AnyData Solutions Devrim Pinar/AdobeStock

So far in this Spend Matters PRO series exploring 2018 e-procurement trends, we have covered both procurement organization (demand) and technology provider (supply) trends we are seeing in the market. Today we kick off the third and final installment of this series by examining three additional provider trends: the new, resurgent role of B2B e-marketplaces such as Amazon Business; new and varying approaches to chasing tail spend, including e-marketplace models; and the early rise of embedded artificial intelligence (AI) in an e-procurement context. Finally, we conclude this three-part brief with our 2018 market sizing for e-procurement and a list of trends we see driving demand in the market. Don’t forget to read Part 1 (2018 customer e-procurement trends) and Part 2 (2018 provider trends — M&A and B2B/P2P intersections), as well.
