The potential of emerging tech in SCM

Forward-looking procurement organizations are increasingly adopting emerging technology like artificial intelligence, robotic process automation, Internet of Things, and blockchain, which help execute and facilitate day-to-day activities. 

While the potential advantages seem vast, many of these solutions are still being tested, are growing and evolving, and don't have the track record to prove long-term effectiveness in supply management.

Join us as Dr. Adegoke Oke, Harold E. Fearon Fellow and Associate Professor at Arizona State University provides an overview of his findings from an upcoming CAPS Research report, Compelling Applications of Emerging Technology in Supply Management. Dive deep with supply management leaders from Intel, IBM, and Chevron as they share their experiences with emerging tech in a panel discussion and Q&A session.
