Elevate Procurement performance and deliver optimal business outcomes through data insights and intelligence.

 

Harness intelligence and deploy big data & analytics to identify patterns, early warnings and triggers to deliver real time value. Develop a forward prediction capability & increase your circle of influence on the broader business eco-system by joining the dots between procurement, the business & the market.

  • DESIGN AND EXECUTE YOUR INTELLIGENCE HARNESSING JOURNEY

    – proficiently harness intelligence by unpacking and mapping the people, processes, and technology at different stages of the journey

  • INTELLIGENCE, BIG DATA & ANALYTICS AS A PATH TO STAKEHOLDER COLLABORATION

    – the insight gleaned from big data can be a valuable tool to initiate meaningful conversations and relationships with internal stakeholders and open doors that might otherwise be shut – hear how to optimise existing data and connect procurement data with other business data to make yourself more relevant within the organisation

  • RISK MANAGEMENT

    – take full advantage of the potential intelligence offers: hear through practical case studies, better monitor risk and ensure continuity in your supply chains

  • INTELLIGENCE SOURCING, HARNESSING & MANIPULATION

    – identify the sources of intelligence both within and outside your own company – what is it, where can you find it and how can you manipulate it?

  • INTEROPERABILITY

    – while it’s easy enough to find external sources of intelligence that can enhance your own, or combine data sets from two different parts of the business, the way most databases are structured can make it difficult to combine them; especially difficult for companies who are merging with others and have different historic systems for storing data

  • MAXIMISING EXISTING SYSTEMS

    – while just about everyone has an enterprise database system that they have to live with (often SAP/Ariba), and while there are many companies out there proposing new/better/faster tools, most procurement execs would prefer to make use of what they have before buying in new tools; yet understanding how to get the most from existing systems is a major headache

  • IDENTIFY, NURTURE AND RETAIN YOUR PROGRESSIVE PROCUREMENT TALENT

    – which skill set will deliver the desired outcome and give your organisation a competitive edge? Hear how to scope and attain the talent you need to get ahead
