Traditional ERP systems were designed to support in-house, vertically integrated processes and supply chains that rarely changed. The analytics that supported those systems were equally stubborn. Modern logistics are far more fluid, and partners, suppliers, and customers demand personalized service. Moving ERP to the cloud can bring flexibility to your back office. Cloud-based analytics can add real-time decision support that allows you convert flexibility into efficiency, shortening production cycles, adapting to disruptions, and responding to customer demand before the customer even asks.
This Webinar will examine the potential impact of big data and cloud-based ERP on supply chains and decision support. Join GigaOM Research and Plex for “Analytics for ERP: The Benefits of Big Data in the Cloud,” a free analyst webinar on Thursday, October 10, 2013, at 1 p.m. ET.
