//My Comment:

It was a great day with a lot of interesting information about the large changes the new technology enables. 

Here is a lot to learn from each other. It's possible to create your own Marketing places, use standard like Ariba, use SRM or SRM like functionality in S/4HANA or improve ERP systems with RPA and UI's. Typical for these process is the amount of people involved to run it end-2-end and the huge value the process represents.

Thank you EY Skye who lend us facilities and spend alla servings

Use the link above and listen to the presentations. Unfortunatly you will not be able to listen to the very interesting discussion Bernt Bakken arranged for sharing on how far the different companies are in improving and renewing the procurement process.
