Cloud computing for logistics: transparent processes for more efficiency
As the demands on logistics processes increase, so does the need for intelligent IT solutions. With the help of cloud computing, complex data volumes can be better used to form the basis for decision-making. The advantage of the cloud is that management and maintenance of IT infrastructure are outsourced. This increases flexibility in terms of warehouse management and ensures scalability.
Aspects that cloud computing supports in logistics
- Central connection of all logistically relevant data
- Better basis for decision-making (keyword: predictive analysis)
- Reduction of the picking effort
- Cost-effective assurance of a high level of IT security
In short, cloud computing creates the basis for complex, adaptable logistics processes without lengthy and expensive investments in an in-house IT infrastructure. In addition, integration and migration of data from different sources is possible through a variety of interfaces.
