Why a Procurement Platform Stack
“The traditional single technology provider model failed to deliver the promised benefits. In turn, a vast explosion of innovative startups appeared on the scene. It became quickly apparent that we needed a way to organize the chaos, hence the need for a platform approach. Good data will be the critical ingredient to bind the next-gen procurement platform together.” Dr. Elouise Epstein – Kearney
