Information is the lifeblood of any business and its supply chain. Yet companies today are challenged to manage the ever-increasing amount of “critical
information” flowing in and out of their organizations, including standards, regulations, product data and technical specifications, and more. Different functions within an organization have divergent perspectives on which information is truly “critical” to the business, and companies across a supply chain also place varying values on disparate types of information.
This lack of a holistic view into the value of information creates roadblocks to the effective management of the data and information vital to a company’s
effective operations. These roadblocks, in turn, create a great risk to sales, operations, quality and more.
Join Supply & Demand Chain Executive and IHS in this live webcast that will unveil the results of a recent survey exploring these varying viewpoints and
challenges, providing a benchmark for companies looking to improve the way they manage their information supply chain. Each speaker will discuss important findings from the survey and share practitioner insights that help:
- Pinpoint the types of information viewed as most critical within organizations
- Highlight the risks posed by poor management of critical business information
- Benchmark companies’ ability to manage different types of information
- Identify the tools that companies use to obtain and manage information
