General Session

Celebrating the customers who #MakeProcurementAwesome

This is the year of customer success and transformation.

Prepare to be wowed and inspired as you gather with your colleagues for two mornings of general session at SAP Ariba Live. You’ll be treated to compelling stories from fellow buyers and suppliers who share our vision of making procurement awesome.

  • SAP CEO Bill McDermott, who will share his own transformation story and explore how we can all do more to create trust and dignity in the marketplace
  • Stories from cutting-edge companies that are redefining supply chain norms through innovative, pioneering use of Blockchain, artificial intelligence, and machine learning
  • A leading company's story about how they have transformed their approach to trading partner collaboration
  • An exploration of transparency in the supply chain and how buyers are now fully able to manage risk, be it supply, social, or environmental risk
