I don’t know much about robotic process automation, but I know enough to know that I need to know more. I first heard about it in an Outsourcing Institute webinar a couple of months ago. We’ve heard a lot of about outsourcing under a variety of new labels, and it makes sense that this would be an extension of that. Robotic process automation certainly sounds promising… whatever it is. Since I can’t explain it better than that, this is the event I will attend this week.

If procurement struggles to demonstrate ROI based on shaky realized savings calculations and estimates, the challenge is that much more pressing to demonstrate ROI for the technologies we employ. In this event, Forrester Research Vice President Duncan Jones will talk through how to handle budgetary discussions as well as how eSourcing and eProcurement need to integrate with other broader solutions to have the desired impact. (Psst… if you can’t attend live, sign up anyway and they will send you an on demand link.)

As supply chain risk stays high on the priority list of organizations in a variety of industries, you need more than a plan to be effective. You also need to know where your organization is on the path to maturity. This is even more important if you are already employing mature sourcing strategies (such as global or low cost country sourcing) that increase risks on their own. In this webinar we will learn more about Neo group’s Risk Maturity Matrix and the factors that determine where your organization would fall on it.
