One key benefit of attending an event such as this is to be able to learn from your peers about the challenges they face across their extended enterprise and the OpenText™ Business Network solutions they have deployed to resolve these challenges. We have a number of great customers lined up to present in the Business Network track at Enterprise World this year, for more information on who is speaking, please see the session information below.
Our keynote speaker for the Business Network track will be Randall Urban, Vice President of the Digital Office at Adient, a leading tier 1 supplier to many leading vehicle manufacturers. Randall’s session, When Will Your Industry Get Disrupted? Adient’s Digital Journey will share insights gained along its journey from a static, linear supply chain to a dynamic and agile ecosystem—one that digitizes and integrates capacity, demand, sourcing and logistics—and what’s next, such as using advanced analytics to further optimize key processes.
Attend this session to learn how Adient is leading digital transformation, rather than being disrupted by it—and what it could mean for your industry.
In addition to this keynote session from Adient, we also have three sessions with contributions from other B2B Managed Services customers of OpenText.
BNN 101 – How Digital Disruption is Driving New Supply Chain Transformation Initiatives – Tuesday 11th July between 2:00pm and 2:50pm – OpenText recently sponsored a study from the analyst firm IDC to understand whether new digital technologies were leading to new supply chain transformation initiatives across a company. More information about the key findings from this study can be found in this blog. B2B Managed Services can not only provide a digital backbone which seamlessly integrates external trading partners to internal enterprise systems, it can also provide additional resources to manage your B2B environment leaving you to focus on managing your business and rolling out new digital initiatives across the extended enterprise.
This session will be co-presented with Siva Raja, Logistics & EDI Manager, Matson Logistics who will discuss their journey towards moving to a cloud-first strategy and deploying B2B Managed Services to support their business operations.
BNN 106 – Accelerate Competitive Advantage with B2B Managed Services – Wednesday 12th July between 4:10pm and 5:00pm – Your business is faced with multiple demands and challenges. Whether internal initiatives, such as ERP consolidation; go-to-market strategies, such as M&A activity or channel expansion; or external forces and mandates, such as electronic invoice compliance, your resources are stretched thin. Attend this session to learn how OpenText™ B2B Managed Services can help your organization turn these challenges into opportunity and competitive advantage and shield your business from the complexities of B2B integration allowing you to focus on your core business activities.
This session will be co-presented with Greg Munster, Senior Director Sales Productivity, Red Hat who will discuss how B2B Managed Services helped the company to simplify supplier integration complexity, expand their global reach and digitally enable their end to end supply chain processes.
BNN-107 Simplify & Optimize Your SAP Implementation with B2B Managed Services, Thursday 13th July between 9:00am and 9:50am – If your business runs SAP, then you have made a significant investment in an ERP system that simplifies how you manage your business operations. But how do you ensure that your extended enterprise and external trading partners can leverage this investment as well? This session will explain the benefits of integrating your SAP and B2B platforms together and how SAP’s endorsement of B2B Managed Services simplifies this process. This session will also explore how SAP is leveraging other Business Network capabilities such as global e-invoice compliance, notifications, and cloud fax to enhance SAP’s solution offerings.
This session will be co-presented with Calvin Leong, Director Business Technology & eCommerce, DistributionNow, who will discuss the challenges they faced with regards to their SAP integration project, why they decided to take a B2B Managed Services approach and the benefits they obtained.
More information about other Business Network sessions can be found in blogs by Greg Horton, Karen Bieniek, and in one of my earlier blogs.
