Please join me at our upcoming Oracle Value Chain Summit in San Francisco on February 4-6. This summit features ~200 sessions across all of the supply chain management solution areas -- including Product Lifecycle Management, Manufacturing, Maintenance, Value Chain Planning, Value Chain Execution and Procurement. Customers, partners, and industry luminaries will discuss how to transform supply chains into value chains for a competitive edge. Hear from our exciting keynote speakers and customers who will share their experiences and discuss best practices for optimizing supply chains. Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to gain the latest Oracle product knowledge in detailed product sessions and participate in a hands-on solutions pavilion.
Sustainability will be discussed throughout this summit. And we also have a general session, ”The Sustainable Value Chain”, that will take place on Tuesday, February 5. Several supply chain experts will join me in discussing how sustainability is a growing factor in business positioning and performance. For product companies - the design, operation and optimization of supply chains is the central component of any meaningful sustainability program. But how to balance costs with benefits? How to measure the effectiveness of any program? How to identify the best business opportunities while avoiding "greenwashing"? We will discuss the implications of these trends and will review real-world examples of how sustainability can be embedded throughout the supply chain to reduce risks and costs while increasing revenues.I hope you can join us at the Oracle Value Chain Summit.
