Welcome to the October 2018 edition of Spend Matters’ monthly feature, “The Contingent Workforce and Services (CW/S) Insider’s Hot List,” available to Plus and PRO subscribers. For those new to the Hot List, each edition covers the prior month’s important and sometimes just plain interesting technology and innovation developments within the CW/S space. Over the last several months, this space has seen both significant change and inertia co-exist, yet the change is not slowing down — quite the contrary.

The September Hot List covered a broad range of developments, ranging from the Ernst & Young acquisition of U.K.-based alternative legal services provider (ALSP) Riverview Law, to the partnership of Jaggaer with Science Exchange, a marketplace for outsourced R&D, all the way to some of the latest blockchain-based work intermediation intermediation platforms, such as Moonlighting. In the meantime, other developments continued percolate around the innovative edge of the defined CW/S space. Altogether these developments reflect an industry that is undergoing widespread transformation.
