About this talk

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.
