CW/S procurement has had a stable--maybe even boring--relationship with VMS as the technology mainstay for well over 10 years.
Now, however, new technologies and applications (like cloud computing and online work platforms) are available. While they have not yet had a major industry impact, leading organizations are already moving along the adoption curve.
2017 is looking to be a year where technology-based applications (like guided buying, self-sourcing, supplier networks, etc.) start to enter the mainstream. It's a year when heads-down practitioners like you will need to have eyes wide open; to look for new opportunities to achieve more and to avoid being left behind.
In this session, Andrew Karpie and Jason Busch map out CW/S technology trends and where they are taking root. --- More importantly, they will explain in ‘plain english’ how it will affect you – the practitioner (not the technologist).
Come explore actual applications and potential opportunities you can pursue to ‘up your game’ in sourcing, business user engagement, spend and risk management, et al.
With so many changes afoot, don’t be caught off guard in 2017. Join Andrew and Jason to find out how you will be impacted by technological developments in CW/S.
