We will be speaking with Clearwater Paper on Tues 9/26/17 in Atlanta at the CSCMP Annual Conference at 2:00 PM ET.

We will be talking about building and running a supply chain analytics center of excellence (COE).  As the analytics movement has gained momentum through advances in machine learning, and more recently artificial intelligence, it is important to think about bringing this technology to the supply chain.

In this talk, we will highlight what supply chain managers need to know about analytics.  We will help you cut through the buzzwords and understand what machine learning and artificial intelligence mean.  In addition, there are many other skills that are important to a supply chain analytics COE– like optimization, data engineering, and data visualization.  We’ll also highlight lessons learned and pitfalls to avoid.

If you will be in Atlanta, be sure to stop by the session.
