ProcureCon IT EU — The Autumn Event for Senior IT Professionals

Part of the expanding ProcureCon global event portfolio, ProcureCon IT EU is taking place this Autumn for its second year. As we said at its launch last year “spend in the IT ‘master category’ is huge for virtually every organisation, whether private or public and across pretty much every business sector from Oil & Gas to consumer goods, from business services to retail. So there should be a wide potential audience for this event.”

“What also makes it interesting right now is the level of disruptive change that the whole IT industry is going through, driven by the move to cloud technology and the ‘digitisation’ of pretty much everything. That means procurement practitioners in the field need to keep up with changes in the market and in terms of internal requirements if they are going to add value alongside IT colleagues.”

ProcureCon IT will gather more than 150 senior IT procurement executives from around the world to help solve strategic IT sourcing problems. There will be about 45 interactive case studies, roundtables and workshops spread across two days. There will also be plenty of time to network and make new contacts and solution providers will be on hand to demonstrate the latest thinking in the sector.

The events team have carried out a lot of research to ensure the agenda tackles the most pertinent questions in today’s workplace, interviewing 100 Heads of IT Sourcing from Fortune 1000 businesses.

So the agenda looks packed with interesting and informative themes that are relevant to all senior procurement IT folk, with the more strategic-level considerations such as: What Is The Business Transformation Required To Get From Good To Great? Re-Thinking Core IT Procurement Challenges; Driving Supplier Excellence; Next Generation IT Procurement Leadership. And the more practical-level guidance such as: Controlling The Cloud: Enable Business Innovation While Ensuring Cost Management; Legacy IT Systems - How To Overcome Barriers; Creating An IT Procurement Category Management Strategy That Fits Your Needs; Negotiating Better Software License Agreements; How To Transition Out and Unwind Supplier Agreements – to name a few.

The speakers come from a wide and varied list including, Global Category Managers, Heads of IT Purchasing, Directors of Strategic Sourcing, Heads of Contract Management and so on, from some of world’s largest and most well known firms.

The conference takes place on December 5-6, Mövenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre, Amsterdam. The agenda is here, and you can book here. And as a media partner, we are pleased to say there is a special 15% discount for readers using code SM15IT
