June’s live Cloud Wars Expo event featured dozens of industry leaders allowing the Acceleration Economy team access to the inner workings of the greatest growth market the world has ever known.
If you missed the Expo or just want to catch up on sessions you were not able to attend, then you’re in luck. We recorded more than 40 hours of education sessions from the event, which are available for free to Acceleration Economy subscribers. We’re also previewing the content in this series of Moments, which feature highlights from each session.
In this Cloud Wars Expo Moment, excerpted from the Supply Chain education sessions, SAP Vice President of Global Solution Marketing Robert Merlo discusses how a digital transformation can promote resiliency within a company. Merlo gives the audience an example of how a company has successfully implemented SAP’s integrated business planning.
00:50 — Merlo explains what innovators are doing to “not only thrive but stay alive.” Disruptions are inevitable, but companies can decide to either respond reactively or with resiliency.
01:30 — To be resilient is to be able to “take a blow” and still be able to come back to where you stood before or better. To be resilient, companies should plan ahead and digitize, enabling them to thrive under uncertain circumstances. Digitized businesses do not have to react since they are always planning ahead.
01:59 — Timken, a company that builds transmission parts and bearings, has adopted SAP’s integrated business planning and started its digital transformation. Since Timken has made those changes, the organization is better prepared to handle challenges in the ever-changing supply and demand.
