After a long quiet period, companies again are starting to increase investments in supply-chain technology. To better understand what is at the top of their shopping lists, GL&SCS partnered with the Aberdeen Group to conduct a comprehensive technology survey of its supply-chain management readers. The primary goal was to determine what capabilities and enabling technologies companies consider most important to achieving supply-chain excellence.
Key takeaways reveal that companies continue to see cost minimization as a primary goal. At the same time, however, they want applications that will help them thrive in an era of complex, multi-party relationships and dynamically changing customer requirements. Keenly sought attributes include those that close the gap between planning and execution processes, enable cross-functional management and help manage multiple types of supply chains.
Beth Enslow - Aberdeen's vice president of enterprise research will analyze and discuss survey results. She will identify specific solutions that companies plan next to add to their technology footprints, conditions driving their choices and what these decisions mean in terms of emerging best practices.
Jean V. Murphy - Editorial Director of Global Logistics & Supply Chain Strategies, is an award-winning journalist and editor with many years of experience in the field of supply chain management. Jean will be acting as Moderator for this Webinar.
