About “Technology Trends and Developments for Manufacturing and Wholesale Distribution Executives”:
The use of technology within this sector is wide ranging and essential to effectively advancing and managing manufacturing and wholesale distribution companies. From its use within managing the supply chain to inventory management programs, manufacturing and wholesale distribution executives are paying close attention to not only the benefits, but also the risks, notably those around cybersecurity. And with the total cost of a data breach at $3.8 million, a 23% increase since 2013, they should be. Technology also exposes firms to significant legal and compliance risk including privacy, data usage, identify theft protection.
In this session we will discuss technology trends and developments in the manufacturing and distribution space, including:
- Mobile computing
- Cloud computing
- Big data
- Infrastructure upgrades and integrations
