10 questions about outsourcing statistical forecasting

Can your organization benefit from Forecasting as a Service (FaaS)? Chainalytics and Supply Chain Media have created this checklist to help you assess whether your organization should outsource its statistical forecasting.

But as a company you need more than just technological applications and forecasting methods to support the complexities found in modern supply chains.

If you find yourself in this position, then you must decide if you want to ‘make’ the best team or ‘buy’ statistical forecasting as a service from a third-party provider.
