The Gartner Supply Chainnovators Program and JDA Software Real Results Award Recognized SanDisk for Driving Better Supply Chain Performance and Elevating the Role of Supply Chain

SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK), a global leader in flash storage solutions, has been recognized in the 2014 Gartner Supply Chainnovators™ research report and has been named a winner of the JDA Software Real Results Award for 2014. SanDisk was given both distinctions for global supply chain innovations that have made a significant impact on the company and its customers.

“SanDisk’s end-to-end vertical integration and commitment to supply chain excellence have played a major role in establishing the company as a trusted leader in flash storage solutions for nearly three decades,” said Manish Bhatia, senior vice president, worldwide operations, SanDisk. “SanDisk’s supply chain capabilities are built on a combination of fundamental Operations Research modeling, advanced optimization planning systems and strong manufacturing execution. These capabilities together allow SanDisk to ship nearly two million products each day while delivering world class service to both our commercial and retail customers.”

SanDisk’s state-of-the-art products and solutions can be found in many of the world's largest data centers; embedded in advanced smartphones, tablets and PCs; and at hundreds of thousands of retail stores worldwide.

SanDisk recently made a number of advancements to further enhance the responsiveness and consistency of the company’s supply chain operations. In 2013, daily end-to-end supply chain planning and replenishment cycles, and a carefully planned manufacturing and inventory postponement strategy enabled SanDisk to improve safety stock and on-time delivery performance metrics by more than 10 percent and deliver on the original promise date more than 95 percent of the time. As a result, the company shortened its frozen production plan period, allowing for highly segmented service levels to meet customer requirements around the world.

“Gartner Supply Chainnovators is a rigorous research and recognition program that highlights the efforts of $1 billion to $10 billion companies to drive better supply chain performance and elevate the role of supply chain,” wrote Dana Stiffler, Research Vice President, et. al, Gartner. “The hurdles for selection are formidable, as companies must demonstrate above-average financial performance, large ROI on a project, or a major turnaround in quantitative and qualitative terms.”

“Congratulations to SanDisk for being named a winner of the 2014 Real Results Award,” said Kevin Iaquinto, chief marketing officer, JDA Software. “The company has taken a proactive and systemic approach to optimizing its supply chain and provides a strong example for how companies can drive greater value and efficiency within their businesses in the process.”

About the Awards

SanDisk was one of only four companies profiled through the Supply Chainnovators program, Gartner’s research program for recognizing leading-edge supply chain work among companies between $1 billion and $10 billion in annual revenue. SanDisk was evaluated for its work in the areas of postponement strategy, multi-echelon inventory optimization, late-stage product differentiation, and financial cost optimization. The report, titled “Supply Chainnovators, 2014: Harnessing Complexity to Elevate Supply Chain,” is available to Gartner clients at gartner.com.

SanDisk was selected as one of nine honorees from a pool of more than 4,000 of JDA’s global customers to receive a JDA Software Real Results Award. The JDA Software Real Results Award was presented at a ceremony during FOCUS 2014, JDA’s annual user conference in Las Vegas.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
