Transforming supply chain and logistics analytics at Avnet with ThoughtSpot and Azure Synapse

Supply chain and logistics operations can be a company's biggest source of financial risk or competitive advantage. The key is reconciling external supplier data like tariff and shipping information with internal data to deliver insights across teams and geographies.

For Avnet, a global technology solutions provider that delivers supply chain expertise for customers at every stage of the product lifecycle, unleashing personalized insights and driving millions in savings starts with the right analytics stack.
