Intelligent Procurement Requires Intelligent Procurement Solutions: Defining Artificial Intelligence Capabilities to Expect from Software Providers (Part 1) [PRO]

In this Spend Matters PRO analysis, we’ll cover a few dozen of our AI-related functional requirements extracted from more than 400 requirements (and growing) in our current SolutionMap database, which we use to evaluate many dozens of providers. If you’re a practitioner, you can infuse these requirements into your ongoing provider selections and into your own in-house capability development (e.g., within an analytics CoE).

Of course, if you use the capabilities from our “palette” of requirements, you also can augment your own solution provider intelligence and create your own custom solution maps (based on data science rather than just analyst “magic”) to massively shrink your RFI cycle times and grow your provider intelligence to drive a much more effective and strategic provider selection process.

If you’re a procurement technology solutions provider who has gone through our SolutionMaps, you’re likely painfully aware of this level of detail that we get to, and we’d like to again thank you for your trip through our proverbial MRI. But if you haven’t “gotten on the map,” you’ll hopefully still find this very useful to benchmark against. (Contact us if you want to benchmark yourself against the “full monty” of requirements in your area — if you’re part of any modules within the source-to-pay market, or now services procurement, too.)
