The e-procurement market is set to undergo substantial technology and solution transformation between 2016 and 2018. In the first installment of this research brief, we covered the first five trends Spend Matters forecasts will drive the near-term evolution of the e-procurement market: the rise of industry and vertical specific scenarios; closer integration with services procurement and e-procurement; the emergence of a handful of “platform vendors”; a mirroring of the automotive OEM and supplier ecosystem and specialization among providers; and the rise of paid pilots. As we conclude our technology and mega trend analysis, we will share the next five trends in this research brief. Additional forthcoming research briefs in our e-procurement market outlook series will include a Spend Matters market forecast and sizing analysis, market growth and adoption scenarios and a look at the evolving competitive landscape and vendor shortlists.
