Apttus: Beyond CLM – A P2P Provider About To Seriously Challenge Ariba, Coupa, Ivalua and Others [PRO]


Apttus. We admit the name does not exactly roll off the procurement tongue – at least not yet – but the Spend Matters research team believes that the firm is the most important new procurement solution company you’ll be hearing about this year. This Spend Matters PRO brief, based on our recent attendance at the Apttus 3-day customer event in San Francisco, explores context and background on the entrance of the P2P provider into the procurement solutions market. Among other areas, we explore why practitioners, consultants and competitors should be paying close attention to Apttus, not the least reason of which is that the solution is built and architected on the Force.com platform, which is now referred to as the “Salesforce1 Platform,” and which provides instant compatibility out of the box into hundreds of other applications including CRM, marketing automation, customer support and other solutions. Buy side meets sell side? Yes, you got it (a dream that Ariba and SAP would love to achieve, but have only taken small steps to enabling, despite starting out light-years ahead of other vendors in the space).
