OVERVIEW
 

Ever since the invention of money, people have had a need to know "what am I spending my money on?" It turns out that the ability to answer that question really well (in the right ways) can make a business much more competitive. As organizations increasingly automate their sourcing and procurement and cross-enterprise processes, it generates enormous amounts of detailed electronic data. This opens up huge opportunities for using analytics to improve an enterprise's performance.  Challenges abound in doing this, but technologies, practices, and services have come a long way in recent years.

This seminar is designed to help your organization assess its readiness, find out the different ways spend analytic tools are being used, understand the spend analysis process and available tools, and learn from what others have done.  What we will cover:
