We at DCRA have watched for decades how traditional information technology resources take any problem and when applying technology tend to if not openly push to centralize the solution. We believe the answer in supply chain and in particular S&OP is the a decentralized computing architecture
We have used the approach for decades with enormous ROI success for clients but when we turn technology to IT they tend to centralize.
