DALLAS, TX. — December 28, 2012 — Greg Brady, One Network’s CEO, will speak at the SMC3 2013 Jump Start Conference, being held January 21-23, in Atlanta, Ga. He will join a thought provoking panel discussion entitled “Demand Driven Supply Chain Technology” with Andy Dyer, VP of Government Services at Menlo Logistics and Amit Gupta PhD., Supply Chain Leader at KPMG.
During this session, Mr. Brady will discuss how supply chains are evolving into Demand Driven Networks. Demand Driven Networks are communities of trading partners built around customer demand. They provide, among many things, real time visibility into demand signals, inventory positions, and shipments globally. Having this information enables trading partners in a network to create integrated business plans and provide optimized execution. Integrated business planning treats all value partners and their processes as if they were vertically integrated. Mr. Brady will explain how 3PLs/4PLs can provide more value to their customers by adopting technologies that offer Demand Driven Operations.
SMC³ has released the final agenda for the Jump Start 2013 conference (January 21-23, 2013 in Atlanta, Ga.). “Jump Start includes 20+ hours of networking, 30+ supply chain presenters and thought-provoking sessions with the nation’s top thought leaders,” said SMC³ Executive Vice President Danny Slaton. “Our goal is to provide attendees with accessible, in-depth knowledge and multiple networking and alliance-building opportunities, to prepare for tomorrow’s business-impacting legislative, economic and technological changes.”
