Improving visibility in your IT procurement
This briefing shows procurement directors how to make their function more strategic and commercial so that they increase their value to the business.
As we enter a new age of digital technology and the complexity of modern enterprises explodes, the ability of procurement departments to keep track of their IT and telecom estates is being seriously challenged. Consequently procurement departments are increasingly on the back foot and finding it harder to keep a check on the life cycle value of their telecoms and IT.
