OAKLAND, CA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- GT Nexus announced today that it will join longtime customer Lenovo on-stage at the Gartner Supply Chain Summit to share best practices and insights on the impact of business networks to obtain supply chain visibility. Mick Jones, Vice President of Supply Chain Strategy & Innovation at Lenovo, will describe Lenovo's use of operational data and visibility technology to enable a proactive, agile supply chain. He will be accompanied Greg Johnsen, Founder and Chief Marketing Officer at GT Nexus.
The Gartner Supply Chain Summit is being held in London September 10-12, 2014.
"End-to-end supply chain visibility continues to exist only as a concept at many companies, as they struggle to define and address this challenge," said Johnsen. "Lenovo has leapt out ahead of the pack by mapping out a clear path for end-to-end visibility that starts with a networked supply chain. Lenovo is a rare example of a company that's not only talking about it, they are actually living and breathing it."
Lenovo is the world's largest PC vendor and fourth largest smartphone company. It is a US$39 billion personal technology company with more than 54,000 employees (including joint ventures) in more than 60 countries serving customers in more than 160 countries. Lenovo has headquarters in Beijing, China and Morrisville, North Carolina, U.S.; and major research and manufacturing centers in countries around the world.
