Supply Chain 

The supply chain sector is increasingly adapting and deploying technology to better understand the unknown. Big data provides a wealth of information and historical precedent to benchmark and optimize current and future events. Modeling and design software similarly affords users the latitude to engineer and plan for potentialities before they happen.

But sometimes high-tech simulation doesn’t go far enough. Recently, UK automobile technology supplier Delphi Automotive completed the first coast-to-coast U.S. test run of a driverless vehicle between San Francisco and New York. The 3,400-mile journey passed through 15 cities and took nine days to complete.

GT Nexus Announces Details for Annual Bridges Conference

GT Nexus announced that its annual user conference, Bridges, will be held in Half Moon Bay, California, on June 3-5, 2012. This annual gathering of large enterprises and supply chain partners is the largest event of its kind, attended by companies with collective revenues in excess of $1 trillion.

“What’s unique about Bridges is that you have more than just a room full of leaders and innovators from the world’s biggest companies,” said Aaron Sasson, CEO of GT Nexus. “These companies also share a common cloud platform to run their respective global supply chains, all benefitting from one another’s presence in the network. Therefore, they are quite vested, which makes the conference valuable, compelling and somewhat unique. This is a powerful community that is driving technology innovation into one of the biggest, most complex industries on the planet.”
