About Digiconnect: Mitigating Supply Chain Risk and Building a Resilient Enterprise

Risk has various drivers and is a constant threat to global and regional Supply chains, and this unfortunately has been complicated by the current global pandemic creating more difficulty for many organisations in the region to effectively manage their supplier processes.

Often tracking risk and supplier management activities are highly manual processes for organisations, which leads to limited visibility and leaves your supply chain vulnerable to disruption. To overcome and navigate this challenge successfully, procurement, supply chain and risk management professionals and organisation need to take a more proactive approach towards reducing the impact of risks by implementing a holistic, digital risk and supplier management strategy.

The Mitigating Supply Chain and Building a Resilient Enterprise virtual boardroom will bring together senior officials and decision makers driving procurement and supply chain risk management strategies for their organisations and innovative technology experts to discuss and learn how digitizing supplier processes enables organisations to centralize information, quickly identify potential threats, and mitigate risk all while driving efficient supplier collaboration.
