Reduce Vendor Risk, Negotiate Effectively, and Improve Financial Transparency

Are you faced with the growing challenge of accelerating business performance while optimizing costs?


The key to meeting this challenge is collaborating — internally within the IT finance, sourcing, procurement and vendor asset management organization, and with IT and business stakeholders, and externally, with technology and service providers. Continuous engagement is critical to identify risks and prioritize opportunities, influence at the right level, control costs, and ensure maximum leverage of the critical external capabilities required to drive successful business initiatives. 

 
Engaging with and influencing these critical internal and external constituencies is at the heart of the 2018 summit. The agenda is designed to help you:

 

  • Design a reliable roadmap to innovation, growth and profitability for IT and the business.
  • Define and cultivate roles and relationships and drive competitive advantage through collaboration.
  • Exploit IoT, AI, blockchain and other emerging technologies to their full potential. 
  • Negotiate better deals with higher value for IT services, software, SaaS, cloud and hybrid infrastructure.

 

In this new age of collaboration, leaders like you are the critical link between your organization’s internal capabilities and the external digital business ecosystem.
