September 13 event explores how digital technologies are transforming the practice of supplier management

Company Release - 9/7/2017 2:54 PM ET

STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, is hosting an ISG Smartalks™ webinar on Wednesday, September 13, to discuss how automation and cognitive analytics are transforming the practice of supplier management.

During the hour-long webinar, "Managing Suppliers in the Digital Age: From Complexity to Cohesion," thought leaders from ISG and OGE Energy Corp. will share insights on how digital technologies and as-a-service platforms are taking supplier management to the next level by:

  • Automating processes to improve speed and efficiency
  • Using predictive analytics to improve service delivery
  • Scaling easily to fit increasingly complex sourcing environments

"Enterprise clients expect more from their supplier relationships than ever before – everything from continuous innovation to improved quality and efficiency to lower costs," says Dave Tienstra, ISG partner, Digital Supplier Management, and a presenter during next week's webinar. "Enterprises are also faced with the challenge of managing more complex supplier ecosystems as they work with multiple providers, require more end-to-end services, and contend with shorter, more fluid and dynamic provider relationships. The need to bring cohesion to this complexity is growing in importance – both for enterprises and their supplier partners."

The September 13 webinar will cover the evolution of sourcing and supplier management, review the supplier management lifecycle, and reveal new operating models and tools for digitizing the process of supplier management.

Tim Hendrickson, director, IT Governance and Performance Management, at OGE Energy Corp., will share his experiences working with ISG to digitize and automate supplier management at the parent company of Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OG&E), an electric and gas utility.

The live webinar will take place at 1 pm U.S. Eastern time on September 13. Participants are encouraged to register in advance for the event. A replay will be posted following the webinar for those unable to attend the live session.
