Zyme Announces Speakers for Global Channel Data Management Summit

CDM Summit in San Jose Features Fortune 500 Companies, Partners and Industry Thought Leaders

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwired - May 24, 2017) - Zyme, the market leader in the rapidly growing discipline of channel data management (CDM), today announced the full speaker lineup for its upcoming Global Channel Data Management Summit, taking place June 7 in San Jose, California. The summit will provide invaluable insights on channel strategy and solutions from Zyme customers, partners and industry thought leaders, with expert speakers from companies such as Accenture, Citrix, Dell, Motorola Solutions, Perks, SiriusDecisions and more.

According to conservative estimates, poor channel visibility leads to losses in the form of misallocated incentive payments and inventory markdowns that cost technology and industrial companies $50 billion a year. Data-driven channel processes can turn those costs back into profits, reducing incentive spending by 10 to 15 percent. Summit attendees will learn how CDM can slash channel costs by eliminating channel inefficiencies, better managing the supply chain to streamline logistics and avoid excess inventory or stock-out and increase channel revenues by leveraging clean, accurate and timely data that helps generate demand with customers and identify the optimal route-to-market.

With thought leadership keynotes, breakout sessions and panel discussions, attendees will learn how leading manufacturers use Zyme's CDM cloud platform to revolutionize channel business and gain the maximum ROI from channel investments. Speakers include industry leaders and change agents who are transforming channel data management, including:

  • Jason Angelos, Senior Managing Director, Accenture
  • Graham Melville, Senior Director, Product Marketing, Citrix
  • Ashlie Wallace, Vice President, Global Inventory Management, Dell
  • Jason Mitchell, Director of Global Business Operations, Motorola Solutions
  • Claudio Ayub, Chief Strategy Officer, Perks Channel
  • Chris Cleary, Service Director, Channel Sales Strategies, SiriusDecisions
  • Chandran Sankaran, CEO and Founder, Zyme
  • Ashish Shete, Vice President, Products and Engineering, Zyme
