Lora Cecere, aka The Supply Chain Shaman, records her day spent with 120 Supply Chain leaders at a recent GAINSystems event where they explored five reasons why we're not making more progress on Inventory Management.

"I am proud of GAINSystems for their work on master data management and machine learning. I started covering GAINS in 2001 as an analyst at Gartner. Today, the small company is innovating faster than larger competitors. Focused and caring, the company is making progress. While there are more sophisticated architectures and larger, more global organisations, GAINS is a great value for companies seeking to test new concepts at a reasonable price."
