Digital innovations that are accelerating visibility, efficiency and predictability within the supply chain, logistics and procurement industry will be on show at the Digital Supply Chain Show on May 25 in Dubai.
Organised by Ventures Connect and supported by CIPS Mena, the event will focus on how companies in the region can set up and implement supply chain and procurement processes for improved resilience, agility and sustainability.
Reports suggest that 60% of the global average share of customer interactions are digital and as markets around the world are becoming increasingly digitised, it is imperative that businesses meet consumers’ demands as well. Due to the increasing adoption of advanced digital technologies, many companies are now looking to apply digital supply chain solutions to their businesses, thus ensuring the seamless continuity of operations.
As organisations look for tangible approaches and strategies to enable them to continue bouncing back from Covid-19, incorporating digitalisation technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Internet of Things, Robotics, etc. will pave the way for the future.
The Digital Supply Chain Show offers real-world examples and practical insights from supply chain giants like Amazon, DP World, Noon, Unilever, Lulu Group International, Chalhoub Group, Adnoc Group, Emirates Airline, Saudi Telecoms Company, and Mondelēz International.
These practical examples demonstrate the efficiency gains possible when companies have a well-planned digital transformation and can access new knowledge by leveraging big data and technologies such as cloud, ERP systems, artificial intelligence, control tower and digital twins.
De-risking supply chains
Organisations have learnt in recent years the importance of de-risking their supply chains, especially if they are heavily reliant on one supplier or country. Digitalisation and data intelligence is giving companies new, faster insights that will support their decision-making.
“The industry is rapidly changing and the Digital Supply Chain Show will explore the positive benefits that disruption can bring to organisations. The event is more than an opportunity for attendees to network with industry leaders. The case studies, insights and advice will arm our audience with new knowledge and ideas they can use in their workplace,” said Robert Jones, Chairman, Digital Supply Chain Show.
‘’As the consumer landscape evolves, digital supply chains enable companies to stay competitive and continue to meet customers’ ever-changing demands. We are excited to participate in the Digital Supply Chain Show to discuss how we use technology across our global logistics network and in Mena to stay ahead of growing customer demand and deliver what our customers need — when, where, and how they want it. At Amazon, we prioritise developing scalable technical solutions that enable us to meet the existing and future needs of customers, extending across every area of our business,” says Ritesh Somani, Director, Supply Chain and Transportation, Mena, Amazon.
Increasingly, companies must have a high-quality sustainability strategy in place that allows them to meet their carbon reduction targets. The Digital Supply Chain Show will explore how to build resilient and responsible procurement and supply chain operations, working with their supply chains to reduce indirect emissions.
The Digital Supply Chain Show will take place in the 5-star Address Marina, Dubai. -- TradeArabia News Service
