We were delighted to participate in a few exciting events in partnership with SAP Ariba in Austin.
The Advantage of Data-driven Supplier Risk Management
Our Head of Client Solutions, Erin McVeigh, featured on a specialist panel alongside IBM and SAP Ariba at the world’s largest procurement and supply chain event, SAP Ariba Live.
The session provided an expert discussion forum where a diverse community of buyers and suppliers heard the latest in technology, innovation and market trends.
With supplier risk management now an integral part of strategic sourcing and procurement, the panel discussed how you can segment and monitor suppliers by risk categories, incorporate third-party data, manage risk due diligence, and resolve emerging issues.
SAP Ariba Sustainability Summit:
Strengthening sustainability programs through innovation
Our President, Sondra Scott, took part in the inaugural SAP Ariba Sustainability Summit in Austin, Texas.
During this exclusive event, Sondra sat on the Purpose Products Panel alongside Padmini Ranganthan, Global Vice President, SAP Ariba, Products and Innovation for Supplier Risk, Compliance and Sustainability Solutions.
The panel explored how innovation in procurement is creating real opportunities to strengthen sustainability programmes. Key discussion topics included:
- How do we help other organisations be more sustainable?
- What is the role of technology in procurement with purpose?
- What does the circular economy mean and where are we seeing it in action?
Our data and technology work in support of SAP Ariba’s mission of “Procurement with a Purpose”. We enjoyed engaging with the attendees about sustainability in supply chain and procurement operations.
