I had the pleasure of being on a great webinar with Jon Hansen, Jack Shaw, and Sally Hughes last week, hosted by Zycus and EBG Network.
The session focused on Procurement AI, and it was great to listen to Sally, Jack, and Jon discuss some of the challenges being faced in deployment of AI in procurement.
Most would probably agree this is a complex challenge and not an easy one to answer. What will professionals need to do in order to stay relevant in an AI world? The available choices too are of course limited but it is interesting that predictive analytics and establishing a strong data foundation are sticking out as individual answers from the respondents. Data is considered as company gold and very hard to manage across businesses, in between businesses and suppliers. Yet most of our data is still being handled on Excel spread sheets.
Listen in on this session for some great insights.
