When we think about cloud computing, we most often focus on the lower cost and increased flexibility it affords us. But as these benefits are realized, organizations are looking for new ways to leverage solutions in the cloud – requiring procurement to have even greater knowledge of how to evaluate and manage the resulting solution provider relationships. In this webinar, Mihir Nanavati, SVP of Products at Tradeshift, and Julien Nadaud, Chief Product Officer of Determine, will give their take on the innovations of cloud computing and the impact it’s having on enterprises today.

I’ve never been able to pass up a trends and predictions webinar, and this is no exception. From Ardent Partners’ perspective, 2015 was about making progress in the areas of global connectivity, business networks, contingent (external) workforce, and new platforms. Their high level call for 2016 is that we’ll need to keep all of those things (and more, no doubt) moving forward so that we can keep pace with the rest of the business.
