The special issue of the Journal of Business Forecasting, Technology in Forecasting & Planning, is now available for download. Download it here.

This special issue is designed to help you make the right investment in forecasting and planning software. It includes articles on how to define your planning software requirements and how to avoid common post-implementation pitfalls, brought to you by experienced planning leaders that have taken the journey you may be embarking on now. It also features excellent commentary on whether Artificial Intelligence should be a decision maker or decision supporter in your organization, and valuable insight into how blockchain will improve demand planning in the years to come.

Underlying all this, we have a revealing interview with Doug Laney, the creator of Infonomics, which reveals the importance of developing a data-centric culture to properly leverage new technology. I am also pleased to say we interviewed Sir Ralf Speth, the CEO of Jaguar Land Rover, who discusses JLR’s journey in Big Data and the IoT. See the full list of articles here.
