- Central European Time (CET)

GlaxoSmithKline & apsolut: A SAP Ariba Journey to Procurement and Far Beyond
8th June, 12 pm CEST
It all started as a journey to a new procurement suite that was focused on making buying easier for the end user. With the support of apsolut, GSK delivered on all targets and also came to the realization that Ariba is far more than a procurement tool. It is a cloud infrastructure that can even steer sales operations through reverse auctions.
