What you’ll learn at our presentation

There will be a four-hour Pre-Conference Workshop on March 17th with some of our SAP experts at Reveal including Martin Rowan, Sean Elliffe, and David Carroll. The topic covering the workshop will be “Strategically considering S/4?  What can the business community do NOW to prepare for the impending technology change”.

“The current digital wave is an indication of how fast the market can change direction and leave many companies unprepared.  Most value chains are not geared for these radical changes, and most companies are finding that huge efforts are required within the current supply chain design to cope with the market changes and new market demands.   This unique workshop helps prepare the business community for the new technology by offering proven guidelines to reduce purchasing spend, optimize inventory, increase production capacity, improve supplier performance, reduce lead-times and increase services levels.  Not only does this prepare the business for the prospect of S/4 but the savings generated will help pay for the technology investment.  Learn how to identify practical and tangible value opportunities quickly, with tactical techniques and tools that enable you to ensure ROI within 6-12 months”.
