What Our Members Are Saying

Sam Palmisano, Chairman, Center for Global Enterprise

“Technology has enabled companies to rush towards Big Data, and I understand the excitement. But sometimes, smart leaders need to get away from the herd. They need to encourage their people to think about data at a granular level. Exactly what data do we need to improve performance? Exactly what data do we have that would be valuable to others?”

Michael Crowe, CIO, Colgate-Palmolive (USA)

“While the use of external demand signal data is becoming increasingly important as we advance our Digital Supply Chain initiative, the preparation of the data remains a pain point. Mapping and cleaning data is labor intensive. We are adding machine learning capability to the process of mapping and cleaning data to increase automation and improve speed.”

“Customers are demanding more customization and better product, services, and experiences. Understanding customers’ preferences will be a huge game-changer.”

Mike Corbo, Chief Supply Chain Officer, Colgate-Palmolive (USA)

“In the near future, as we develop more 3D printing capability and knowledge, we will be able to accelerate our innovation and new product development process greatly. Where it takes a week or more today, we’ll be able to create a new product mold and cap in just a day for quick prototyping. Coupled with sensors, social media, retailer and big data analytics, we’ll be able to both shape, predict and quickly respond to new customer demands and grow market share.”

“3D printing is radically changing how we use digital technology to create and produce products that you simply can’t do with traditional methods. For example, we recently launched our first footwear that was digitally 3D fabricated and manufactured — the UA Architect — offering athletes a “super-hybrid” trainer that solved an unmet need through a proprietary 3D printing process. This digital technology, coupled with others like sensors, robotics, big data and analytics, will enable us to engage with new customers, cut costs and transform how we plan, shape, predict and deliver to athletes around the world.”

“Most companies still don’t realize the value of their data. It’s kept in silos. Companies need to breakdown the silos and realize their data is an asset they can monetize and barter.”

Brian Simons, CEO, Janus Logistics Technologies

“Information is inherently valuable and data is the currency in which information is traded. The DSCI framework of data trading brings needed focus to a process that already happens to some extent within and across organizations. The biggest opportunity around data trading is to formalize the process and take advantage of valuable data assets.”
