May 1, 2014


Dedham, Massachusetts., May 1, 2014 – SAPinsider announces the speaker for the keynote address at Logistics & SCM, PLM, Manufacturing, and Procurement 2014.

Hans Thalbauer, Senior Vice President Supply Chain Management, Industry Business Solutions, SAP, will present the keynote address, “From supply chains to demand networks,” at this year’s Logistics & SCM, PLM, Manufacturing, and Procurement 2014 conference taking place in May 14-16 in Nice, France. This presentation provides supply chain executives with a roadmap to sense and respond to demand based on illuminating data that can transform insight into action.

The global markets have reached an inflection point that will separate businesses for decades to come. These dramatic market shifts are happening on two dimensions: geographically through the emerging middle classes in emerging markets and demographically through the “always connected” millennial generation. Supply chain leaders realize now is the time to imagine an entirely new supply chain that leverages the latest technology platforms to enable real-time decision making and visibility to drive predictive demand planning and responsive orchestration of the network. In essence, the supply chains of the future will not be chains at all, but will transform into demand networks.

Logistics & SCM, PLM, Manufacturing, and Procurement 2014, an annual collaboration of SAP and SAPinsider, is the most important event of the year for organizations using SAP® solutions to drive operational excellence across the extended supply chain.
