Q2 2019 SolutionMap Release Notes: Sourcing, Spend & Procurement Analytics, Supplier Relationship Management & Risk, Contract Lifecycle Management and Strategic Procurement Technology Suites [SolutionMap Sourcing]

This Spend Matters SolutionMap Insider research note provides insight into the Q2 2019 SolutionMap release for Sourcing, Spend & Procurement Analytics, Supplier Relationship Management & Risk, Contract Lifecycle Management, and Strategic Procurement Technologies Suite SolutionMap areas, reviewing the process we follow and highlighting what has changed since the last release.

Within the individual areas covered in this brief, the following providers have been added to the Q2 2019 release:

  • LevaData is a new participant in the Sourcing and Spend & Procurement Analytics SolutionMap categories.
  • Procurence is a new participant in the Supplier Relationship Management & Risk SolutionMap category.

Additionally, the following providers have updated their RFIs and received updated scoring following the submission and demonstration of new and updated capabilities based on production releases of their platform. (Non-GA capabilities are not considered in SolutionMap scoring.)

In Source-to-Pay:

  • Coupa, Determine, GEP, Ivalua, and SynerTrade

In standalone Sourcing:

  • Allocation, Bonfire, EC Sourcing, Market Dojo, Scanmarket, and Wax Digital

In standalone Spend & Procurement Analytics:

  • AnyData Solutions, Sievo, Simfoni, Spendency, and SpendHQ

In standalone Supplier Relationship Management and Risk:

  • Allocation, APEX Analytix, ConnXus, HICX, and State of Flux

In standalone Contract Lifecycle Management:

  • Agiloft, Coupa-Exari, Icertis, and SirionLabs

In addition, 95 new or refreshed customer references (and 175 individual map references) were added in the Strategic Procurement Technology areas for Q2 2019.

The following providers did not update their scoring and, as a result, had their scores adjusted based on a common shift factor (that preserves positional integrity relative to peers) and any platform updates, or lack thereof, that the analysts have received since the last time the RFIs were filled out. Nearly all the providers requested a short-term delay because of the intensive nature of the expanded RFI (with nearly 800 requirements for Source-to-Pay), but we expect most of them to participate in upcoming 2019 Q3 or Q4 releases.

In Source-to-Pay:

  • SAP Ariba, Jaggaer (Indirect, Advantage, and Direct), and Zycus

In standalone Sourcing:

  • Keelvar and Scout RFP

In standalone Spend & Procurement Analytics:

  • Opera BIQ

In standalone Supplier Relationship Management and Risk:

  • Aravo and Sourcemap

This SolutionMap Insider research note provides insight into the nature of the expanded RFI, methodology and additional changes in the Q2 2019 SolutionMap release.
