Episode 4 | Vlog - Know Why the Procurement Team is a Silent Warrior

Procurement is one topic that has often been discussed in tech circles but being a dry subject, it has never evoked the same excitement as perhaps the other affiliate activities related to technology. However, in reality, procurement has always remained a silent warrior. Because of this, it is important to understand that the SAP procurement process requires several steps and processes. It includes SKUs needed while migrating from ECC to S/4 HANA, SAP licensing, and SAP subscriptions, along with SAP support parameters, SAP database, and SAP infrastructure requirements. All these necessitate a greater role being played by the SAP procurement process important for your digital transformation strategy.

In this latest episode, Martyn Hope, VP, Business Acceleration, Evosys is joined by our guest speaker, Tatiana Artahona, ex-global ERP Strategy & Transformation Manager at a global telco business, discusses the importance of the procurement team and the role it plays in any reimplementation programs and digital transformation strategy. Any new technology whilst being absorbed by the organization requires a lot of documentation, technical, contractual, and legal procedures. All of these the procurement team has to look into. Plus, costs like CapEx and OpEx have to be taken into consideration. These long-term evaluations combined with other contractual obligations, vendor capabilities, and future technological need forecasts pose a formidable challenge to any organization, and hence the role that procurement plays can never be undermined. Hope and Artahona discuss all of these problems faced by most organizations and how to overcome them.

  • Here is why SAP customers are considering moving to Oracle Cloud Aug 3 2021 1:00 pm UTC 27 mins
    Jonathan Corbett, Martyn Hope
    Technology is a game changer – as long as it works right!

    SAP has laid the groundwork for software that can manage the key business processes of an organization. However, SAP has its challenges when it comes to driving enterprise integration and security, according to Hasso Plattner's (SAP's Supervisory Board Chief) statement in a recent interview with Handelsblatt.

    He said "We bought some companies just because they had a nicer user interface. But that's not enough." Integration isn't working yet at SAP, he adds. "That's a fact, sad to say."

    Also, SAP has recently faced a lot of trouble as it was unable to offer the same security standards on all components. On this Plattner said, "That too showed the fundamental mistake: we have to have the same level of security in all the components."

    Please join us in exploring the options you have and buckle up to get empowered with a true cloud offering.

  • Episode 3 | Key Insights on Digital Transformation Strategy to Retain Talent Recorded: Jul 22 2021 18 mins
    Martyn Hope
    One of the inherent ingredients for success to the cloud transformation strategy is an effective amalgamation of people and processes. This is the combination that brings in the digital transformation, and the one that the changing times warrant. Join Martyn Hope, VP, Business Acceleration, Evosys, in conversation with our guest speaker Tatiana Artahona, ex-global ERP Strategy & Transformation Manager at a global telco business, to understand what role people, partners, and talent play to bring about the change in an environment which is rapidly undergoing technological disruption.

    This particular episode is dedicated to how to retain talent despite the intense competition between companies and the new role of traditional IT – from simply being a support domain to a more nuanced player – this session provides answers to a lot of similar questions. The difference between partners and internal teams, and the responsibility each carries, is also another subject matter that has seldom been given a second thought. With the advent of SaaS, IT has changed for the better. With frontier tech getting absorbed at a faster pace than ever before, IT simply cannot remain just as a repository of tickets and management. It is now but a knowledge pool of advanced science. For organizations to become lean and mean, this digital transformation is an absolute necessity.
