5:40 PM Speed panel: The next wave: what will be the next big tool for digital transformation?

Digital thought leaders share their views on the hottest topics in digital space, including:
  • What role will AI have in process improvement in the next 5 – 10 years and which tools are looking the most promising? 
  • Blockchain: what are the potential benefits for business operations, who is experimenting with it and how can it be applied to other industries? 
  • Which other tools and technologies will be instrumental in creating the business of the future...  and will they put us out of a job? 


2:35 PM Case study: Balancing Lean with agility to optimise global supply chains

Inmarsat is undertaking a major transformation to create a more customer-centric supply chain across Europe, North America and the APAC region. You will hear perspectives from the OPEX and business unit leaders on how they have managed deliver on-time to a customer base that can only be served when in port, subject to last minute changes such as Customs and the weather. 
  • The approach to building more agility into the supply chain: pushing out the process to plan as late as possible given a 6 – 9 month order lead time
  • Establishing regional hubs and on-boarding partners to enable the transformation
  • The tangible business impact of the programme in terms of on-time delivery rates and operational costs 
  • Tangible lessons that could be applied to other supply chain optimisation programmes
