The Advanced Sourcing and Negotiation Benchmark Report


The wave of e-sourcing that began a decade ago resembled a “crash diet:” it had an immediate and noticeable effect on enterprises. Today’s challenge is to develop new programs that can sustain the benefits of e-sourcing and “keep the weight off.” Find out how employing advanced sourcing strategies can help you positively impact product development cycles, build stronger supplier relationships, and make better decisions.

BI and BPM: It’s Not as Blurry as You Think


There seems to be a blurry line between business intelligence (BI) and business performance management (BPM) applications. Some software vendors offer solutions that actually incorporate BPM and BI within the same application, which makes it harder to distinguish between these two software solutions. The following are some—certainly not all—key differentiators between BI and/or BPM functionality

define negotiated tender  we will try to define some key differentiators to help you distinguish between BI and BPM. 1. Which Comes First (BI or BPM)? In general, the main difference between BI and BPM is that BI contains all the framework and/or infrastructure to gather big volumes of data and analyze it by using specific tools like OLAP cubes, data and text mining, specific analytics etc., and delivering this information using advanced reports, dashboards, or any other advanced visualization tools (charts, maps, gauges, etc.).

Business Services and Consulting


There are several ways to define the business services and consulting industry, but they all make a clear distinction between business services (services a client cannot or does not want to perform in-house) and consulting (services that will improve a client's activities). Of course, these two different types of activities can be combined into one, depending on the client's requirements.

However, the line between the two types is sometimes blurry. For instance, a company may provide shipping logistics services for a client (or for the client's clients), in the sense that it handles the shipping of goods for the client; but it can also provide consulting services (or extend its own logistics services) to help the client improve the transportation system already in place.
