How do you create and improve procurement data visibility together with IT in a complex organization?
Today’s businesses have gone from possibly complicated to really complex. A good example is a company like Dentsply Sirona, which has grown through mergers and acquisitions, with numerous ERPs and many stakeholders. A decision was made to centralize procurement and thereby a requirement for centralized procurement data visibility and analytics. How did they do it? Procurement teamed up with IT to gather and validate data, build models and share that data with stakeholders for continuous improvement. They started by taking the requirements from procurement, supply chain and finance into consideration. Here you will learn about how they went about creating that structure and discuss lessons learned in the group:
Learn more about and discuss:
