Register for this event

As organizations go deeper into digital transformation, the portfolio of IT suppliers has become broader. Sourcing often faces the challenge of rationalizing the supply base to address non-efficient tail spend. Collaboration with IT is critical, and it helps to have a structured approach at the start. In this interactive roundtable, you will gain insights and participate in a discussion on taming the IT tail.

Questions to consider during this roundtable discussion include:

  • How can sourcing articulate the value of portfolio rationalization with stakeholders?
  • Which frameworks work best for analyzing and guiding decisions on IT categories?
  • When should we let go of the traditional sourcing lever of “volume consolidation” and look for rational ways to expand the portfolio?
You will learn:
  • How to define and promote the benefits and drawbacks of portfolio rationalization
  • How a rationalized supplier portfolio can be impacted by changing market trends
  • How to build a framework to guide stakeholders in evaluating IT tail spend 
  • Strategies to turn legal from the “deal preventor” to the “business enabler”
