  1. Noah Eisner:

    While people can debate the list and who may have been left off, I can say that I’m excited about the focus, innovation, and market momentum in the space. Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think we could have filled a single 50 company list back when a few naive guys together to start Coupa.

    Congratulations to all the vendors who continue to plug away, the Spend Matters team who have been a voice in this space for so long…and definitely to the procurement professionals who are finding more and more ways to deliver value to their business!

  2. Thomas Kase:

    Pierre,

    Another round of furrowed brows over, congrats!

    BTW, a nitpick, for consistency’s sake, shouldn’t that be IQN/Beeline?

    Thomas

    1. Nick Heinzmann:

      Hi Thomas,

      Starting in April, Beeline and IQN began operating solely under the Beeline brand.

      1. Thomas Kase:

        Aha, didn’t know that, that went fast. Thx

  3. Jason Busch:

    Henry: MarketDojo is an excellent firm. It is one in a crowded market segment, though. For those wishing to sort through how it fits in, this is a link to our PRO research covering MarketDojo. Thank you for your comment.

  4. Jason Busch:

    Two quick points:

    1) For those that may be wondering about “To Be Determined” on the ‘Watch” list, this is not a mistake! We left one “Watch” list spot open … to be unveiled at a (near) future date by the Spend Matters research team.

    2) It always comes up so I’ll tackle the question here: the 50/50 list for 2017 represents precisely 50% Azul Partners / Spend Matters clients and 50% non clients at the time of selection. No, we did not intend it to work out that way, or anyway, for that matter!

  5. Henry Rackley:

    I could be called biased here but missing out Market Dojo on either list is a travesty!

    Market Dojo as a sourcing and auction platform is changing the market and leading the charge in the on-demand model.
