Quintiq to advance "Big Data" conversation to "Big Calculations" at Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference

May 19, 2014 | Radnor, PA

Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), today announced that Dr. Victor Allis, its co-founder and CEO, will be speaking at the upcoming Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.

Following up on last year’s presentation “The Missing Piece of the Profit Economy,” Dr. Allis will discuss how to move beyond the “Big Data” headline to achieve real business value with “Big Calculations” in his presentation, “Calculated Decisions: The key to solving the efficiency puzzle.” The presentation will offer a perspective and roadmap for increasing speed, efficiency, and competitiveness by activating data; it will take place on Tuesday, May 20 at 11:15 a.m. MT in the Grand Canyon 8 ballroom. Following the presentation, Dr. Allis will be available for one-on-one discussions.

“The biggest ‘Big Data’ myth is that it is all about the data,” said Dr. Allis. “Big Calculations unlock the value of data and enable a company to optimize. I look forward to sharing our views on the ‘data value spectrum,’ and I will reveal the steps to activate the potential of data as well as discuss our customers’ experiences.”

The Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, May 20-22, is a gathering of the top innovative supply chain executives to discuss the state of the industry and share the tools and strategies for the future. Quintiq has been recognized by Gartner as a leader in the March 6, 2014 Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning System of Record. The company is also a premier sponsor of this year’s event, and experts will be available at booth 110 to discuss supply chain challenges in detail and demonstrate the efficacy of the Quintiq software platform.
