You use artificial intelligence (AI) every day.

When you ask Alexa or Siri a question, do a Google search, buy an Amazon-recommended product, or watch a Netflix-recommended series, AI is behind the scenes.

Many industries use AI to automate processes, improve decision-making, and drive innovation. And savvy business leaders are exploring AI’s power when evaluating new technology to increase agility and outshine their competitors.

AI is embedded into SAP cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, and these solutions aren’t a luxury only big businesses can afford.

SAP Business AI connects companies’ finance, procurement, human resources, marketing, sales, IT, and supply chain processes.

This article highlights how SAP Business AI is a game-changer in modern digital supply chains.

Supply chains are becoming more complex, affecting everything from design to sourcing, production, distribution, and maintenance.

Business leaders are making efficient, agile, resilient supply chains their top priority and a critical step in digital transformation.

AI empowers today’s digital supply chain with its ability to analyze massive amounts of data, understand relationships, provide visibility into operations, and support better decision-making.

Here are five areas where SAP Business AI plays a pivotal role in reshaping how supply chains are optimized and managed.
