SA Local Government Microsoft Affiliation (SALGMA)

With digital transformation influencing every aspect of the way organisations operate and interact with suppliers and customers, procurement managers continue to be under pressure to deliver cost optimisation. They are also tasked with increasing the efficiency and scope of technology procurement, and to deliver on key digital projects that align closely with the organisation’s digital transformation strategy.

When it comes to technology procurement, are you buying too much or too little or finding it hard to manage staff changes? Do you find managing Microsoft’s changes in rules or pricing a time consuming and confusing task?

 A new approach is needed to help you overcome these challenges.
