Without a doubt, data analytics is quickly changing the way all companies do business, from the way companies build marketing campaigns to how they stock inventory. Sourcing and procurement departments are no exception. While previously reactive, procurement departments are now beginning to see the proactive benefits data provides by automating processes that once required countless man hours.
Speaking on the application of data in the world of procurement to La Salle University’s School of Business Students is Source One's Data Scientist, James Patounas. This Wednesday, October 28th, Patounas will be a featured speaker for the university's Business Systems and Analytics Club. Reinforcing the club's mission, the Data Scientist will share his real-world examples of data in action, supporting spend management solutions for strategic sourcing and procurement organizations. Patounas is a regular when it comes to sharing his procurement data know-how, frequently writing blogs exploring the capabilities data provides.
