Procurement has changed considerably in the last decade, and the digital transformation will have a dramatic impact on the way procurement organizations do business. Speed, performance, agility, visibility, and control will become even more important when designing procurement processes and running procurement IT systems.
This course will cover current and future procurement trends, as well as the key aspects of how organizations can manage modern operational procurement processes and the entire source-to-pay process with SAP S/4HANA and SAP Ariba solutions - including the Ariba Network as the world’s largest business network. You’ll learn how SAP can help you to transform your procurement processes in the most efficient way to achieve additional business value for your company.
This course will also include a deep-dive into SAP’s latest procurement solution portfolio, and provide insights into the most promising transition paths to move from your current SAP SRM installation into the future. Topics like setting up cloud integration, choosing the right IT architecture, and linking central and local procurement will round off the course.
