Webinar: Designing the Procurement Virtual Factory -- Reinventing Procurement Through a Platform

CARMEL, IN -- (Marketwired) -- 02/15/17 -- Determine, Inc. (NASDAQ: DTRM), the pioneering leader in global Source-to-Pay and Enterprise Contract Lifecycle Management (ECLM) Cloud Platform solutions, will present a live webinar on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 11AM ET / 8AM PT.

Pierre Mitchell of Spend Matters and Julien Nadaud, Chief Product Officer at Determine will explore how using a platform-based approach (the virtual factory) is critical to rethinking and reinventing procurement services. Using many industry examples, they will specifically hone in on the digital requirements to support these new approaches.

In addition to how technology firms are trying to cope with a new mandate to deliver economic value at scale, regardless of complexity, they will discuss and debate emerging platform trends and technologies, including:

  • How "platform design" approaches can industrialize Procurement services to deliver more value at scale (in the face of complexity and constraints)
  • How to apply "mass customization" techniques to category management, contract management, and P2P -- without custom software
  • Applying consumerized B2C innovations to B2B procurement processes, including user-centered design and predictive analytics to "guide" better sourcing and buying
  • How to modularize your processes and systems to get integration AND flexibility (i.e., make Procurement, IT, suppliers AND requisitioners happy!)
  • Evolving information -- and not just processes. The journey from documents and data to knowledge and "intelligence" requires new approaches and tools

Online registration for the webinar is still available.
