Achieving a Smarter Supply Chain – Why Collaboration is Key to a Unified Commerce Experience

3rd August 2022, America 11:30 - 13:00 EST

How can your organization collaborate and coordinate better to achieve a smarter, streamlined supply chain?

Prior to the pandemic, most companies worldwide operated a lean supply chain – with a distinct focus on just-in-time delivery of goods. It was accepted best practice, a way of streamlining, reducing costs, becoming more efficient. But Covid and the global disruption it caused has brutally exposed this way of thinking. Today, inventory is crucial.

The worrying thing for business leaders is that supply chain disruption isn’t slowing down, even as we continue to emerge from the pandemic. According to the World Economic Forum, disruption is rising in the US, China and Europe following a slight decline in 2020 – and there may yet be further bumps in the road caused by ongoing geopolitical tensions.

Key to overcoming this – now and in the future - will be collaboration and coordination. From data sharing to integrated digital software, supply chain leaders need to come together in order to create engaging experiences that better manage orders and meet customer expectations, as well as seamlessly connect existing systems and provide better visibility to inventory availability.

Join us for a fascinating virtual discussion with IBM and Adobe on how to solve your supply chain issues, challenges and disruption. Thought-leaders will share their experiences from working in different industries, provide valuable insight into what’s worked, what hasn’t and discuss how you can achieve what all business crave - enterprise-ready streamlined orchestration.
