The Hidden Risk in Your Supply Chain

Uncovering the dangers buried in the IT systems that run your supply chain.

New York — June 25, 2008 — Supply chain risk is a fact of life. Supply interruptions. Fluctuations in demand. Spikes in commodity prices. The list goes on, and every day the morning business news offers up some new challenge from out of left field.

But what if the risk is hiding within the very systems that you use to manage your supply chain?

Recently more companies have focused on supply chain risk management as a discipline to minimize the bottom line impact of potential disruptions. But these enterprises may be overlooking the risk hidden inside the very solutions and technologies that they rely upon to plan and optimize their supply chains.

To better understand these hidden risks, Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine, in conjunction with supply chain consultancy Bristlecone, is conducting a brief survey of supply chain professionals to identify the source of hidden risk in the supply chain; uncover the bottom line impact of ignoring this risk; and compare companies' competence in managing this risk with peers.

Please take five minutes now to participate in this brief survey and, in return, we'll send you a free benchmark report outlining the results of the survey. All individual responses will be kept strictly confidential. We only ask that you complete this survey no later than July 1.
