Key Findings
  • Source-to-settle (S2S) suites lack maturity, so buying organizations have to look for best-in-class functionality and innovation for some modules.
  • Freelancer management systems (FMSs) are often embraced at the department level or lower, which results in fragmented use of various FMSs within organizations.
  • Emerging technologies and increasing availability of multiple supplier data sources are fueling interest in better supplier management and collaboration tools.
  • Growing partner ecosystems are making it easier for organizations to take a connected, multiple-solution approach to sourcing and procurement automation.
