Podcast: Network of the Future, Part IV

Managing big data is like a conductor leading an orchestra. When done well, it creates complete synchronization.

John Dodero was working with big data before we even called it big data. So the UPS vice president of industrial engineering is the perfect guest to wrap up our Network of the Future series.

John will take us behind the scenes of the journey of a package – through each and every package scan from origin to destination.

How do we use this treasure trove of data to plan for a rapidly changing future? What happened when UPS drivers thought they could outsmart the computer? And why should you care about this quest for better information?

This much is certain: You may feel the need to order an apron from Boise, Idaho.

Confused? Give this episode a listen – clarity will follow.

 

John Dodero is Vice President of Industrial Engineering at UPS.
