. And the use of GPS in Internet enabled fleet routing and tracking solutions has existed since the turn of the century.


But in a larger sense, we are only scratching the surface of what is possible with a digital supply chain. As is often the case, Bill Gates got there in his thinking some years before the rest of us.
