What Is Smart?
SMART is the new age- the age where everyone and everything will be increasingly connected to the internet giving rise to lots of internet savvy, "give it to me now" mentality people. These people will be connected to each other (Social) and be constantly on the go (Mobile). There will be a tremendous amount of data generated which will be even more difficult to slice and dice (Analytics). We need to Re-imagine everything- the rules, the restrictions, the impossible and view it in a new Technology framework
Why SMART and Why Supply Chain? Why the two together?
The world is becoming increasingly connected. By 2020, an estimate 4 billion people are going to be connected to the internet. These people are going to be truly global- developed, developing and also surprisingly under-developed nations will have a burst of people who will be connected, social and mobile. With so many people coming online, the demand for goods and services in a highly responsive fashion is going to stress supply chain management to the max. It is high time when supply chain stops ignoring the outburst, becomes realistic and plans out how the fraternity will cope with this new global challenge. Similarly a connected world with internet of things will drastically alter the economy and outlook of industries totally.
India’s demographic contours and its dividends need to be fully harnessed as the global community is fully aware of the growing middle class in India and eye it as a destination to be in. SMART is the only way ahead and each of us is a game changer in our own domains.
