Microsoft and JDA invite you to the upcoming Dinner in Chicago on March 13th, 2019 at The Tortoise Supper Club located at 350 North State Street Chicago, Illinois 60654.

 C-suite executives within industries such as retail, consumer goods, grocery and pharmaceuticals are facing extraordinary changes in their supply chain with the advent of disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and more. During this session, we will examine the challenges and benefits in adopting these technologies and the long-term impacts to the supply chain.

In order to compete with the leaders in the industry, companies have to be nimble, innovative and rapidly adapt to change. What are successful executives doing to help drive this within their organizations? What technologies are necessary to stay ahead of the competition? What process changes have to be made to win?

Dinner and Discussion 

Digital Transformation in Today’s Supply Chain

The peer driven discussion will review the challenge that companies are facing as they Digitize their Supply Chains from an IT standpoint. For all the effort that companies devote to improving the performance of their supply chains, relatively few have unlocked the full potential of digital technologies. The right approach to digitizing supply chains integrates suitable leading-edge technologies with revamped operations.

At the enterprise level, digital transformation means employing analytics, artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, and other advanced technologies to collect and process information automatically and either support decision making and other activities or automate them altogether

The session will also look at:

• The newest digital technologies that leaders can integrate better to ensure methods for collaboration
• Planning an effective digital transformation of a supply chain
• End-to-end customer engagement.
• Assessing the supply chain
