The Challenges of Convenience

Connect. Share. Learn.

It’s safe to say convenience is a way of life.  We shop on, order takeout with DoorDash, take a bike ride on a whim with Lime.  However, if you’ve ever looked at the path taken by a product ordered from, say, China, you know our convenience is anything but easy.  
We cordially invite you to attend our upcoming TDWI Northwest Chapter meeting to learn about the challenges posed moving physical goods around the globe.  You know data is behind it all… Come meet other local professionals, build your network, share ideas, and exchange career advice while learning of how leading companies address the challenges of conducting business.
