Digital Transformation
After a year of profound market shifts driven by COVID-19, digitalization has rapidly accelerated and is the #1 priority for every organization in 2021. Get inspired hearing from industry leaders who have doubled down on their commerce-driven supply chain strategies to intelligently predict, manage, and fulfil customer demands.

Intelligent Automation
Staying ahead of supply chain complexities, potential disruptions and demand fluctuations has never been more critical. Automation that can help predict, prescribe, and help companies pivot is the foundation to achieving essential end-to-end supply chain visibility and seamless execution. Learn how to conquer these challenges and capitalize on opportunities.

Omni-Commerce
The commerce explosion coupled with drastically changing shopping habits is forcing change. Today’s shopping experience is driven and defined by the consumer at every step of the shopper journey, not just at the point of sale. Enter the customer-centric omni-commerce model. Explore how retailers are delivering a differentiated, reimagined shopper experience.

Power of the Platform
The future is inevitable: more data, more technology advancements, more partners. Companies are challenged with building a more extensible and adaptive supply chain that leverages people, processes, and assets across the ecosystem.
