There is a lot of discussions today about digitizing almost any part of business processes across organizations. Finance, procurement, supply chain, HR, logistics – you name it. What is interesting – since automation is nothing new – is that technologies are no longer science fiction but applied science.
One of the best aspects of the report is the definition of source to pay. For long seen as purely transaction aspects we here get a better description:
In the >>report McKinsey & Company share the view that “Several emerging technologies, including robotic process automation (RPA), machine learning, and advanced artificial-intelligence programs or “cognitive agents,” have the potential to overcome hitherto stubborn barriers to automation in the enterprise environment. By applying a new form of analysis to the hundreds of individual tasks involved in the source-to-pay process, we have found that almost 60 percent of them have the potential to be fully or largely automated using currently available technologies.”
Technology isn’t all
At Sourcing Outlook 2018 we will not only learn about how companies are choosing to embrace technology to be more efficient. We will learn about overall trends in the market, skill sets needed, what companies that do well do and what each in the room can consider when choosing how to develop further.
Apart from sharing their know how during a keynote presentation – Mauro and Riccardo invite you who join the summit to join their round table discussions – you do not want to miss that opportunity!
