Today I am kicking off the Magic Quadrant for Sourcing Application Suites update process – and calling for vendors that should be considered for inclusion. (I have not decided on inclusion criteria yet – but definitely plan to cover a wider set of vendors than last year’s report, which featured Ariba, BravoSolution, CGI, Global eProcure, Emptoris, Oracle, Quadrem, SAP and SynerTrade. The reason is that I see sourcing technology becoming more of a commodity- and locally delivered services to help with strategy, process, and vendor identification playing an important role in an organization’s success with these tools.) Anyone I left out?
