“The future is about this connected enterprise with people working together.”
– Trevor Miles, VP of Thought Leadership at Kinaxis
The first day of Kinexions 2016 introduced the revolution of the supply chain. There’s no stopping the speed at which supply chains are running today, which means businesses have to integrate technology, processes, and people in order to successfully manage their supply chain and mitigate risks that arise.
So how do we actually implement integrated supply chain solutions?
That’s where Day 2 of Kinexions came in, with sessions and discussions focused on how businesses today are actually leveraging technology and transforming their internal infrastructures for more efficient end-to-end supply chain planning. Based on learnings from the second and final day of Kinexions, here’s how to actually implement digitization and take your supply chain to the next level.
Leverage IoT and AI in Business Strategy
In his session, Zoltan Pekar explained that while Roland DG Corporation had been at the forefront of digital technology and computing, there was now a need to integrate thanks to the rise of IoT and AI – the “4th Industrial Revolution”. In order to do this, Roland DG needed both the right technology and processes in place. With RapidResponse, Pekar and his team were able to set the foundation of their integrated strategy, becoming more data-driven, agile, and responsive. They then created a new corporate culture and management system, embracing digitization, collaboration, and customer centricity. By integrating new technology and strategy, Roland DG has been able to break down siloes and connect its entire value chain.
