Rob Gonzalez, CMO & Co-Founder, Salsify, Inc.
Description: Consumers now build connections with your brand through omnichannel shopping experiences, and these interactions must be engaging and consistent at every stage of the buying journey. Major retailers like Kroger, Walmart, Amazon, The Home Depot, Carrefour, Tesco, Metro, Woolworth’s Australia, and others have moved towards combining supply chain data and product experience data into integrated feeds. This topic will talk through the changing landscape of marketing facing brand manufacturers, and how that landscape has forced product data management companies to evolve.

3:00 The Art and Science of Visualizing Your Data
Jim Lewis, Founder & CEO, Enhanced Retail Solutions
Data exists for many aspects and levels of your business. For example, your customers, service providers and your internal systems provide data. The problem is they each only show a specific slice of your business. To get the most out of the data, you need to aggregate it, choose a visualization platform, and connect the dots. This presentation will follow a real-world case where a manufacturer wanted to merge their brick & mortar, online and drop ship data to gain greater visibility throughout the business. Using Microsoft’s PowerBI, we will show how to track performance, forecast demand, decrease stock-outs and find opportunities that would otherwise go unnoticed.
3:45 The Big Question, “EDI – To Outsource or Not?
Mike Winsor, Senior Product Manager, Rocket Software
“It depends” is a dreaded answer no one wants to hear to their question. Sometimes, though, without understanding why it depends, decision makers can cause significant harm to the organization. This is no less true when you are thinking about whether to outsource your EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). There are several factors that can guide your decision on outsourcing. In this session, Mike Winsor, Senior Product Manager at Rocket Software, will share his knowledge on what to look for and what pitfalls to avoid helping guide you on this decision path. Including, best practices around cost drivers (hint: Most companies not in tune with complexities of the EDI process would just look at cost as the main driver.) Whether you are new to EDI or an EDI Veteran, we will cover all the points to consider when making the EDI outsourcing decision so you and your company will have enough information to make the right choices to set yourselves up for success!
