This 30-minute web conference will be followed by Q&A.

CIOs, CPOs and business unit leaders overwhelmingly agree that technology sourcing and procurement is critical for digital transformation and legacy system modernization. Nevertheless, recent IDC research confirms that technology sourcing and procurement organizations are challenged to deliver what their businesses require. IT and line of business executives report of their procurement organizations that:

  • 54% do not understand business needs
  • 62% are undermined by shadow procurement
  • Only 10% work effectively within cross-functional teams

Procurement organizations have a choice of transforming themselves or watching other enterprise organizations assume the responsibility for sourcing the technology that supports key business initiatives. In this IDC web conference, we will identify the top challenges identified by Procurement, IT, and LOB executives, and discuss strategies for transforming procurement organizations from tactical administrative centers to strategic sourcing partners for the enterprise.
