Moving Your Business Forward
Today's world is full of disruptions. Due to further shortages and increasing prices, procurement and supply chain professionals remain in the spotlight to ensure supply, business continuity and cost control. Some organizations are prepared to face the challenges, and some not. Where is your company standing?

In a connected world, where continuous data exchange, collaboration, and visibility are crucial for the business, the adoption of digital technology is a no-brainer. However, technology needs to go beyond automation and document exchange.

In this 2-hour online session, SAP offers an interactive platform to gain an understanding on intelligent spend & business network solutions, capture latest information on architecture and extensions, and what is next to come.
