IE Group Summit examines new market forces


April 11, 2011 - SCMR Editorial

Having attended IE Group’s “High-Tech Forecasting & Planning Summit” in the past, I can tell you that the event is rich in content and connections. And although it is “invitation only,” qualified professionals may still obtain entry.

This year’s event is in San Francisco, and SCMR will be there to capture exclusive market intelligence.

According to organizers, attendance is limited “to maintain an intimate setting and foster dialogue among all participants.” Past registrants are asked to come back to be brought up to date on new trends and discoveries.

And that is certainly part of the event’s appeal. But it’s still not too late for qualified professionals to obtain entry.

Meanwhile, we hope to bring readers up to date on how businesses are turning to a variety of enterprise processes, techniques and technologies to identify and capitalize on the challenges of modern markets. This summit promises to deliver just that.
