Undoubtedly the most promising event of the week, Pierre Mitchell, Chief Research Officer at Spend Matters, and Len Prokopets, Managing Director at KPMG, will take on the red hot topic of AI. Between the terminology (cognitive, machine learning, chatbots, RPA) and how we are supposed to change our processes and approach to leverage the capabilities of AI, there should be plenty to discuss. And if you’re looking for another reason to attend, I’m constantly reading articles on the sales side about how they are learning to love AI as well.
April 6th, 11am ET
In an interesting extension of the Spend Matters webinar topic, HfS Research, Blue Prism (an RPA software provider) and an as yet unnamed executive from a “leading buyside company” will share how progressive organizations are not only leveraging the capabilities of digital technology, but building entire ecosystems.
