Big Data in the Supply Chain: Analytics for Intelligent Decision Making

The 2013 event has now passed. Sorry you missed it! Find out more information on 2014 here

Big data is becoming everyone's business. Is it yours? Big data is no longer a field solely for IT executives, scientists and analysts - it's the responsibility of you and your supply chain too

The Big Data in the Supply Chain Summit will give you the concrete insight you need on:

  • Evaluating the pitfalls and benefits of a big data solution implementation - ensure that you view big data as a profit centre in order to remove complexity from your supply chain
  • The top 5 applications of big data technologies to supply chain functions - hear from early adopters on the projects that they've implemented and how you can apply their success to your business - See the case studies here
  • Moulding big data techniques to aid your decision making processes for every supply chain issue
  • Leveraging data as an asset to the supply chain department - understand the importance of managing and standardizing both structured and unstructured data
  • Implement a cultural shift - ensure that you hire the right people, from statisticians to "game changers" and clearly define their roles to support the overall strategy of big data in the supply chain

Due to the hands-on, interactive nature of this forum, we have a limit of 40 tickets available for the event. To find out how you can get involved, click here
