IT Enterprise Software Acquisition Training

Understanding the IT landscape of software systems, programming and tools, applications, and databases is a challenge for sourcing professionals who don’t have formal backgrounds in Information Technology.  As such, your procurement organization may struggle to understand all the industry jargon, the positions of software publishers and/or resellers, the implications of various terms in End User License Agreements (EULAs), and all the cost drivers and considerations for significant IT investments.

Through customized training sessions, Source One’s IT procurement experts can equip your personnel with the knowledge and forum to develop these foundational skills.
