The world has only so much fresh water - and it's not evenly distributed. The newest version of the World Resource Institute's Water Risk Atlas provides detailed statistics on water risk for every industry, under present conditions and in light of predicted climate change. That means industries who map their supply chains can quickly assess where - and when - to implement water conservation. Above you can see the spread of water scarcity in the Middle East; below the scores for a few hundred textile mills in South and East Asia. Want to learn more? Contact us for a demo.

Most companies lack visibility into their supply chains, and this lack of visibility has clear implications for effective decision making, risk planning, regulatory compliance, planning and optimization. This white paper describes how some of the largest biotechnology, pharmaceutical and apparel companies have improved their operations through visualization, with important benefits such as:
- Finding out how accurate your data is
- Tracing products from farm to table
- Optimizing supply chains for cost, time, and service level
- Identifying supply chain risks and opportunities
- Monitoring every site, every shipment in real time
