Late last year, I had a great conversation with a number of folks over at Triple Tree, a boutique investment bank that is making significant investments in the Spend Management market. In fact, I'd wager that their current Spend Management research goes beyond any other financial firm (sell-side or otherwise) that I've seen in recent years, filling a huge void in Wall Street's coverage of the sector. I also like the fact that they're scrappy, representing both small and mid-size firms in deal activity. You can read excerpts from their latest report on the Spend Management market on their site. Also, I recently learned that Triple Tree will be hosting a webcast titled "Demystifying Spend Management: How Can Solutions Significantly Impact Bottom-Line Results?" on February 2nd. You can register for the event online.
