Understanding Data and Risk in Decision Making with Blake Tablak

By Kelly Barner | June 19, 2024

The volume of data available at our fingertips can sometimes create the illusion that any information is accessible, that decision making is improved, and that failure is avoidable. Once we get past that illusion and accept the reality of even data-driven decision making, we can finally be on the road to success.

In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes Blake Tablak. Blake is the CEO of Trax Technologies, a company that provides transportation spend management visibility for freight audit and payment solutions. With data at the heart of everything procurement is looking to achieve today, his perspectives on data and risk are valuable and highly applicable.


In this interview, Blake shares his perspective on data and the very human conditions that have to be in place for companies to deploy data successfully:

  • How much data is “a lot” today
  • The current state of data confidence
  • Where “doing nothing” falls on the business risk continuum
