Lack of current data to face increased disruptions

"We all know that to execute on bad data risks disrupting your entire network.

If you don’t have technology at the core of your decision making you have no ability to adapt and change “in the moment”, you’ll always be reactive.

Everyone needs to prioritise data sharing and transparency."
