Best Business Practice Shown at 2015 Top Supply Chain Event

Join us in Darmstadt on October 1-2 for the International SAP Conference on Supply Chain. This TA Cook event is packed with opportunities for you to meet with industry leaders, SAP experts, and partners in a collaborative learning environment. Discover how innovation from SAP can drive superior performance across your supply chain.

Today’s challenges for supply chain professionals are well understood: Consumers increasingly expect products to be individualized to their unique specifications and to be delivered on demand. The extended supply chain – from design and manufacturing to logistics and operations – is similarly affected. With a wealth of variants to products and their delivery being introduced, the entire extended supply chain must be reworked to accommodate the demands of customer centricity, personalized solutions, and speed of response.

We have invited business leaders who have started their supply chain transformation journey, and will present business-focused case studies from their companies: Learn firsthand how Mondelez and Whirlpool benefit from cloud-based Integrated Business
Planning solutions, which Gartner has recently positioned in the leader’s quadrant.

In addition, understand how Unilever, RWE, Nussbaum, Austria Federal Railways (OBB), leverage Supply Chain Execution solutions like market leading SAP Transportation Management. Not to forget Philips, Caterpillar, Boehringer, and many more who will discuss how they achieve success in supply chain planning and execution.

On the first day, you can hear inspiring keynotes and solution updates across the three events, giving you the "big picture" of SAP's strategy. Pierfrancesco Manenti from SCM World will talk about the “Internet of Things for Business in 2020” – what are the
real implications of IOT for you as Supply Chain practitioners? And what is the expected business outcome?

The conference will take place in the Darmstadtium, a modern conference center located in Darmstadt south of Frankfurt. The building will host the SAP and partner exhibition, where you can experience cloud-based innovations, SAP HANA platform innovations, and more firsthand from SAP and partners.

I am also pleased that this year’s event is co-located with the International SAP Conferences on Manufacturing and PLM, as part of the SAP Conference Series on Extended Supply Chain. Registering for one event will give you access to all three. There will be enough space and time for networking and cross-industry learning: Share challenges and successes with senior executives from the supply chain, product lifecycle management, and manufacturing communities.

Finally, this event offers a compelling opportunity for you to connect with like-minded peers from Europe and beyond. Don’t miss this opportunity to help your organization achieve superior supply chain performance.

I look forward to seeing you there. Click banner below for registration!
