Online PR News – 25-March-2015 – USA – Antuit, a global Big Data solutions company, and A*STAR’s Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) today announced the formation of the Antuit-SIMTech Supply Chain Analytics Lab, a two-year research collaboration to develop analytics-based solutions for emerging supply chain problems. Antuit is an execution-oriented Big Data solutions firm that enables enterprise clients to unlock business value from "big and little data" through a spectrum of data management, visualization, predictive and optimization solutions.
Housed at SIMTech, the Lab will focus on areas such as the application of data sciences in supply chain planning, supply chain risk mitigation, the use of Internet and communication tools to improve supply chain visibility, yield prediction in precision farming and agriculture, and disruption prediction and demand forecasting through the use of big data and social media. It will provide collaborative workspace for research, experimentation and innovation, leveraging Antuit’s analytics services expertise and SIMTech’s capabilities in research and development.
By bringing together business practitioners and leading academics to work on real business problems, Antuit and SIMTech have taken a step towards creating long-term business benefits and outcomes that can deliver as much as 5-10 times more benefit than traditional supply chain solutions deliver today. “The quality and diversity of available data, when coupled with new tools and greater expertise, will fundamentally transform data-led decision making in the next three to five years,” said Arijit Sengupta, founder and CEO of Antuit. “This is particularly true in the supply chain arena where approaches and technologies have not evolved significantly over the last five years. Together with SIMTech, we are investing in R&D to build next-generation methodologies and tools that link supply chain analytics into Big Data. At the same time, we are establishing a platform for Antuit and SIMTech to emerge as innovators in the analytics space.”
