Each year, Gartner brings together the world’s most important supply chain leaders to collaborate and learn about new technologies that can enhance visibility and empower their organizations for the future. This year’s theme is “Move to Mastery: Innovate, Disrupt and Scale the Digital Supply Chain.”

LLamasoft is a premier sponsor of the event and will be located at booth number 601, showcasing how its software helps organizations worldwide to model, optimize and simulate their supply chains – leading to major improvements in cost, service, sustainability and risk mitigation.

“Companies’ long-standing supply chains are today facing an unprecedented pace of change. To compete you need to continuously assess potential improvements and risks – and swiftly implement strategies that drive performance,” said Toby Brzoznowski, Chief Strategy Officer of LLamasoft. “Our technology enables companies to create a digital model of their supply chain, where they can experiment with new ideas in a risk-free environment, identify opportunities for cost savings and continually improve their operations.”

In addition, on Tuesday, May 15th from 11:45 am to 12:30 pm PDT, Diana Orrego-Moore, the Global Director Supply Chain for ZX Ventures (an AB InBev Co.) and Carlos Valderrama, Senior Vice President Customer Success at LLamasoft, will give a presentation entitled “Supply Chain Design to Enable Growth and Innovation.” In this presentation, Diana and Carlos will discuss how ZX Ventures, the innovation division of Anheuser-Busch InBev Co., utilized LLamasoft’s supply chain design technology to analyze scenarios for production, distribution, postponement and last-mile delivery – leading to decisions that helped enable agility and innovation at the company. Diana and Carlos will also be at booth 601 after their session to answer any questions and host a meet and greet from 1:30-2:30 pm, Tuesday, May 15th.

The Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference is also the event where the firm releases its annual Supply Chain Top 25 report.
