For decades companies have struggled to deploy agile business networks across their trade partner communities. Globalization makes achievement of this vision critical. Cloud changes everything.  Brian White with Del Monte Foods and Greg Johnsen with GT Nexus will cover a range of topics, including Cloud vs. ERP, Planning for Value, 'Big Data’ Supply Chain Analytics, Security and more.

A Cloud Supply Chain is the informational replica of the "real" supply chain on the ground. By applying a Facebook, or Linked In, kind of technology approach to supply chains, the information model takes on exceptional power. Forget the shortcomings of yesterday’s technology and learn how new collaborative platforms based around the Internet and the economics of Cloud are enabling companies to become agile and hyper-efficient networked organizations.

Our speakers will discuss how to utilize Cloud to streamline supply chain operations and smooth transactions between global partners, and how to evade risks.  Mr. White will highlight new regulations for Importers and how Del Monte works with suppliers to gain compliance, as well as Cloud enablement from a supply chain optimization perspective. Mr. Johnsen will give insight to the power of a Cloud community and the biggest value areas.

The cloud supply chain is the technology breakthrough that the industry has been waiting for.  Register today.
