Global supply chains are poised for a major transformation in the wake of Industry 4.0. This represents current industrial transformation with automation, data exchanges, cloud, cyber-physical systems, robots, Big Data, AI, 3D Printing, IoT, and (semi-)autonomous industrial techniques. These transformations will help achieve smart industry goals. We are already on this transformational journey, and this Conclave provides an opportunity to reflect on “Digital Supply Chain Maturity” to help us understand the path traversed so far and the challenges and opportunities ahead. SP Jain School of Global Management has partnered with Accenture Strategy for the 2018 Supply Chain Management Conclave that includes a survey and a two-panel discussion. Join us this Friday 29 Jun and share your experiences with thought leaders from Accenture Strategy, Caterpillar, DHL, HP, Morgan Phillips to name a few.

About the Survey As a prelude to this conclave, a research survey was conducted. We reached out to practitioners, consultants, thinkers and academicians to seek their views on the current state of supply chain digital maturity and related challenges. These are challenges faced by the manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, logistics service providers, financial institutions, IT service providers and other stakeholders. This survey also gauged the level of preparedness of the industry to meet these challenges and the steps to be taken to enjoy the full benefits of digitisation in future.
This research survey will try to find answers to following questions-
– What are the organizational objectives behind pursuing a digital transformation strategy? – What are the operational key performance indicators organizations want to improve through digitization? – In what type of technologies, organizations are investing their money? – What are the values organizations are expecting to derive from digitization? – What are major barriers to successful digitization?The findings of this research survey will be presented at this conclave to introduce the attendees with the theme of the conclave, prior to the thought-provoking and interactive discussion on Digital Supply Chain Maturity.
Panel DiscussionsPanel 1 - The Journey to Digitization- Reflections and Experiences This panel will consist of practitioners from a variety of industries, which includes consulting, manufacturing, retail, logistics services, IT, financial services and others, who have undertaken a digital transformation of their organisation and processes. These elite panellists will share their own experiences of the journey they undertook in the recent past to digitise their processes and the organisation. They will also reflect on the challenges they encountered along the way and the benefits they are presently enjoying as the fruits of their efforts.
The digitisation journey cannot be undertaken by an organisation alone. Hence the organisations have also to bring other stakeholders on board for this journey. These stakeholders could be suppliers, logistics service providers, technology service providers, government agencies and the customers. The panellists will share their experience of managing the stakeholders and collaborating with them to achieve the organisational goals through digitisation.
