Even if you are very focused on a specific project or focus of supply chain enablement, it's important to see this in the context of a broader digitalisation roadmap. In the interdependent context of supply chain, it's vital to see the dependencies and to understand the target outcomes. In this discussion we explore how to visualise, position, and set a roadmap in place for success, ensuring outcomes meet objectives and avoiding missteps. For this discussion we' draw on expertise from SAP experts Olivehorse, and will involve a range of businesses looking at either wholesale transformation or specific elements of automation.
