Hear how giving enterprises a “digital brain” helps them make better, faster decisions.

From retailers to consumer brands, industrial manufacturers to suppliers, global companies with traditional operating models are under pressure to accelerate their digital transformation.

In this episode of Masters of Digital Transformation, Tony sits down with Chakri Gottemukkala, CEO and co-founder of o9 Solutions, to discuss a) what he’s hearing as digital transformation priorities from CXOs of global companies b) how the o9 platform is transforming Integrated Business Planning (IBP) capabilities into the “digital brain” of the enterprise c) advice for transformation-minded executives on how to make it happen faster.

Key Takeaways

  • Coffee to tires, toothbrushes to capital equipment: every global company is transforming its traditional operating models to be relevant in the digital age. Digital transformation of customer engagement, products, and end-to-end operations means more real-time data than ever before.
  • Chakri describes the o9 platform as the "digital brain" of the enterprise: Integrated business planning and decision-making capabilities transformed for the digital age.
  • The digital brain connects all the real-time data from the customer, market, and internal operations and creates real-time visibility to leading indicators and rich market and supply chain knowledge.
  • The digital brain uses this knowledge to transform and increase the accuracy of how a company forecasts demand, using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), and analytics.
  • It transforms slow and siloed commercial and supply chain planning and decision-making faster and in a more integrated way than ever before, making it the core engine and value driver of digital transformation.
