  4. 4. Copyright © 2014 Accenture All rights reserved. 4 Unleash Your Data to Empower Your Employees, Supply Chain and Consumers THE IMPACT: • Data is not static, it should not live in silos and it has no real end point • It is becoming part of a “Circular Economy”, living and breathing through the data supply chain, being shared, used and even returned like other products • Pull data from across the value chain over and again, using it to make better business decisions and deliver personalized experiences WHY IT MATTERS NOW: • Easy availability of data is allowing companies to innovate in analytics – identify your strategic issues, then source the data you need from new technologies – iBeacons, video analytics and others – and new partners • As consumers demand customization, the best forecasters will be fastest to market and most efficient, serving the right stock at the right time • In the factory, machine learning algorithms will help maximize manufacturing uptime by alerting employees to predictive maintenance
  5. 5.

  9. 9. Copyright © 2014 Accenture All rights reserved. 9 Bringing the Digital / Physical Blur to Life Google Glass Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Wristband Nest Learning Thermostat Today’s latest innovations blur the digital / physical line

  13. 13. Copyright © 2014 Accenture All rights reserved. 13 Tapping the Full Potential of Crowdsourcing Companies are turning to Kaggle to help solve problems ranging from retail store location optimization to airline flight optimization PepsiCo’s “Do Us A Flavor” campaign, asks consumers to come up with the next flavors of Frito Lay chips - with over 4 million interactions in the first US program

  22. 22. Copyright © 2014 Accenture All rights reserved. 22 Bringing Architecting Resilience to Life Netflix uses a program called Chaos Monkey—an attack force whose entire mission is to try and make Netflix’s systems fail. The company learns from each attack to build up resilience. This is the kind of mindset very few CPG companies have, yet it is a critical factor for success in the digital world
