The SIG covers the entire supply chain … S&OP, forecasting, inventory optimisation, planning & scheduling, sales order processing, procurement, receipt of goods from suppliers, manufacturing, sub-contracting, warehousing and storage, and despatches to customers … and anything SAP related to these business processes.
Probably the most diverse of SIGs, covering the widest range of subjects within SAP. Some people are simply interested in a helicopter view of their Supply Chain processes via a dashboard, while others are really interested in the minute detail of say warehouse locations. Our events should appeal to at least one employee in your organisation; everyone orders/buys/sells right?
Typically the SIG includes a couple of customer stories, these are not from pushy salesmen, they are from people who have gone through a project, and are able to share their experiences, and real life pitfalls and lessons learned. Customer stories also receive discount to the Conference. If you have been through a project, that is the subject of one of our events, get in touch and present, you won’t regret it.
A 3rd party then presents a case study to showcase their products, whilst we understand the 3rd party (usually the sponsor of the event) would like some sales leads from the event, we don’t allow pure sales pitches of how wonderful their product is without the case study to back it up.
SAP attend to give a very insightful presentation on what is around the corner, and the roadmap to achieve this.
We are a networking organisation. We promote discussion. We encourage interaction. These are YOUR events. Don’t be shy in asking a question, usually somebody else in the room has either experienced your problem, or know they are about to. You know more than you know. Share your knowledge.
If you have experience of the event topic, or a vested interest in the event topic, then attend the event. You will meet a room full of like-minded individuals. Reading about topics, watching YouTube about topics, is no substitute for sharing and listening to real life people. Plus, you’ll probably end up with some free consultancy…
