Enterprise Cloud and software applications provider Oracle will be conducting its annual Modern Supply Chain Management Experience conference starting Monday in San Jose California.  Supply Chain Matters, under the presence of this Editor, will again be attending, speaking, and providing timely dispatches and “tweets” from this year’s event.

We have already received word that conference registrations will match or exceed last year’s nearly 2500 attendees.

This author will be participating in a main stage keynote panel, along with five other panelists, addressing the topic: Transforming Your Business Operating Model Through End-to-End Supply Chain. Our panel is being asked to address how end-to-end supply chain transformations are becoming more of a strategic priority and why. The panel will address people, process, and technology elements of such transformation from each of our frames of reference. As the independent supply chain management industry analyst, I will be addressing such trends from both a research and multi-industry supply chain perspective. This keynote panel is scheduled for Wednesday, January 31 at 9:15am.

I am also part of a panel, Building Supply Chain Talent, scheduled for Wednesday, January 31 at 4:15pm. This is a rather special panel in that is part of Future Supply Chain Leaders speaker tract that includes invitees from local and national universities with supply chain management career aspirations.  Invitations are also extended to select students of Design Tech High School, a unique public charter high school authorized by the San Matteo Union High School District that is physically located on the Oracle corporate campus. Oracle extends complimentary registration and paid travel to such students, an opportunity to attend a major technology conference with a custom track designed for such students.

Readers who are unable to attend can keep their Browser Favorites pointed to Supply Chain Matters for conference highlights starting on January 29.

Stay tuned.
