This presentation will focus on how different companies need to adapt to the Internet economy, shrinking product lifecycles and worldwide operations. In such conditions, it becomes imperative that the information chain in the enterprise -which spans all internal operations in the company, as well as customer facing transactions and relationships with vendors and contract manufacturers - becomes a crucial asset. Businesses which focus on managerial and executive visibility into exception-driven intelligence across the information chain have the opportunity to consolidate market leadership.
