DALLAS, Jan. 21, 2024 – o9, a leading enterprise AI software platform provider for transforming planning and decision-making, today announced that it hosted an exclusive executive panel at the prestigious Alpen Gold Hotel during the 54th annual Davos World Economic Forum 2024 in Davos, Switzerland. This exclusive gathering brought together a group of global executives and government leaders to discuss the future of global supply chains, covering critical topics that included component shortages, the imperative of accelerating digital transformation, regionalization versus globalization, sustainability, and AI.

The panel featured a roundtable discussion led by Al Gore, Former Vice President of the United States; Feike Sijbesma, Chair of Philips and Co-Chair of Global Climate Adaptation Centers; and Chakri Gottemukkala, Co-Founder and CEO of o9. Attendees included C-level executives from global enterprises across various industries such as chemicals, capital equipment, consumer products, and automotive OEMs.

The discussion focused on crucial issues facing global supply chains in the post-COVID-19 era. The main points included the challenge of component shortages precipitated by intricate global interdependencies and the lag in digitalization by many companies. Moderator Feike Sijbesma stressed the need for improved visibility of companies’ global supply and demand chains, especially in the current global context. The participants were in agreement that technology is imperative in enabling such visibility and that integrated planning technology in particular is essential in breaking down the organizational silos that prevent companies from generating an end-to-end view of their demand and supply networks. A lively debate ensued about the paradigm shift from globalization to regionalization and how this could impact supply chain resilience and risk mitigation. Sustainability was also a significant topic, particularly the visibility of Scope 3 emissions and the impending European regulations requiring extensive reporting despite limited enforcement. Lastly, the attendees delved into the transformative role of AI and digital technologies in addressing these complex challenges, highlighting their potential to revolutionize supply chain management and organizational efficiency.

Chakri Gottemukkala, Co-Founder and CEO of o9 said, “We are immensely pleased by the insightful discussions and the exchange of ideas at our executive panel in Davos. This gathering of global leaders has highlighted the urgent need to embrace digital transformation and sustainability in our supply chains. From addressing post-COVID challenges to the potential of AI and digitalization, the depth of conversation signifies a pivotal moment in how we shape the future of global enterprises and their impact on the planet.”
