The power of procurement ecosystems


Let's unpack the power of procurement ecosystems

18:00 on November 8th at ETH Zurich

Join us at ETH Zürich for The power of procurement ecosystems, hosted in partnership with Prof. Dr. Stephan Wagner, Chair of Logistics and Procurement Management. Together, we will explore recent shifts from a Procurement suite-centered perspective towards a best-of-breed or hybrid approach in Procurement technology. This shift requires suites to open up towards start-ups and best-of-breed providers to pursue an open integration mindset. Throughout the evening will explore different perspectives and their respective pros/cons with selected leaders within the industry. 

The event will be held in English.
