So you have to make a decision. They say that indecision can be worse than wrong decision, but the fact remains you'll need the right team in place to deploy your spend and the right technology to enhance it. All of these moving parts point to one word: intelligence. Arguably the most important aspect of procurement, intelligence and advanced analytics are needed for better supply intelligence to boost savings and innovation while reducing risk.
