For many enterprises, the number one procurement performance metric is still cost savings. And without a doubt, it will remain key. But far too many procurement teams give themselves short shrift on a wider range of meaningful metrics and thereby fail to demonstrate their true impact on the enterprise. Hear the best way to measure and report procurement savings and learn what changes procurement teams must make in the savings reporting methodology to reflect their true performance and contribution to their company’s bottom line.
The trade-off between suppliers’ payments terms and working capital is an important cash-management and business decision which must be aligned with the new regulation (UK Duty to report). In the light of the new regulations, a business’ optimal payment strategy should also take in consideration the reputational and disclosure aspects of their payment terms. Hear how these considerations can be optimally balanced and how excellence in supply chain finance can be achieved.

The CIO Event is a truly global event with international perspectives on current IT trends. These include the usual Social, Mobile, Cloud, Security, 'Internet of Things', Big Data/Analytics, Etc. It's somewhat unique in its format in that it provides keynotes, one-to-one meetings, workshops and open areas for discussions. Its strength also lies in the networking of its attendees both at the events and between times through social media environments such as LinkedIn.- Mal Postings - Global CTO - Quintiles
