Upcoming IT sourcing summit

Home Infrastructure Technology Upcoming IT sourcing summit

AN online event like no other, dedicated to overcoming the unique challenges and exploring the best practices for sourcing your organisation’s digital procurement.

In the age of Digital Darwinism, most organisations have failed to adapt and no longer exist.

In a volatile society like ours, where the digital revolution is changing the way we consume, communicate and get information, companies must adapt to keep up. The conference shows what every CPO and CIO must know to get ahead of the technology revolution.

This year’s event takes place on 8 June, and will be held under the theme Digital Darwinism – Embracing the Technological Revolution. It is a free-to-attend, virtual conference.

This year’s summit also provides a one-stop shop approach for CPOs, CTOs and CIOs to view IT solutions in the demo sessions.

The top enabling technologies for procurement will be explored in a presentation by MTN’s Group Executive and Chief Procurement Officer Dirk Karl. “This session will enable delegates to master the art of achieving true automation for the procurement function and understand what a 360-degree buyer’s guide to modern eProcurement software looks like,” explained Debbie Tagg.

A compelling addition to the 2022 IT Sourcing Summit is a series of vendor-led demonstration sessions. “These will offer procurement buyer delegates an important opportunity to learn about and evaluate the latest innovations and market-leading solutions, and to engage with a range of vendors at a ‘one-stop shop’,” said Tagg.

The solutions and services that will be showcased include artificial intelligence, the internet of things, cloud and data centres, blockchain and fintech, enterprise mobility, procurement and supply chain software.
