Next week, I will be presenting at the local ISM – Indianapolis on e-Sourcing technology, or if you follow the analysts…Supply Management as a Service (SMaaS). If you are within short driving distance after work, the contact details are:
Date: Thursday – Nov 16th (5:30pm)
Location: The Garrison – Fort Benjamin Harrison
Address: 6002 N Post Road, Indianapolis
Specifically, I will be covering how best in class buying organizations utilize e-Sourcing technologies, best practices, the benefits of sourcing automation, and specific examples/case studies. This will be introductory level to just build knowledge and understanding of what lies beyond reverse auctions.
I hope we can get a big crowd to make a good interactive session. I did a presentation for this same group in 2003 and we had about 75 attendees. The focus then was solely reverse auctions and now there is a lot more to e-Sourcing that people should understand.
