B2B information sharing Leading to Improvements in Supply Chain

A blog published in gxsblogs.com (OpenText Study Proves that B2B Integration Significantly Improves Supply Chain Performance, dtd 4/1/2015) discusses how B2B data integration between manufacturers is helping companies improve their supply chain performance while reducing costs. With the advent of Data sharing (through EDI and other data integration tools) and rise of data driven manufacturing, there is even more scope for integration of demand driven manufacturing planning. The result will be faster turnaround time and elimination of many middle nodes, thus reducing costs and process wastages (a la Uber). What effect will data integration have on traditional supply chain roles? How comfortable are manufacturing companies with 100% data sharing? Does the current data cloud offer enough protection to ensure that data is not leaked to competitors or hackers?
