For many companies, services procurement has become the new procurement. Companies are investing and prioritizing larger-scale services procurement programs to drive savings and compliance across broad-ranging categories, from temporary labor and finance/legal to aftermarket support. During this discussion, Spend Matters' Jason Busch will introduce the current state of services procurement from a broader buying and supply chain context, summarizing a range of topics including technology enablement fundamentals, the rise of project-based and SOW initiatives, globalization trends, supply risk and how some companies are building support for programs that require "selling up" internally. Following this introduction, Jason will share a number of insights and scenarios about where he believes the market will go next and how a range of technologies – from analytics to social networking – will play distinct and important roles in the services procurement organization of tomorrow.
