Digital Transformation in Manufacturing

Rethinking the Supply Chain in the era of Artificial Intelligence


Supply chains have always been complex, requiring the integration of multiple processes, applications and technologies, but a fast-evolving competitive landscape has added new layers of complexity and introduced new challenges for people, processes and legacy technology.

This is where digital transformation comes in. Organizations and value chains that can integrate real time data into their supply chain processes and applications will gain critical advantages.


March 6 or 7, 2018

 

Digital transformation is rapidly becoming the very basis for competition, but legacy supply chain solutions struggle to respond quickly enough to customer demands or market changes, because they were designed in the pre-digital era when the only focus was on efficiency.

Today, where agility, scalability, responsiveness and transparency are key, new digital supply chain solutions must leverage state-of-the-art capabilities such as Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, social collaboration, digital connectivity and predictive analytics to enable a truly demand-driven end-to-end operating model completely focused on the customer.

Join us in Brussels on either March 6th or March 7th to explore how digital supply chain solutions built on Microsoft can turn your supply chain into a competitive advantage through the use of data, analytics, AI and IoT connectivity across the entire organization.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Microsoft EBC in Brussels!
