This Think Tank Session focuses on the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) (and agent technologies as one form of AI) into enterprise-level software, specifically, in the area of Supply Chain Management (SCM). Eighteen to twenty invitation-only participants will have the opportunity to brainstorm with one another as thought leaders and have the opportunity to:

• Acquire an understanding of the potential of AI to add unique features to collaborative software in the area of SCM for the next 12-18 month market.
• Gather information on future 18-36 month market opportunities and challenges.
• Become familiar with the current and potential players in this space.
• Be seen and heard as a thought leader in group discussions and breakout sessions.
• Network for professional and business development opportunities.


• How can AI be used to automate or semi-automate SCM processes, like inter-company collaboration, for instance, to address questions regarding increasing responsiveness and information sharing?
• Speed may require that decisions be made locally rather than globally. How can AI help?
• In a cross-company situation, there are security and data sharing concerns. How can AI address these?
• How can AI be applied to automating the procurement process?
