As we witness piecemeal recovery from the pandemic, and extreme fluctuation due to localised lock downs and restrictions and their effect on consumer behaviour, it's become even more vital to know what's coming next, and where demand will come from. Ticketed events can yield early insight into recovery, acting as a vital data source for those who need to pick up early market signals to be able to avoid shortages and manage supply. In this discussion we'll discuss what insights some companies are already gleaning from events, whilst sharing key intelligence on what events tell us, how you can build the data into your modelling, and how to weight this to get ahead of the curve.    AGENDA  How events are leading demand indicators to help navigate a fragmented recovery How to incorporate future-focused data into your demand forecasting models Real-time data sources - what's possible Understanding multiple types of demand causal factors (unscheduled events, scheduled attended, scheduled non-attended, and Live TV Events)  WHO FOR?

In the past few months, the cost of freight has hit sudden, all-time highs, rendering regular budget planning impossible. How can we get better visibility of costs to pre-empt and avoid additional expense?
 AGENDA 
Mitigating long term freight cost volatility with e2e, SKU-level visibility
What permanent changes are needed to address business risk? What drives unexpected costs to your freight spend? Blind spots: what's preventing or limiting visibility and how can these be eliminated? Data sources: which sources are most reliable and practical for better visibility e.g. real-time satellite data or supplier updates? Examples of data-driven strategies you can adopt to flatten cost volatility, driven by end-to-end, SKU-level visibility of your supply chain  WHO FOR?

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.

 AGENDA 
IBPX: closing the gap between planning and execution
Identifying principle causes of latency, including lack of: visibility scenario planning agility siloed responses Quantifying the implications for working capital and the bottom line How IoT, AI and prescriptive planning reduce latency within and IBPX framework Required foundations, roadmaps and next steps Juniper Networks case study

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?
 AGENDA 
Next-gen omnichannel retailing - e2e visibility & demand shaping
How machine learning can improve forecasting accuracy across channels with leading demand indicators End-to-end omnichannel planning with a singular integrated view on merchandising and supply chain across all channels Leveraging rich customer data to proactively shape demand and reduce waste Best practices for scaling operations automation over time   WHO FOR?

Every supply chain has its idiosyncrasies, every organisation its own patterns of demand and forecasting. There's therefore no fixed way to rate or select 'the best' planning tool - rather you must select the best tool for your organisation. This session is aimed at those who know there is a need for a planning solution or a change of tool; who are evaluating the best options and beginning the process of shortlisting or narrowing down the search. We'll look at selection process and methodology, looking at scorecasrd frameworks that can help prioritise and narrow the field. We'll draw on expertise from experts Olivehorse, and will involve a range of businesses looking at either wholesale transformation or specific elements of automation.
 AGENDA 
How to shortlist and select the best planning tool
Defining your specific needs and core capabilities Advice from experience: what's a wrong decision, and how do you avoid making one? Considering solution lifecycle: capability, support and vendor investment vs. your likely future needs  WHO FOR?
