This IDC Manufacturing Insights Perspective looks at the Oracle Modern Supply Chain Experience 2016. For the fourth year, though the first as Modern Supply Chain Experience, January brought the Oracle supply chain ecosystem to San Jose, California, with a strong complement of speakers, presentations and, most importantly, end-user manufacturers. Considerably larger in its fourth incarnation, the summit was a really good place to interact with thought leaders and to take the pulse of manufacturing for 2016. For us in IDC Manufacturing Insights, the Modern Supply Chain Experience is a superb event. As one attendee said, "At OpenWorld, only a small percentage of the conversations and sessions are really valuable because the coverage is so broad — here, ALL the conversations and sessions are really valuable."
