Procurement 2025: is digital transformation driving more effective procurement?

How can procurement deliver more value, faster, by developing and executing a digital strategy? How can it ensure this value is sustainable – not just short term? What steps should it take in the digital age to achieve greater efficiencies?

About the survey

The survey examines how 225 senior procurement professionals from across the globe view the digital procurement landscape and its impact on their organisation. Key findings include:

  • Companies believe that a key benefit of technology is allowing more data-driven decision-making in procurement
  • The biggest barriers to harnessing the power of technology is a lack of talent and low levels of supplier support in ensuring new technology and solutions work
  • Rather than investing in new technologies, companies want to make better use of existing technologies
