Just as we no longer think about spend and savings as accurate measures of procurement’s performance, implementing and integrating solutions does not equate to delivering digital value. That can only be captured in the experiential and operational capabilities created as a result of our digital investments.
Digital Outcomes 2023 will bring together an enlightening mix of speakers to help you reach beyond the adoption of critical digital solutions to achieve impactful digital outcomes.
Registrants will receive exclusive access to all session replays for the first 30 days following the event.
We will focus on digitally-enabled procurement contributions such as: 👇
👉 Building deep and actionable supply chain visibility
👉 Accelerating decision making and multi-scenario analysis
👉 Eliminating friction from internal and external user experiences
👉 Empowering the enterprise to navigate macroeconomic conditions and geopolitical threats
See Full Agenda Below 👇
Digital Outcomes 2023 will be between 10 am - 1 pm US Eastern Time, with each session available to watch again as soon as the session is over.
Digital Outcomes 2023 is made possible thanks to the support of:
