Futurte of Procurement

A New Era for Big Data in Procurement: The Convergence of IoT, Blockchain, and Artificial Intelligence by Bertrand Maltaverne

 There is an important issue in the world of Procurement. While the future of the function is at stake, too many CPOs and Procurement organisations are looking at the future of Procurement solely through a technological prism and consider technology as the end (when it is the means to an end).

It is no surprise then that the questions that are at the top of their agenda are centered around what technology (RPA, blockchain, big data, AI,…) they should focus on and implement. It is as if this or that piece of technology would magically fix all of their problems.
