Companies and government agencies have recognized for many years that understanding and managing their supply chains brings competitive advantage for businesses and high performance to the mission for Government agencies.  Over the past few years there has been unprecedented change to supply chain data.  It is more pervasive to have it and it much more quickly available, due to influences such imbedded measurement capabilities (e.g., RFID) and real time systems that capture and aggregate data on massive scales. This availability of data creates opportunities to analyze, extract, and utilize this data to identify patterns, and channel this information to better decision making. Business analytics techniques such as statistical analysis, data mining, and network modeling are uniquely valuable in taking advantage of these new and extremely rich sources information.  Potential related applications cover a wide range, including the Department of Defense, U.S. Postal Service, Department of Homeland Security, and many others.  

This workshop brings together thought leaders from the Robert H. Smith School of Business, IBM and the Federal Government to provide perspectives and share ideas on how to utilize the wealth of information and data on the Internet through Business Analytics techniques. The presentations will focus on leveraging analytics methodologies utilizing supply chain data, communicating insights from existing studies, and identifying potential applications of similar techniques to new problems.  A panel discussion will seek to analyze and highlight synergies across the ideas and methodologies provided by the presentations.
