This week is Big Idea Week on the Art of Procurement - a mini series of shorter interviews with procurement thought leaders ahead of their participation in the Procurious Big Idea Summit.
Today's guest is Barry Ward, Senior Procurement Brand Manager at IBM. Barry and I discuss how cognitive technologies have the potential to transform procurement delivery models. Barry shares how IBM is using technology to drive automation across their internal procurement group by levering their IBM Watson platform. We talk about where this technology is on the maturity curve, and the impact this is likely to have on the procurement skill sets of the future.
