Course Overview

Procurement Analytics is the practice of applying quantitative and analytical approaches to extract actionable insights from a huge pool of procurement data to increase value and enhance operations.

Why data analytics is important in procurement?

The process of procurement analytics is performed by gathering procurement data from a variety of sources, classifying it according to standard or user-defined characteristics, and presenting it in a visual format that decision-makers can understand.

What is the procurement process?

Several key decision-making processes fail to deliver the expected results during procurement analytics. This is due to the lack of tools and systems to do these analytics. Many businesses cannot gather and evaluate this data. Procurement Analytics’ value extends far beyond spending to all aspects of the Source-to-Pay (S2P) process. Businesses are taking notice of the breadth of data available to support business decisions at all levels. Procurement analytics can help you manage risk and evaluate the performance of your vendors.
