Digital to Win

Mastering the Matrix

No force for supply chain change has ever been more important than digital.  It is transforming how we sense demand and understand the risks in supply.  It is also changing the mechanisms of response, both in sourcing and manufacturing and in terms of customer fulfillment.  Everything from blockchain and artificial intelligence to 3D printing and drones promises disruptive change to supply chain strategies.

This event is about developing a practical roadmap to tackle this challenge.  We’ll use a versatile framework that helps distil strategic and tactical thinking about digital into a single page view that encompasses radical change while building on existing systems and infrastructure:

Roadmapping

Using an organizing framework known as the Matrix, we’ll explore how companies are adding new digital technologies to legacy ERP and other supply chain applications, while looking ahead five years to enhancements from both operational technologies like robotics and IoT and information technologies like AI and cloud.  The intent is to help attendees develop or validate multi-year roadmaps to their own digital futures.

Pilots

Many emerging technologies are already live in pilots around the supply chain community.  We’ll hear about real life examples of uberization, machine learning, collaborative robots, digital control towers and more.  The discussion will include not only how and why such pilots have been started, but how the business cases were developed.

Transformation

Digital can transform business processes to be sure, but it also creates opportunities to transform the business itself.  X-as-a-Service business models have arisen in capital equipment, consumer electronics and even healthcare.  Total transformation is a reality that supply chain executives need to face now.  We’ll take a look over the horizon to how digital can and will reshape entire industries.

Connect with your peers

Want real takeaways from senior practitioners and peers of your level, to take back to the office?   SCM World Live’s unique format is a strictly closed-door, cross-industry forum. There’s no press, vendor exhibition or media allowed, so your conversations with fellow industry leaders will remain confidential and you’ll experience an environment without vendor solicitation.

 Keynote Sessions and Panel Discussions

Senior leaders share practical insights into their supply chain operations and you can question them directly to get to the heart of all the key issues.

 Executive Huddles

Small, private roundtable discussions focusing on the critical issues affecting the future of the profession. As all dialogue remains strictly confidential, you can speak openly and freely without any risk of later citation.

 1-2-1 Peer Connections

You can pre-book private face-to-face meetings with executive peers attending the forum using a private online portal running up to and during the event. Gain real practical insights into what other companies and industries are doing to take back to your boardroom.

 Informal Networking

A host of informal and relaxed networking opportunities over the course of the forum provide plenty of opportunity to enjoy time out from the intense business discussions and reflect with peers on the key themes of the day.

Want to know more about who will be attending?
