Why the Time for Cognitive Procurement is Now!

Access to accurate information on how AI can transform procurement, more so from a practitioner's point of view, is not easy and not readily available. A lot of content out there is also often misleading and quite often unreliable.

Of course, there are a lot of good research papers and technical documents on AI, but those are not necessarily written with the procurement community in mind.

At Zycus, we are practitioners and wanted to bring out the actual real-life learning that we have gained through 100s of AI-specific engagements with clients.

Cognitive Procurement Book

This was the genesis of the book on Cognitive Procurement. We have aptly titled it "Why the Time for Cognitive Procurement is Now."

It is a must-read book for procurement & finance practitioners that will take you down the AI road with many toolkits. It is also an interesting page-turner with anecdotes and real-life stories written to make it an enjoyable read.

The book will be a valuable and fun read, as much for the Chief Procurement Officer managing billions of dollars of global spending and a young professional starting off their career as a procurement analyst.

“This is the first piece of literature that I have read on AI that answers my questions on what can the future look like, what are the steps to get there, what considerations do I need to consider, what are the impacts on the team and overall business and how can this fit into the broader business strategy.”
