9th CSCR Forum on on e-business and e-supply chain
November 29, 2012
 
The 9th CSCR Supply Chain Forum at SBE-UMT invited Rana Mubashar Hussain, Chairperson of Multilines IT Solutions, as the guest speaker in a session on “E-Business and E-Supply Chain” on November 29, 2012. The seminar was attended by ERP students, IT and SBE faculty members.

The guest speaker highlighted an increased uptake of e-business across supply chains, outlined a shift in focus to more strategic activities across the whole supply chain network and revealed emerging characteristics of e-supply chains. A number of strategic opportunities that can be supported through e-supply chains were identified. Firstly, e-business technologies were being used for integrating supply chain-related systems leading to improved information sharing and visibility. Secondly, they were being used to increase the flexibility of supply chains and thirdly, to improve the level of personalization in supply chains. Organizations are, however, likely to face a range of organizational, security, technological, cultural and social barriers that may challenge the use of e-supply chains.

After attending this session, the attendees got to know the answers to the problems which they were facing in their practical lives; they also got to know what e-business and e-supply chain is and how both can complement each other in this electronic era.

At the end of the session, Ijaz Yusuf, Director, Center for Supply Chain Research (CSCR) concluded the session by sharing his views with the participants. He also presented a shield to guest speaker as a token of thanks. The session ended with the refreshment for the participants who enjoyed themselves and interacted with each other informally.
