It’s not enough anymore to simply know that a business case exists for your e-procurement or source-to-pay transformation project. You need to arm yourself with an understanding of what solutions are available because there is a ‘best-fit’ for your organization - and unless your processes are generic, you won’t succeed with a one-size-fits all solution.
Make sure you know what’s out there, especially when looking for new technologies to drive automation in your process. This report by Gartner*) will provide you with insights into all the latest tech which is being considered, tested, piloted and embedded in various solutions on the market today.
While it may be impossible these days to future-proof anything as big as an enterprise e-procurement solution, you really just need to be ahead of competition and to do that, you need to be informed.
