OTTAWA, ON, July 12, 2022 /CNW/ - Kinaxis® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the authority in driving agility for fast, confident decision-making in an unpredictable world, announced today that it is hosting its annual conference "Kinexions JAPAN‘22" virtually July 15, 2022.

Over the last few years, companies have faced multiple challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as geopolitical issues, leading to rapidly growing supply chain risks. In addition, Japanese companies also need to be ready to address issues rising from the depreciation of the yen, resource depletion, and high prices. With the theme of "Ready. Together." Kinexions JAPAN’22 will introduce examples of digital supply chain solutions, and how management and IT contribute to improve companies’ competitiveness in these hard times. Kinaxis customers will share best practices for companies moving from Excel to Advanced Planning with capabilities and processes for PSI, Demand & Supply synchronization, Inventory Planning, and Control Tower. The annual conference will also provide opportunities to learn about a new deployment methodology invented during the pandemic to achieve go-live implementation in just one quarter.

Spokespersons include Takao Yajima, Chairman of CIO Lounge, talking about the necessity of DX for companies. Brent Wilson, Senior Vice President of Qualcomm talks about how, as a semiconductor manufacturer, concurrent planning is needed to overcome uncertainty and enter new markets such as automotive, computing, and the intelligent edge.

“Following our successful Kinexions’22 in May, I am thrilled to hold Kinexions in Japan again this year to support our partners and clients in a world of turmoil,” said John Sicard, CEO of Kinaxis. “We strongly believe that our accumulated experience and knowledge of digital supply chain systems will show new ways to contribute to business growth in today’s uncertain times.”
