Abstract: Flexible and agile supply chains (SCs) add value by facilitating cost optimisation. Exceptional opportunities are being offered by smartening the SCs. The key is to further enhance the intelligence and intellect of the SCs by using analytics. Use of advanced analytics warrants proficient SC management that primes SC performance and helps to attain competitive advantage. It is worth noting that while this topic, in general, has attracted attention, there is a dearth of related work especially in the context of emerging markets. Many questions are yet unanswered and many aspects also remain unexplored, such as, what are the enablers for the adoption of advanced analytics in SC and the effects of the implementation of advanced analytics on SC performance indicators like flexibility and agility. Through this research work, with the help of detailed and structured literature review, prudent and viable organisational enablers for the adoption of advanced analytics in SC have been proposed. This research work other than adding to the existing knowledge base is intended to aid in acquiring a comprehensive understanding of the topic by the policy and decision makers.

Keywords: advanced analytics; supply chain performance; flexibility; agility; organisational enablers.
