Rethink Procurement: Championing Data Strategy
1 February 2018
Capturing and applying data analytics in procurement can help improve productivity, provide real-time category insights and most importantly, deliver savings. However, failure to implement a robust enterprise-wide procurement data strategy may lead to insufficient quality data and insights. This may impact business decisions and competitiveness. At the center of effective procurement data analytics is a comprehensive data governance framework that transforms procurement from a “reactive” function to one that is “proactive” and future-ready. How can procurement champion data strategy and where should CPOs start?
Rethink Procurement: Empowering 360° Collaboration
5 April 2018
In an ideal world, procurement should meet stakeholders’ changing demands and specifications seamlessly. Various parts of the value chain should always be connected so that at any time, procurement possesses a holistic view of the spend category and supplier landscape. However, current procurement functions often have fragmented processes with existing tools falling short. How can procurement functions be empowered through digital solutions to collaborate more effectively with internal and external stakeholders?

Despite significant investment in automation, some companies have not been able to reap its full benefits. As emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and blockchain begin to converge, businesses can build towards a truly holistic P2P process. Are your procurement teams familiar with these technologies to truly digitalize P2P?
