My previous blog entry about procurement commandments in a down economy also made me think about whether there are different priorities for the chief

emptoris pune  companies like Ariba and Emptoris doing that well these days. However, they are selling to the high-end market, against SAP and Oracle enterprise resource planning (ERP) installations. It is interesting that the SRM moniker, which really revolved around the supplier collaboration theme, has lately lost some of its popularity (possibly after SAP and Oracle commandeered the term within their respective SAP SRM  and Oracle PeopleSoft SRM   suites). Ariba came out in the early 2000s with the “ spend Read More

SAP and Ariba Synergy
SAP acquired spend management and business commerce solution provider Ariba in 2012 for strategic reasons, and has since been investing in Ariba with a longer

emptoris pune  TMS, or Ariba or Emptoris for sourcing—is procured and managed separately from Rimini Street. Customers can still procure additional modules from their primary  mega vendors if they like. I asked Rimini Street’s executive whether in 5 or 10 years, when the customer decides that it is time to go for SOA and Web x.0, they will have to leave Rimini and go back to SAP or Oracle. Will that be like an entirely new implementation, or will they even have to pay penalties to these vendors to get reinstated Read More

What’s With Ariba Selling Its Sourcing Services Team to Accenture?
My recent series about the merger of JDA Software and i2 Technologies raised the issue whether any independent software vendor (ISV) can at the same time be

emptoris pune  software company such as Emptoris , BravoSolution , or Iasta (and not necessarily Ariba automatically). This move might also be good for Ariba’s  competitors because, as best-of-breed providers, they can now work with those companies that want a highly differentiated, tailorable application  and are no longer captive to Ariba based on their sourcing services relationship. What About Other Accenture Alliances? Since I recently attended Emptoris’ Empower 2010 user conference and saw Accenture as a Read More
