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.

The disconnect between plans and reality often undermine confidence in the effectiveness of planning processes. One of the main causes of this disconnect is latency in decision-making: the time between an event being detected (or predicted) and action being taken.
This discussion will explore how this gap can be closed using an integrated  business planning and execution framework which can realise value from investments in IoT and AI.

The pandemic has prompted a shift to non-store channels, including delivery and click & collect, accelerating a trend that was already well established. For many, the response has been tactical with a 'whatever it takes' approach to serving customers however they wish. In tandem with the drive to reduce waste, there are important questions about whether the status quo is sustainable or whether a fundamental re-think and re-design of supply chain operations, enabled by digital technologies, is now an urgent priority. If so, how?
