Digital transformation is moving procurement into a period of significant change. It’s driven, mostly by an exploding ecosystem of digital solutions.
With access to new options such – as artificial intelligence – comes new expectations, specifically the need to provide a consumer-like buying experience for all categories.
As was found at PASA’s IT Day last week, the “forward look to the horizon” suggests the technology procurement buys is changing. What was a one-size-fits-all model, is becoming one where care is taken to architect a tech stack that can meet the needs of the business.
In today’s Art of Procurement Podcast, host Philip Ideson welcomes two guests: Dr. Ferhat Eryurt, a Partner at apsolut Group, a SAP & SAP Ariba partner for on-premise, cloud & hybrid procurement solutions, and Lukas Wawrla, Co-founder and Managing Director at Archlet, an advanced data analytics solution to assist negotiations.
The trio discuss:
- where procurement is on the digitization journey today
- how procurement should manage the many options presented by combining platforms and best-of-breed solutions
- If procurement is giving enough weight to the stakeholder experience when building out a technology ecosystem.
