I will be writing these series at ITToolBox, a CEB (NYSE:EXBD) subsidiary.
So we have briefly, discussed this problem ans surely there is more than meets the eye. I am sure a lot of firms (established and new) are adopting all kinds of research methodologies" to get into this market. A lot of them are using, and I would definitely recommend, given the current horizontalized global market which is not an easy place to be around if you have a weak stomach, to adopt a more "Adventurous or Exploratory Research Designs". I have spoken to one firm called Embotics and they are really very much into this, doing it closely with their partners, so a lot of things are happening behind closed doors. lot of insights are being shared (and leaked too! - to China, India, S. Africa etc, don't forget you are in a global market , with connectivity, ideas can flow in "all directions"). Today I will be talking to another start-up firm which is attempting to solve part of that Supply Chaining Puzzle. or can I dare to even compare it to the "Virtual Caliphate", something which US Govt used to attempt to identify the terror networks that took advantage of the infrastructure to spread mayhem.Check it out!
