Presenter: Derek Gittoes, Vice President, SCM Product Strategy, Oracle
Abstract: Disruptions require supply chain managers to be vigilant and innovative as they strive to improve the performance levels of their logistics operations. New products and business models, changes in trade regulations, and fluctuations in logistics costs are just a few examples of these disruptive forces. Oracle Cloud Logistics enables your organization to digitize and optimize your supply chain execution processes, which in turn delivers increased perfect order performance, lower supply chain costs, and improved supply chain resiliency. This session provides an overview of Oracle's transportation management and global trade management offerings and product roadmap insights. Come learn about advances to existing capabilities and expansion into new areas such as machine learning based arrival time predictions, IoT-enabled intelligent visibility, transportation capacity planning, preferential trade agreements, and much more.
