How are you using data to stay informed and inform those in need of insights? EBG | Network welcome Carlos Cruz, VP Procurement Transformation – Compliance at Bayer to Sourcing Outlook 2021. On November 25th you who join us will choose four Theme Discussions – online round table discussions – and meet with an experienced moderator and a peer group. You will discuss different topics each moderator want to discuss with You. This is not a conference you sign up for and do not log on to. Limited seats, EBG connect you prior and after (if you want to). This is the way EBG have brought people together since 2010, also now when we temporarily still need to meet online.
During this session you will get hands on practical data communication and visualization experience exchange. You can draw from how your peers group are using data to ensure internal and external compliance.
How are you using data and advanced analytics to ensure compliance in procurement practices?
At Bayer, Compliance enables us to translate our mission into good business results and is therefore a crucial success factor within Procurement on which we cannot compromise. In 2020, goods and services were procured from 97,362 suppliers for approximately €17.7 billion and recorded in the Group-wide Bayer reporting system.
During this session you will discuss ways of working to ensure compliance in procurement. We will also exchange on how data analytics can help procurement to more actively manage risks and reduce value leakage.
How do You enable fact based insight and collaboration across the organization?
- How do you leverage advanced analytics from big data to support category leads and senior management?
- How do you measure adherence to Procurement guidelines?
- In what ways do you provide data to the business and back to the procurement organization?
- How is data usage and analytics developing as technology is advancing?
