Your team members are like different pieces of a complex machine called “Organization”. All these wonderful and smart (smarter than AI) components need to work together in harmony to deliver business success. Any glitch in their collaboration or functionality can potentially bring the entire machine to a complete halt.
According to Google Cloud 85% of employees are often disengaged, costing trillions in lost productivity. Regular IT issues, unnecessary calls & emails, excessive emails and many redundant unproductive work pulls your team in a swamp of remote working operational issues. With cloud technology, all these issues can be solved.
Today, the current market landscape pushes us to innovate and adapt to the remote working culture, and GSuite helps you work faster, smarter and more collaboratively.
GSuite, the “the future of collaboration & productivity” can give back 21 days per user per year in time savings.
Gone are the days where even a small change in the document had to be communicated via email or required a phone call. With the advent of fast growing startups, we are in an era where speed of execution matters a lot. Fast execution is a critical aspect when it comes to surviving and growing in a highly competitive ecosystem.
According to Forrester, “Automation will create 14.9 million new jobs—and transform 85% of existing ones—by 2027”. GSuite by Google Cloud is exactly what you need for transforming the way your employees work and teams collaborate.
A larger team can provide diverse inputs and transform that report or presentation into the best one. However, the challenge with multiple team members working on the same document is that there will be multiple changes and suggestions. In a physical setting it was still not a big hassle, as everybody could fit in a conference hall to discuss. But remote working makes it next to impossible for everyone to work on one piece of document. G Suite is built on Google Cloud, which makes it easier than ever to work together on the same document at the same time, from anywhere in the world, and from any device.
G Suite is brewed in Google’s leading AI and search technology, that gives you an assistant that would correct minor flaws in your written content, and the in-built “Explore” feature brings the capabilities of search engines in your documents, helping you increase your productivity. On top of it, Google Assistant integrations let you manage your meetings and schedule on the go.
Banks, financial institutions, and payment wallets have moved to Google Cloud, which can be translated in only one way – “ Google’s data safety protocols are the best in the class”. By blocking 99.9% of spam and phishing emails, G Suite not only saves your organization data but also assures your team that their personal and financial information is safe too. Creating a stress free virtual working environment for them. A point to note here is that there have been “ZERO” detected account hijackings so far.
With or without knowing we all have been leveraging the power of cloud technologies in our everyday lives now. It is undeniable that Google is a leader in data management and analytics, but it has not given up the throne when it comes to cloud either. The benefits of being on Google Cloud can be innumerable but today let us discuss about top 3 benefits:
Your data is your intellectual property, it is the mine of fortunes for your business, which makes it critical for you to protect it. With state-of-the-art security standards Google, has been efficiently protecting the data for about 15 years now. With Google Cloud you can be focused on your business and be less stressed about your data security.
Getting your data on the cloud is one thing but driving intelligence and tangible benefits from it is another. With Google Cloud, you also gain access to a wide network of skilled partners like Pluto7 that enable integrations, build custom ML models for you, and really hand hold you through your cloud and transformation journey.
A private network spread globally and connected data centres. With Google Cloud you are accessing not just the internet but their backbone network, it is blazing fast, as mentioned by Will Shulman,Co-Founder of MongoLab.
Your first step towards your cloud journey can be overwhelming, but that is where we come in.
Pluto7 being a Google Cloud Premier partner and winner of Partner of the Year award for Data & Analytics 2019 . Companies of any size or any data volume can begin their cloud journey today.
We are here to guide you through your cloud and would love to first understand where exactly you are in that journey, so feel free to contact us. .
Imagine yourself holding a giant chain that spans across your network of suppliers and cuts through geographical boundaries. On one end it is controlled by you as the supply chain leader while on the other end, it is controlled by your end consumer.
If your customers love your products, they pull the chain harder, pushing you forward. However, if they aren’t satisfied with the quality of your products, they might lose their grip on the chain, making you move backwards. It is true that in both cases you are trying to maintain the tension in your supply chain, so that it does not touch the ground.
Given the new market conditions, probably you are not able to predict the tension in the chain for the first time in your experience. The fluctuation in demand patterns have seen peaks or dips that were never recorded in such a small time frame.
At Pluto7, we always have found solutions, and this time it is no different as demand forecasting has to be reimagined for retail businesses. We all agree the chain cannot lose tension and touch the ground.
There are questions all around us: “When are things getting normal?” ; “Who will win the vaccine race?” ; “ When will the tooth fairy arrive ?” and all the nine yards. We are overwhelmed by questions from our family, team, and that flashy spammy email subject line that says “Do you even supply chain ?”. It is not the very nature or subject of these questions that take us for a ride, but the uncertain times. The demand for accurate forecasting in these uncertain times has skyrocketed.
Pluto7 has time and again proven that forecast accuracy can be optimized if data patterns are closely watched rather than relying on human judgements and overrides. Equipped with domain knowledge and deep expertise working on Google Cloud Platform, Pluto7 team has been able to drive forecast accuracy by 95%+ — which was considered not possible in some cases.
Currently, many organizations are moving from their initial response phase to the recovery phase, and they would slowly move through restoration and achieve the prevention stage (as shown by Gartner).
Demand forecasting has to be re-imagined and here are five key elements that you can focus on to get started:
Companies need to ignite innovation and combine it with an agile supply chain strategy. It is important to include clear definitions of forecast accuracy and baseline values. Additionally, leaders should set expectations for existing and new products, including the time horizon for forecast and such key guidelines.
To make your forecast more accurate, allow the team to centralize the data into a repository where they do not have to worry about storage costs or computation costs. Allowing a data scientist or a machine learning expert to enable key data points without technical constraints will help them identify new signals and trends that are not obvious.
Raise the bar above the current norm for forecast accuracy and yet be realistic. Often we have seen customers get caught up with the ML model that gets used and test it. The ML model identification is the relatively easiest part and relative to the less complex part in the long run, but it will be harder to get the data in, processed, and get people buying to adopt ML over their own decision making.
ML-based forecast accuracy is proven to be better over and over, across industries if you look in the right areas. Stock market, healthcare, space exploration has written thousands of models that are now packaged as ML models and algorithms in many white papers published by Google.
Augmenting and not replacing humans should be the first approach so that the humans can help achieve extraordinary forecast accuracy not seen as possible before, and run 100s and 1000s of scenarios with ML models to simulate the business forecast in the “New Normal”.
It is suggested that you take a deeper look at the discussion by reading this free whitepaper drafted by our AI experts: Leverage real-time demand forecasting to build an agile Supply Chain and optimize business continuity.
Companies of all sizes need to have an ability to plan for various scenarios while bringing agility into their supply chain. It sounds easy, however, experimenting with new technology can always be a challenge — and that is where we can help!
