Technological development and progress in digitization permeate all areas of life, of course not excluding companies and their activities and individual business processes. In this paper, we focus on the area of corporate procurement as one of the key areas for fulfilling corporate goals and its transformation in the age of digitalization. The paper aims to identify the changing function of procurement and possible opportunities of digitalization for the development of procurement and its role in organization. As the results shown, procurement is a value-creating process that is changed by the digitalization. It is moving from a traditional focus on cost reduction to value creation through dynamic cooperation and building relationships with business partners. Procurement is beginning to play an increasingly strategic role in organizations. It becomes a partner to support business efficiency and the creation of new business models.
