"How Did We Get Here?"
Featured Guest, Lyle Ekdahl
Although the capabilities of technology have changed a lot over the last few decades, corporate mindsets towards it have not. For example, thinking that putting a new system in place will cover all business requirements once and for all is an outdated way of thinking. Technology and digitalization should be seen as a journey, one that will go on as long as a company continues to operate.
In this live cast appearance, Lyle provides a retrospective of the ERP solutions and technologies landscape with hosts Scott Luton and Greg White and a live Supply Chain Now audience.
"Unless you have built systems with agility in mind, it's going to be very difficult for you to sustain the status quo...it is the road to irrelevancy."

SESSION 2 — Thursday, April 27th @ NOON ET
Featured Guest, Greg Davis
Despite the sizable investments companies have made in enterprise technology, many people still feel stuck with their systems. Rather than looking for change to happen overnight, these teams can start the journey towards ROI by taking a single step – perhaps with the support of a trusted advisor.
In session 2 of the live cast, Greg Davis, a Principal at Grant Thornton, has 26 years of systems and supply chain consulting experience, joins hosts Scott Luton and Greg White to discuss the importance of digital transformation in maintaining a competitive edge and driving continuous innovation.
"I always teach that ERP is enterprise resource planning. Nowhere in there does it say system, right? Enterprise resource planning is a way of doing business; It's an integrated way of doing business."
Greg Davis, Principal at Grant Thornton
