Integrating Planning, Development, Supply Chain, Compliance, and Quality into One Central Platform


How can you synchronize information from critical enterprise systems, such as Planning, Development, Supply Chain, Compliance and Quality into a single centralized platform? This session shows how to orchestrate all the information, processes, systems, departments and geographies in your value chain into a central repository. Learn how:

  • • SCM and PLM systems are becoming “platforms” that drive new types of innovation
  • • Previously siloed systems can share information seamlessly within a common platform and application framework
  • • This level of integration can improve efficiencies, reduce errors, drive down costs and shorten the concept-to-consumer lifecycle.
