Lead Sourcing and Vendor Management to the Core of Digital Business.


As an IT sourcing or vendor management leader, your role is vital to the success of digital business. You are the critical link between your organization’s internal capabilities and the external digital business ecosystem. You are key to the development and deployment of strategies to acquire and manage IT services to drive successful digital business outcomes. Under your leadership, Sourcing and Vendor Management can position itself as a trusted business advisor and a high-performance business partner to drive sourcing to the core of digital business transformation.

Identify opportunities for aggressive, focused cost optimization for increased business performance, while preparing for the digital future.



Manage an increasingly complex ecosystem of vendors with new performance metrics to create the right behaviors, reduce risk and achieve the expected business outcomes.
