How do you roll out a program to move thousands of suppliers, located around the world, on to a business network for transaction processing?  Or enable business process transformation that extends to thousands of users across the globe?


These are among the questions that will be answered in two insightful breakout sessions next week at SAP Ariba Live.


On Tuesday, March 15, 10:45am-noon, the session Around the World with Supplier Enablement will feature presentations from John Wiley & Sons, Teva Pharmaceutical, and Citrix Systems that discuss their different approaches to enabling e-commerce with suppliers around the world. In the case of Teva Pharmaceutical, the goal is to reach more than 10,000 suppliers in 20 countries to automate their procure-to-pay operations. Then, on Wednesday, March 16, 3pm-4pm, you can hear how Adobe and Verizon are managing successful digital transformations in the Change Management in Accounts Payable session.


These presentations are part of the Pay track of breakout sessions for finance professionals, offering ideas and insights on how you can transform payables and thrive in a digital economy. Other sessions in this track will address breakthroughs in electronic payment with AribaPay, and how you can Buy Right-Pay Right — The Vital Role of Payables in Procure-to-Pay Transformation and Working Capital Excellence.


For procurement and finance professionals looking to better align their business processes and help propel their businesses forward, this is the event for you. Hope you can join us at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
