If the debate is dead, what really matters in best-in-class procurement suites? Join Pierre Mitchell (chief research officer for Spend Matters) THIS Friday, Sept. 12, from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Central to find out. Pierre says: "There is an old debate about tightly integrated ERP vendor suites and deep functionality from niche best-of-breed providers. We’ll say it: That debate is dead. ERP vendors (and other providers) now have fragmented application portfolios, while many best-of-breed vendors have integrated suites. Still, ERP isn't going away, and procurement needs to get best-in-class information capabilities that move at the speed of the business – not the IT department."
In this short format webinar sponsored by Ivalua, we’ll explore:
- What a best-in-class procurement information architecture looks like from both business and technology standpoints
- The nature of procurement suites based on their true “suite-ness”
- How dashboards and analytics dovetail with master data management and business process automation to provide knowledge management and intelligence
- What are the emerging trends in next-generation procurement information architectures and what they can do for your procurement transformation?
There will also be a short demo to see some example functionality of some of these trends in action.
