Fully Digital SIG Global Procurement Technology Summit | May 11-15 | Event

Hundreds of procurement executives, experts, and thought leaders from across the world are coming together for the SIG Procurement Technology Summit that will be held online, offering an immersive experience in industry trends, innovations, and solutions that are shaping high-performance sourcing teams and best-in-class procurement organizations.

Everest Group’s Amy Fong and Michel Janssen will be presenting a session titled: 7 Overlooked Opportunities in Technology Sourcing, in which they will highlight supply base strategy, pricing and contracting strategies that sourcing teams can implement to optimize costs and modernize delivery in technology services and outsourcing.

Procurement professionals are charged with digitally transforming their function and enabling digital transformation of the broader organization through category strategies, sourcing, and supplier management. As digital changes the marketplace, sourcing practices must change as well. Are you keeping up? In this session, Amy and Michel will highlight the areas of technology evolution that sourcing teams can impact the most. They’ll highlight important trends that procurement professionals should be aware of in key services categories like IT services and contingent labor. They’ll also deep dive into significant related changes in pricing strategies, SLAs, and contract terms – all based on Everest Group’s insights from working with hundreds of companies.
