Some IT experience either as a client or a supplier is desirable.
Most companies rely on external suppliers to deliver IT services and solutions. With digitisation, new technologies and IT complexity, companies will become increasingly dependent on external suppliers. Outsourcing in financial services has become a norm, with banks and financial institutions often signing large, long-term deals with IT providers. Those suppliers can either be a source of endless frustration, strategic business enablers or anything in-between. The industry data suggests that the expectations from outsourcing and suppliers are frequently not met. Getting the most out of suppliers and building win-win relationships can make all the difference. Companies like Apple and Nike have shown how well-managed supplier ecosystems are integral to success and competitive advantage. There are success stories and best practices that organisations can learn from and take advantage of. This course is designed with that in mind.
