Event Alert: Steelwedge to Host Webinar "Selecting the Right Planning Technology: Time to Revisit Priorities" Featuring Gartner's Tim Payne

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2013) - Steelwedge, the leader in cloud-based sales and operations planning (S&OP) solutions, will host a webinar on Friday, June 21, 2013 at 9:00 am PDT entitled "Selecting the Right Planning Technology: Time to Revisit Priorities," featuring Tim Payne, Research Vice President at Gartner.

Event Details:

This interactive webinar with Gartner's Agenda Manager for the Supply Chain Core Research team, Tim Payne, will take a closer look at the priorities and technology selection criteria necessary to optimize sales and operations planning (S&OP) agility and effectiveness.

The challenge: the needle hasn't really moved in years on the goal of better managing forecast accuracy and demand variability -- even though nearly $2.8 billion was spent on technologies to address this last year alone. The Gordian knot lies in how companies address both the challenge and the potential technologies leveraged for the solution. This session will take a deeper dive into three areas worth a second look on any manufacturer's planning technologies selection criteria:

  • Technical Architecture
  • Vendor Innovation and Thought Leadership
  • Application Deployment Model

Register and join Steelwedge for the live webinar session Friday, June 21, 2013, at 9 am PT/5 pm GMT that continues a popular discussion Tim started in his address at the May 2013 Gartner Supply Chain Summit.
