Companies around the world have adopted the Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP) methodology and experienced substantial improvements in customer service, reduced lead times and lower inventories. Introduced to the market in 2011, the DDMRP methodology is experiencing rapid adoption around the globe as companies from a wide range of segments are finding it unlocks substantial improvements in their Supply Chain Performance.
Tata Consultancy Services(TCS), together with Demand Driven Technologies will host a webcast that will introduce you to the core concepts of DDMRP and highlight implementation case studies. We’ll also include a short demonstration of Replenishment+, the world’s leading DDMRP compliant software solution.
In this webinar you will learn:
1. Why outdated systems like MRP are inappropriate for today’s highly variable and uncertain landscape
2. The five key components of the Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP)
3. Recent DDMRP case studies from across globe and industry segments
Fleet management systems providers should gradually transform into a one-stop solution provider, extending their capabilities beyond telematics services by providing freight matching, video safety, tolling, fuel management, weigh-station bypass, truck stops, etc., by adding vendors into their partnership ecosystem. Digital freight brokers need to expand customer reach through OEM and TSP channels by leveraging their expansive customer base. Video safety vendors should develop their portfolio by offering driver fatigue detection and compliance management complemented by telematics services. Connected trucks will play an integral part of future logistics and freight operations.
Mobile-based freight matching will be the biggest disrupter transforming the North American transportation industry—a $700 billion industry. On-demand freight mobility apps will bring in high asset utilization among smaller fleets, help reduce logistics costs for shippers due to lower brokerage fees, ease capacity crunch, reduce empty return miles that are currently about 20 billion miles, and also help reduce emissions. Mobile-based freight will also disrupt the brokerage industry, currently valued at $50 billion, and is likely to become a $26.4 billion market by 2025. Other notable apps will be the complementary freight optimization and driver utility apps, with a potential to grow into a $9 billion market.
Every operations team is on a journey. But is the goal becoming a ‘Digital Enterprise’, or is it ‘Hybrid IT’ or ‘DevOps’? What if it is all three?
IT operations can no longer afford to solve only one problem at a time.
This webinar will examine the challenges Ops teams face in meeting interrelated business requirements. We will speak to the automation requirements that are needed to satisfy these challenges. Then we’ll dive into the benefits of using hybrid cloud management together with application delivery automation in moving Ops closer to all these end goals. Ops teams need more powerful tool sets to deliver complex cloud services faster and to be successful in DevOps oriented organizations.
J9 will share their experiences in working on cloud management projects and HPE will provide an overview of the HPE Hybrid Cloud Management solution suite for unifying hybrid IT management and accelerating application delivery.

In a recent Frost & Sullivan event organized in collaboration with IBM, along with digital heads of major OEMs and suppliers on the eve of the Paris Motor show, it was concluded that by 2020, Internet-connected vehicles will be the number one application, transmitting over 350 KB of data per minute. The event determined that digitization in the automotive industry will be primarily defined by five key pillars and will have a spiral effect on other industries:
1. Connected Supply Chain
2. Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0
3. Connected and Autonomous Car
4. Digital Retailing and Vehicle Relationship Management
5. Mobility as a Service (MaaS)
The trucking industry today is focused on finding solutions to driver shortages, safety regulation compliance pressures, fuel efficiency enhancement demands, and higher driver productivity. That solution will be autonomous trucks. All truck OEMs are prioritizing some level of automated driving into their strategic plans to develop a sustainable transport solution for years to come as trucking provides the perfect platform for reaching the full potential of autonomous vehicles. The building blocks toward an autonomous truck include four main technological pillars: driveline, connectivity/communication, sensors, and algorithms/software. However, the process is expected to be slow as regulations, technology, liability, consumer adoption and societal concerns still need to be addressed.

The Latin America Automotive Market in 2015 declined by about 3% and the trend is expected to continue toward 2016. However, in terms of long-term sustainability, advancements in vehicle segment and in-vehicle features are becoming key differentiators. Moreover, disruption in the market in terms of new mobility business models is evident. This briefing will discuss the various aspects of change and evolution that the LATAM automotive landscape is experiencing and highlight the various opportunities for growth.
Autonomous cars are heavily reliant on existing infrastructure such as road signs, markings, etc., to navigate. However, the required infrastructure to support autonomous driving is subpar at most in many regions. To ensure that autonomous cars can continue driving autonomously, they require high-definition maps that can “fill in the blanks” (e.g., missing lane markings or signs can be checked on the map). This briefing will discuss where HD maps fit into the autonomous driving ecosystem, HD maps adoption, and threats to automotive navigation players by geospatial companies.

The business of selling cars, parts and services is undergoing tremendous disruption at every level. From omni-channel retailing to digital dealers to Uberization of service, the downstream automotive ecosystem is expected to be completely transformed in the next 10-15 years. Frost & Sullivan predicts that nearly $50 billion automotive parts will be sold online globally by 2020. Similarly, nearly 70% of car sales leads will be fully digital by 2020. However, these disruptive forces also present challenges. For instance, the rise of Amazon is set to completely transform car sales and aftermarket models. In this scenario, OEMs will have to recalibrate their strategies while protecting their investments in current sales footprints.
