Synopsis and overview of the session

The growth of data sourced directly from the supply chain supplemented with open source and subscription data intelligence services creates great opportunity to proactively identify, source, manage and benchmark the supply chain. With this exciting opportunity comes increasing complexity for companies efficiently and effectively utilise this data.

Focus Network, in partnership with Avetta, will bring WHS Leaders from across Australia to take a look at how configurable aggregation can manage specific issues identified by data feeds with stakeholder specific workflows to create dynamic purchasing control through the ERP.

We will conclude with a review of key benefits and challenges companies have experienced when using multisource data feeds in procurement.
