Radius / Unity Central Supply Chain Control Tower

As supply chains become longer, more global, and increasingly complex, a control tower enables a bird’s eye view of the supply chain network to ensure that all the parts are moving together and performing as expected

Today’s supply chains have become incredibly complicated. A recent Gartner survey found that 85 percent of respondents felt that supply chain complexity is a significant and growing challenge for their operations. The business hurdle in this path is the disconnect and lack of visibility across departments and global external partners. The technological hurdle is the siloed and misaligned structured and unstructured information contained in emails, PDFs, website, SQL databases, and EDI feeds and the inability to capture change as all this information is exchanged between all participants as part of a process over time

This means before any of this enterprise information becomes actionable, Enterprise IT must transform the document into a SQL unit for information and then someone must write a query to describe the relationship to correlate information within various sources of data. This is very expensive and has a real loss of fidelity and still doesn’t cover a major percentage of the enterprise data stored in emails, documents, pdfs, websites, and blogs

Supply Chain Control Tower Challenges

Limited Visibility
Conventional control towers offer a very limited form of visibility, emphasizing visibility into one part of the chain at the expense of another​
Difficult ETL
Conventional control towers require a lot of manual processes and large teams of people to operate​. 80 percent of the time spent working with data is spent collecting and preparing it for analysis.
Limited Data
80% of supply chain data is unstructured making it difficult to bring into  conventional control towers​

Introducing the Boardwalk Radius Control Tower

The Boardwalk Radius / Unity Central Supply Chain Control Tower leverages the Network of Words (NOW) patented technology that absorbs structured and unstructured elements to chart courses and derive insights that were previously not available to the enterprise either at all or not in a timely manner​​
Other visibility and analytics solutions focus on transactional DATA which is primarily historical. You need transparency and visibility into structured and unstructured data
Seamlessly collects, correlates, and curates a data store of words that are sourced from structured and unstructured forms, e.g., SQL tables, bill of materials, documents, images, videos, emails, call logs and many others

You can't wait to find out what is impacting your business until its been captured, extracted, transformed, and loaded. Business moves to fast to work with just "data" anymore

It's about time business professionals had a solution which spoke the WORDS of their business rather than the transformed and compromised DATA from IT
To make informed decisions, you need to know who changed what, when, and why-- only a Digital Ledger provides full, granular data history as part of its core capabilities


Managing changes at the lowest level of data granularity helps you understand and track the relationship of your enterprise data as it changes over time which lowers your business and operational risk
