    Your supply chain is the life blood of your organization. But lack of visibility and supply chain disruptions continue to be an ongoing issue, especially now, when navigating economic headwinds and ongoing disruptions. Achieving supply chain excellence today requires orchestrating complex global operations with agility and adapting to rapid and continuous change. Yet only 22 percent of companies have a proactive supply chain network, meaning disruptions or shifts in supply or demand can quickly escalate into significant issues. 

    To truly deliver a proactive, resilient supply chain, Chief Supply Chain Officers (CSCOs) need a clear digital transformation strategy that builds on top of existing investments in data to uncover new insights in real-time. At the same time, CSCOs must enable the adoption of new productivity tools, such as generative AI, to help organizations rethink the status quo.   

    Microsoft released Dynamics 365 Copilot to bring next-generation AI to every line of business. It can help CSCOs solidify the strategic importance of supply chain functions and its value as strategic business partners. Microsoft Supply Chain Center empowers supply chain professionals to use AI copilots to generate actionable insights based on real-time data to increase productivity, shorten lead times, and improve overall supply chain performance.   

     Supply chain leaders can utilize Microsoft Dynamics 365 to:

    Is your Current Supply Chain Technology Ill-equipped? 

    In recent years, many businesses discovered that their current supply chain technologies are ill-equipped for an environment characterized by ongoing disruptions, constraints, and shortages. AI-enabled supply chain management can provide unprecedented visibility and insights, helping to solve disruptions before they happen. 

    New Copilot capabilities for Microsoft Supply Chain Center, available to Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management customers, better predict and act on disruptions that occur across suppliers, weather, and geographies. Copilot uses up-to-the-minute intelligence from the news module to proactively flag external issues such as weather, financial, and geo-political news that may impact key supply chain processes. Predictive insights surface impacted orders across materials, inventory, carrier, distribution network, and more. 

    Copilot turns these insights into action with contextual email outreach generated by Azure OpenAI Service to help solve problems in real-time. With a custom and contextual reply, supply chain managers can save time and collaborate with impacted suppliers to quickly identify new ETAs and re-route purchase orders based on an identified disruption, like a weather event. They can also fulfill high-priority customer orders via an alternate distribution center to ensure they can meet customer demand in full and on time. 

    Reducing Supply Chain Costs from 9% to 4% can Double Profits 

    Supply chains have a huge impact on company profits, so optimization and cost reduction is always valuable. This is especially true for Industrial Suppliers, where the average supply chain cost is 13.2%, while the best companies have managed to optimize this number to 7.9%. That’s a 40% savings. With a more intelligent, informed supply chain, you can reduce cost with Microsoft Copilot. 

    AI in Supply Chain 

    Supply chains are a prime area for the application of AI, due to the vast amounts of critical business data and processes involved. Supply chains have evolved over the years, with emerging technologies and innovations that enable businesses to optimize their operations, reduce costs, and improve customer satisfaction. Yet, while statistical models have been used in processes such as inventory management, forecasting, production planning, and scheduling, there hasn’t been a significant shift in the industry beyond improving algorithms. Learning hasn’t been applied to make supply chain processes intelligent and self-regulating. The next generation of AI will transform the industry by making it more agile, efficient, and responsive to changes.
