We’re delighted to be bringing you a great live discussion on successful supply chain transformation based on Avaya’s first-hand experience. Join us on Thursday, April 30 at 1pm EST (5pm UTC) for “Supply Chain Transformation: Avaya’s Journey.” In this live webcast, Bryan Ball, Aberdeen Group and Benji Green, Avaya, will discuss the challenges that were impeding Avaya’s ability to achieve a best-in-class supply change and their key drivers for change. Learn about the five-phase approach Avaya used to shift focus from low-value, reactionary data management tasks to high-value, proactive activities, and how the combination of people, process and technology led to achieving far-reaching success.
