In this Cloud Wars Expo moment, Bob Evans and Luyi Yang, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Berkeley Haas, discuss how companies are connecting supply and demand chains. Luyi offers his thoughts on how companies are doing this and the importance behind it.
00:44 — How well are companies connecting supply and demand chains? Yang explains that they are not doing it well enough. When it comes to the supply chain, the marketing department is in charge of the demand side of products while the operations department is focused on the supply side of products.
00:54 — In order for companies to maximize profitability and still be sustainable, companies must match supply with demand.
01:24 — It is essential to promote dialogue between operations and marketing departments, states Yang. He says this is the most effective way to integrate supply and demand change.
