An aggregation of small, practical improvements across your B2B eCommerce program can lead to significant improvement to processes, and measurable business benefits. Marco de Vries, Sr Director of Product Marketing for OpenText Business Network will lead this session to explore how the ‘Marginal Gains’ approach can be applied across a B2B integration environment. This approach will be demonstrated to bring significant savings across a supply operation–with specific ROI examples and use cases. He will also share the results of a study conducted by Gartner/SCM World and OpenText that documents how to assess your current level of B2B eCommerce ‘maturity’, what steps you can take to develop your program, and how to chart a path to ongoing improvement.
