The Future of the Consumer Products Industry – The SAP Industry Cloud Series – Futurum Tech Podcast Interview Series
by Daniel Newman | July 8, 2021

On this special episode of the Futurum Tech Podcast – Interview Series I am joined by David Dobson, Global Industry Director Retail, Hospitality, & Consumer Goods at Intel and John Buckley, Consumer Products Industry Advisor for SAP. This is the second episode in a new series — done in partnership with SAP and Intel — where I will be speaking with advisors and executives across seven different industries on the state of their industry and how SAP Industry Cloud powered by Intel technology plays a vital role in the future.

The Future of the Consumer Products Industry

In our conversation we discussed the following:

  • The top areas CPG companies must be focused on to win 2021
  • Some of the biggest obstacles companies are facing today that could impact 2022
  • How consumer products companies are leveraging technology in new ways
  • What the future of the industry looks like for the next 3 to 5 years.

The consumer products industry has experienced huge shifts in the last decade thanks to the recession, the rise of eCommerce and the global events of 2020. My conversation with David and John explores these changes and a little bit more. It’s definitely one you don’t want to miss.
