About

The TAG Supply Chain, Logistics and Manufacturing society brings together industry professionals from logistic and manufacturing functions to share insights and leading practices. By utilizing technology as the catalyst for positive change, our members increase the competitiveness, performance and profitability of their business.

The pace of technology innovation will continue to accelerate and the complexity of global supply chains will increase. Meanwhile, Georgia’s reputation continues to strengthen as a desirable location for global manufacturing and logistics companies. Supply Chain practitioners must embrace technology to achieve the flawless execution their customers expect.

The society’s mission, in part, is to create collaboration and education opportunities for Georgia’s supply chain and logistics community responsible for designing, developing, implementing or operating technology solutions to improve supply chain and logistics performance. Join us to learn the supply chain trends and achievements that are powering the modern supply chain.

The society also seeks to connect people, organizations, and companies that utilize technology in manufacturing production and the supporting supply chain.

Manufacturing has a significant impact on Georgia’s economy, accounting for output of over $50 billion, 90% of the state’s exports, and employment of over 350,000 people. Advances in technology have enabled manufacturing to become very high-tech, which is why manufacturing is expanding, including companies that are “reshoring”.  Indeed, manufacturing is not a “stand-alone” industry; it is part of a much broader supply chain and affects or is affected by an array of other industries and technologies.

As such, many of our events are in partnership with other TAG societies, enabling the society to leverage expertise in a variety of industries and technology areas to provide broad, rich, and relevant content to TAG members.  Past society events have focused on the Industrial Internet of Things, Operational Excellence, Smart Energy, Infrastructure, and Advanced Manufacturing technologies.

WSO2 Introduces Choreo, a Next-Generation Integration Platform as a Service for Cloud Native Engineering Using the Choreo iPaaS, now in public beta, developers can engineer in low-code and code simultaneously; build, test and deploy in Kubernetes; manage APIs; share them in a marketplace; and observe performance—all within hours not weeks

Enterprises worldwide are accelerating their digital transformation initiatives, with many starting years earlier than originally planned. But, too often, these initiatives are hampered by the lack of deep technical expertise required to get projects off the ground and deliver digital products and solutions. WSO2 addresses this challenge with today’s introduction of Choreo, the new integration platform as a service (iPaaS) for cloud native engineering.
