Big Data Analytics for Supply Chain & Procurement

Every year, big data for supply chain & procurement seems to get bigger, with more and more diverse types of data being created and streaming into the typical procurement organization and presenting CPOs and their teams with immense opportunities to create value across the enterprise. But it’s not that simple. Many CPOs and procurement teams are overwhelmed with the sheer volume, intensity, and diversity of data today, and struggle just to manage that data, let alone leverage. But if CPOs and their teams can overcome the management and analytic challenges of big data for procurement (ideally by adopting automated solutions, and standardizing and linking their processes), then they will be well positioned to extract value from their data and drive that value across the enterprise. This 1-day interactive training course provides all the required knowledge to be able to understand the fundamentals of Big Data Analytics, provides practical examples to make the concept clearer and pragmatic pointers to be able to implement them in your organization. The Chinese word for crisis is comprised of two symbols: danger and opportunity. For those procurement organizations that remain flooded with big data, they will continue to be in danger of being overwhelmed and unable to make use of that data. But for those teams that have put the right technology and processes in place, there are numerous opportunities to not only manage big data for procurement but leverage it across the whole supply chain.
