Stop Shadow Spend in Its Tracks With Improved Data Visibility (Art of Procurement, Vendr)

February 7th, 1pm ET

Although procurement doesn't talk about non-compliant, maverick, or rogue spend as much as we used to, some categories - like cloud software - have their own related compliance challenges. "Shadow spend" is easy for buyers to initiate but hard for procurement to track... and that makes generating savings a real challenge. Join Emily Campbell and Nick Pinkman from Vendr for this AOP Live session.

February 8th, 10am ET

Although the events and circumstances making business continuity have changed, the time-tested principles for navigating and surviving them still apply. Join business continuity and resilience experts Paul Cutler, Andrew Morkot, and Ken Clarke for this webinar as they discuss the intersection of business continuity, operational resilience, and regulatory compliance.
