HighJump Elevate 2018 — Evolving Supply Chains by "Thinking Big"
This IDC Perspective discusses the recent HighJump Elevate user conference. Each year in mid-March, HighJump Software brings together a well-rounded group of supply chain professionals to discuss the current state of supply chain operations and the future state of the supply chain, share ideas and best practices, and communicate product updates and company news to the HighJump community. This year, over 700 people attended the event and HighJump hosted over 100 educational sessions aligned across the HighJump suite of product offerings.
John Santagate, research director for Service Robotics at IDC says, "HighJump Elevate is an event that brings together an exceptional group of supply chain professionals where ideas and best practices are freely shared. This is one of the top supply chain events. While it is focused on the HighJump user community, the customers engage in provocative discussions where there is no doubt that new ideas are formed and companies take these ideas back and use the insight gained to enact meaningful change within their own supply chains."
