How Walgreens optimized its supply chain strategy with Kyvos

Being one of the largest retail pharmacy chains in the world, Walgreens wanted to leverage their data to optimize supply chain business strategy. To be able to achieve the use cases that will improve supply chain efficiency and reduce inventory costs, there is a need to process 284 billion rows of inventory data and sales data from over 20,000 suppliers and 9,000 stores. Their current systems were strained while dealing with the scale and cardinality of their data, and could not provide timely insights to thousands of suppliers and business users. The visualizations are essential to support the data sharing strategy between Walgreens and their suppliers. In this talk, Walgreens will describe how they use Kyvos and Tableau to analyze two years of historical data instantly and interactively to get deeper insights into their supply chain.
