The transformative journey of procurement

Kickstarting the event on Day 1 Mark Gilham, Evangelist at Enable discussed various aspects of technology and its impact on procurement and supply chains. 

Prevalent to the business world, technology has transformative capabilities across various industries. But Gilham emphasises the importance of adopting the right kind of technology for specific needs, rather than simply following trends. 

“There's so much technology out there. Those who are using it - whether they're embracing it or reluctantly adopting it -  technology is affecting us all of the time [...] but I'm not going to sit here and tell you you have to adopt technology because it's about the right technology that we have to adopt and embrace,” said Gilham.

Continuing to reflect on the impact of technology for procurement and supply chain, Gilham discusses:

  • The challenges facing procurement (including AI and blockchain) and the complexity of digital transformation
  • How technology can help during uncertain times (such as COVID-19) and its benefits for keeping up with changing political and business landscapes
  • The potential automation can offer procurement and the importance of data 
  • How technology should complement not replace human skills 

“Don't just listen, challenge, co-create and really participate and together we can continue to redefine procurement. It's already come a long way, but I think we all agree it's not going to stop. So let's pave the way for a more sustainable world,” concluded Gilham.
