Whether you are at the CPO level thinking about your ERP and other procurement solution strategy, or “merely” reporting your travel expenses through Concur, few have not heard about SAP’s outsized bid to acquire Concur. Approximately $8.3B in the largest acquisition of a SaaS provider to date. We invite our Plus and PRO members to join this week's Ask the Expert webinar on Friday, October 3 from 11-11:30am Central to hear what Spend Matters’ Jason Busch and Thomas Kase have to say about the deal.
They’ll look at a list of factors:
- Market positioning
- How the solution fits in with the broader SAP offering – particularly their SaaS or Cloud offering, considering how Concur will join SuccessFactors, Ariba, and Fieldglass among SAP’s more substantial acquisitions
- What SAP clients might gain (as well as lose) from the proposed deal
- Impact on Concur clients
- Concur network partner considerations
- Broader T&E space implications
It’s an exciting list of topics to cover – and as Pierre Mitchell, Chief Research Officer, wrote recently: SAP needs to be careful not crush the little T&E goose that laid the $8B golden egg – join us on Friday to learn more.
