Zycus Webinar to Reveal Hackett’s 2015 Key Issues for Procurement

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA January 27, 2015- Zycus a leading source-to-pay procurement solutions provider, announced today that it will host a special one-hour live webinar The Hackett Group 2015 Procurement Key Issues Study on Wednesday, January 28 at 11-am AEDT and 1-pm NZDT. The event will reveal closely held results from The Hackett Group’s proprietary 2015 Key Issues Study, including:

  • The overall business context for procurement in 2015 – what companies will emphasize strategically at the enterprise level.
  • What will replace ‘expanding procurement influence’ as the top priority among CPOs in 2015.
  • CPOs’ assessments of procurement readiness to address key priorities.
  • Capabilities procurement leaders will focus on building in the coming year.
  • Trends in budgeting for procurement resources and operations.
  • Plans for outsourcing, offshoring and resourcing value-added business processes.
  • How procurement will shift its emphasis in terms of technology acquisition and deployment.

Patrick Connaughton, Senior Research Director for The Hackett Group will present the research findings and will be available to respond to audience questions and to discuss the study findings with Zycus’ Corporate Development VP Richard Waugh.

“We have been noticing for some time that corporations seem to be shifting strategic focus as they struggle to adapt to big market disruptors such as the rapid and huge global expansion of mobile device and app usage, proliferating supply risks, intensifying regulatory pressures, the advent of Big Data analytics, and social media’s effects on brand strategy and management,”

The Hackett Group’s 2015 Key Issues Study begins to capture and quantify how these big global market shifts are translating into new directions and technology-investment strategies for procurement. This presentation is a must-see for anyone looking to elevate the procurement function and its capacities for delivering corporate and business performance value.”
