Enabling Effectiveness of Procurement Activities Through Data Driven Decisions


Procurement Analytics is the process of how data can be extracted, refined and analyzed to deliver actionable business insights. It touches procurement activities beyond spend analysis. It includes strategic sourcing, category management, contract management and procure-to-pay processes.

In strategic sourcing, analytics can identify which suppliers to include in sourcing projects and provide rich information into supplier’s quality and risk positions. In category management it can identify savings opportunities, segment and prioritize suppliers. In contract lifecycle management it can alert on contracts needing renegotiation and identify maverick spend to help compliance and improve contract coverage. In procure-to-pay processes, analytics can evaluate payment accuracy, discover rebate opportunities, identify mistaken payments and reduce fraud.

This workshop is the first of a series of workshops that we are planning to enable supply chain professionals to work with data-driven analytics-based tools. This workshop is a first in overall Supply Chain analytics focusing on the procurement function and designed to help create an action plan for transformation using analytics. A practice focused workshop, it will show participants how they can turn data insights into actionable business outcomes and forge a data culture with a single version of truth across functions. Further workshops in the sequence will be organised in the areas of Fulfilment Analytics, Supplier Risk & Performance
Analytics and Inventory Optimisation Analytics and more.
