Kimberly-Clark Using Microsoft BI Tools to Enhance Supply Chain
This Microsoft customer spotlight demonstrates how effective SharePoint and Excel have driven efficiency into the Kimberly-Clark inventory and manufacturing processes. This has led to more accurate forecasting, avoiding out-of-stock scenarios, and realizing an additional $10 million in revenue.

My name is Hugo Evans. You can also find me on twitter @TechPAScode. I am the CIO for A.T. Kearney Procurement & Analytic Solutions (www.atkearneypas.com). I love how technology is reshaping our world. However, I am not a fan of technology for technology's sake and loath over-hyped technology. Effective technology, I believe, combines a balanced mix of people, process, and tools. My goal is to share stories about these types of technologies infused with my dry sense of humor. Hope you find them informative and applicable to your life and/or career.
