Supply Chain shortcomings fuel growing realization that existing IT systems are inadequate to support SCM data and process complexity. This increases pressure on IT, but attempts to find adequate solutions are fragmented, lack direction, and ultimately do not yield the desired outcomes. There is no overarching definition for supply chain in the organization as it means different things to different people. As the organization scaled up, the complexity of Supply Chain has increased exponentially, and the skills don’t currently exist in house to deal with such complexity. Inadequate planning has adverse effect on the rest of the Supply Chain activities, and technology is blamed for the lack of enablement.
