Using Weather Data to Improve Supply Chain Resiliency

I had an opportunity to talk to Joanne Wright of IBM last week.  Ms. Wright is a Vice President of Supply Chain; she has a charming Scottish brogue. Ms. Wright has overall global leadership of the supply chain team across procurement, manufacturing, demand management, quality, and supply chain risk management for mainframes, POWER-based servers, storage products, and client solutions across the company’s cognitive and cloud platform product lines. IBM manages more than $30 billion a year as part of its supply chain, with thousands of supply chain managers and analysts worldwide.
