We held our second Accelerating Technology Procurement (ATP) Executive Summit at the Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia on November 17th. This event's purpose is to provide top level executive speakers to talk about innovative ways to accelerate technology procurement.
At this event we had 25-minute speaking sessions with a lunch mid-day followed by a happy hour networking event right there at the hotel, creating a collaborative event where top-level executives met and discussed their ideas on indirect procurement and innovation in the industry.
During the Event
At the event attendees got to hear from several top-level executives who provided up to date insight on topics such as spend analytics, trends in spend, IT cost optimization strategies, reducing TCO, digital transformation, and AI deployment in the service industry. Some of the speakers were suppliers of indirect technology. They provided insight into new licensing structures, pricing and features. Having this information is crucial to being able to give your company a competitive edge against others in the market.
