SIM 4th Quarter CIO Breakfast Event: "Unprecedented Automation"
The evidence is clear that we are near an inflection point in our ability to automate nearly everything, including those tasks that we could have never conceived as automat-able. How companies prepare for a future world punctuated by high levels of automation will separate the great from the average.
George Danner is the author of the forthcoming book The Executive Guide to Automation published by Springer. In his talk, he will provide some practical advice on company automation, from supply chains to forecasting demand to pricing to strategic decision-making, and which technologies in the mix that will be crucial to future success.
