This morning, I quickly read through AMR Research's take on Emptoris' Intigma acquisition (Subscription required).
I think Lora did a solid job of analyzing the deal. Certainly, one of the major enhancements to Emptoris that Laura cites is Intigma's direct material spend analysis capability, which Emptoris was previously lacking.
This deal certainly makes Emptoris a Spend Management player to watch. The vendor's continued growth and acquisitive nature will continue to help share the overall Spend Management vendor lansdscape.
