Why is supply chain management so important? For the answer to that question, we can turn to an unlikely source: infamous bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton. When asked why he robbed banks, Sutton replied matter-of-factly, “Because that’s where the money is.” Now, whether Sutton really uttered this witty remark is unclear, but the message resonates: when it comes to a company’s costs, the supply chain is where the money is.

 
 
According to the Supply Chain Council, the supply chain accounts for 60–90 percent of all company costs. It plays such a vital role that a mere 2 percent improvement in supply chain process efficiency has a staggering 30,000–50,000 percent more of an impact than a 2 percent efficiency improvement in any other functional area. With numbers like that, it’s easy to see why we’re obsessed with solving supply chain problems. And we solve those problems using best-in-class​ technologies from Microsoft.
