CIOs To Meet About Entertainment Supply Chain
What does IT have to do with the entertainment supply chain? Everything. The research of MNDS International indicates that over the last five years all the major studios except one and their three major replicators have invested nearly $1.5 billion in installing SAP systems, mainly the financial and the human resource management suites. With such a massive IT infrastructure now in place, the potential for greater collaboration amongst the supply chain partners now exists to provide an increasingly efficient sharing of information. The challenge is to leverage these IT assets to grow sales as well as squeeze costs out of the supply chain. Fortunately, new technologies and architectures have emerged to make the quest for visibility and control over complex supply chain processes practical. CIOs from leading studios will address these issues and more.
