Kafka + Machine Learning for Supply Chain 

August 21, 2019 - 12 PM CDT // 10 AM PDT

Automating multifaceted, complex workflows requires hybrid solutions like streaming 
analytics of IoT data, batch analytics like machine learning solutions, and real-time visualizations. Leaders in organizations who are responsible for global supply chain planning are responsible for working with and integrating with data from disparate sources around the world. Many of these data sources output information in real-time, which assists planners in operationalizing plans and interacting with manufacturing output. IoT sensors on manufacturing equipment and inventory control systems feed real-time processing pipelines to match actual production figures against planned schedules to calculate yield efficiency. 

Using information from both real-time systems and batch optimization, supply chain managers are able to economize operations and automate tedious inventory and manufacturing accounting processes. Sitting on top of all these systems is a supply chain visualization tool, enabling users' visibility over the global supply chain. If you are responsible for key data integration initiatives, join for a detailed walk through of a customer's use of this system built using Confluent and Expero tools.

Graham Ganssle Ph.D, P.D., Expero

Dr. G loves data. His favorite part of work is daydreaming up innovative solutions to quantifiable problems and planning an implementation strategy. Building intelligent systems is his passion whether it’s automated derivatives trading bots, adaptive image processing algorithms, or autonomous musical composers. Whether deep learning is the optimal solution or not, helping customers succeed through solving their analytics problems is where Graham finds the most satisfaction.
