About the Content

The pressure to lower costs and improve efficiency while maximizing customer services has never been higher. Finance & procurement leaders must demonstrate that digitization can produce measurable enterprise value to justify increased investment in new technologies. Big data analytics and cloud computing provides a serious opportunity for the best organizations to have an edge over the competition.

Discussion Topics

  • Define the parameters of your digital transformation project
  • Communicate with stakeholders and get buy-in
  • Build your project plan
  • Strategically engage IT and your cloud computing infrastructure
  • Automate low value, repetitive work to free up time to focus on becoming more effective business partners
