How data visualization can drive positive change in your Supply Chain.
Humans are visual creatures. Most of us process information based on what we see. So, if you can visualize information in a meaningful way, it can act as an important driver for change.
Plenty of examples exist today, to prove the effectiveness of this theory. A very cool one, is the Ambient Energy Orb. Created at MIT, it is based on the principle of persuasive ambient visualization, whereby energy consumers cut back on their energy spending through the simple tricolor visualization of the Orb.
Just as the Ambient Orb provided drastic cuts in energy consumption through consumer awareness, so too can visualising data in a smart and intuitive way, drive positive change in your Supply Chain.
But the chances are big that this visual aspect is still missing today. That you and your trading partners are all working in your own bubbles. And that your data is scattered over hundreds or even thousands of databases.
