Elemica IGNITE 2015 Conferences to Energize Supply Chain Performance

Ignite Exponential Growth and Transform Business Performance With a Supply Chain Operating Network

WAYNE, PA and FRANKFURT, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2015) - Elemica, the leading Supply Chain Operating Network provider for the process industries, announces dates and locations for their North American and European Supply Chain Conferences titled IGNITE 2015. These high energy events will gather executives, industry analysts, and provocative thought leaders from the global supply chain community to share ideas and strategic approaches that will stimulate supply chains into the next level of growth and profitability. Evolving best practices, client case studies, and actionable insights streamlining the flow of innovation, talent, and resources throughout a robust supply chain ecosystem will be presented.

"The strength of interactions across trading partners ignites prosperity and economic growth for all," said Ed Rusch, VP Corporate Marketing at Elemica. "A supply chain ecosystem flourishes as the capability to do more with more makes all the participants better off. It allows companies to gain visibility and predictive insights into critical supply chain events, share knowledge that will deepen relationships, leverage their collective activities to enrich opportunities ahead, and more." 

At IGNITE 2015, one key topic will be how a company can rapidly grow their network so that it reaches a critical mass, exploding value and transforming business. Facilitating this goal is Elemica's next-generation QuickLink Network platform and its true "Come As You Are" approach to business-to-business collaboration. This means that individual companies don't have to change their internal processes or make costly technology investments in order to reap the advantages of a supply chain operating network. When thousands of individual trading partners and their respective enterprises seamlessly and efficiently conduct commerce at a significant scale, real cost advantages are achieved alongside transformative capabilities for companies to delight their individual customers.

Elemica's annual Supply Chain Conferences constantly deliver real value to attendees, with reviews from previous events scoring high marks. "The Elemica team hosted a nice show with the right combination of business, technology, networking and entertainment," said Paul Lord, Research Director at Gartner. "While Elemica has made a lot of progress in the solutions they are offering and upgraded service delivery capabilities, not enough has changed regarding how the industry (both practitioners and many thought leaders) still talk about the opportunities for digitized business processes." Elemica's event included a "powerful lineup of sessions, breakouts, and speakers," added Art van Bodegraven, Managing Principal of van Bodegraven Associates. "The mix of respected and articulate practitioners, researchers and commentators, and Elemica specialists was refreshing and invigorating."

In addition to the main presentation sessions, attendees will also find significant value in both formal and informal networking opportunities, small group breakout sessions across supply chain disciplines, and 1-on-1 "FastPass to the Pros" opportunities with a supply chain expert.
