Increasingly sophisticated robotics, artificial intelligence, and other technological marvels have already displaced many jobs once done by people—but could an intelligent robot one day take over the CEO’s job?

The idea is not as far-fetched as it sounds. Consider:

Jerry W. Thomas, CEO, Decision Analyst Inc. 

You are not feeling well, so you visit your friendly family doctor. He puts you in a new, electronic scanner and generates 28 trillion measurements of your temperature all over the surface of your body. He then saves all of these big-data measurements and, using advanced statistical algorithms and supercomputers, announces that your temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. What a relief! Big data to the rescue.

The supply chain is gaining in complexity at an alarming rate, creating a deluge of information overload from data generated within supply chain processes. Companies are using Big Data to better understand these massive amounts of data associated with processes and costs related to procurement, manufacturing, distribution, customer service, inventory deployment, freight payment/audit and more. Third-party logistics (3PL) providers are in an ideal position to help their clients harness the power of Big Data and identify relevant and actionable information.
