If you are a supply chain professional, you probably already know this: Building analytics solutions that produce actual value is usually a very complex endeavour which requires a lot of thought, time and effort. The main reason is that the data you need to consolidate to get value is typically very fragmented and lives in multiple data sources, both internally, externally (at suppliers/customers) and in between (e.g. forwarders, agents, etc.). Some data might not even be possible to access.
