Will all things be digital or digitized? The past year one may wonder. If you work in a large organization your digitization and digitalization have probably skyrocketed. EBG | Network are thrilled to start welcoming the great peers and experts joining the 11th annual Source 2 Pay Summit 2021 on May 6th!
On May 6th you who join us will be able to listen to – and discuss with – Anna Lagerhed, Head of Intelligent Automation at SSAB and Milap Patel, Global Strategy Lead | AI & Intelligent Automation at Ericsson.
Those of you who know EBG know we have followed Ericsson for several years. Sharing their roadmap to be as efficient as possible with the best possible effect. SSAB is a new acquaintance and we look forward to getting to know Anna and the company more!
Digitizing or digitalizing
What’s the value bringing together two completely different companies, taking about a common way of developing business processes and possibly business market offerings? For one – let’s start with digitizing and digitalizing. Are they the same? As Anna states:
Digitizing and digitalization is not necessarily the same thing. Perhaps a too philosophical question but still. Digitizing is normally used to turn analogue data into digital data, for instance through scanning paper invoices. Digitalization usually mean the transformation from an analogue/manual business to a digital.
And so you know already why you should attend this session. Because what we mean lays the foundation to the strategies we create and so the operationalization of the same. Throughout the years EBG have found (and this is the reason we do what we do) that too often we talk – but what we mean is not 100% clear.
This is where we will start this session. What does digitizing and digitalization mean to SSAB and Ericsson and to the functions where Anna and Alexander work? How have they chosen to organize and what role does digitizing and digitalization play in their organizations?
In short, we will ask all the questions we after 10 years think you can benefit from. You can of course send in your questions too (preferably when registering to give Anna and Alexander the time to prepare). You can see the main layout of the session below. EBG have also asked them to give at least one concrete example from the sourcing/procurement and finance sphere that relate to the specific area You work in.
Join their Theme Discussions
What sets any conference apart from other? For EBG it is the possibility and ability to connect peers and experts in an informal yet to the point way that enable people to learn from each other and ask questions that also may benefit the group.
You who join will also be able to join a Theme Discussion hosted by Anna and Alexander. There are two such sessions and we believe they will be fully booked straight away. Online Theme Discussions are limited seats, moderator led, pre-selected, on web-camera, online round table discussions. You need to choose prior to May 6th in order to join them. They enable you to truly meet with peers and experts. Joining from across Europe that you may just never have met otherwise!
EBG | Network have enabled these round table discussions for over 10 years – the only difference right now is the way we connect – online.
