Supply Chain - Virtual Roundtable

Next generation supply chain management: leveraging AI and data integration

16th September 2021 | 2:30pm - 4:00pm CET
How can you future proof the supply chain with the help of intelligent data use and data integration?

A Meet the Boss Roundtable brought to you by IBM         

Even if timely delivery remains a challenge in many cases, modern supply chains are much more than just the question: when is a product expected at a certain location?

A quick reaction to unforeseen circumstances, cooperation of all players, sustainability and transparency for consumers all play an increasingly important role. The impact of the pandemic, or events which influence the movement of goods, continue to disrupt global supply chains massively.

How organisations respond can have significant consequences for their business results. Even in “normal” times, inventory management and the response to disruptions can have significant consequences.

We know 96 per cent of organisations say that the pandemic will accelerate their digital transformation efforts by 5.3 years on average.

There are a few very effective approaches for agile supply chain management:

  • Improve your planning and supply chain visibility and create a centre of excellence with focus on AI and blockchain
  • Build a modern architecture to have real-time access to data everywhere
  • Use an AI-supported supply chain control tower to predict and solve problems, automate the workflows along your supply chain with an order management system and create transparency and sustainability with the use of blockchain

Join IBM and a select group of industry leaders to discuss how to make your supply chain management more transparent, more efficient and more agile.
