Spend Matters Almanac: Supplier Networks & Platforms

Sometimes referred to as a “business network”, eMarketplace, or other terms: a supplier network or supplier eMarketplace is a B2B destination site where buyers and suppliers can find and do transactional and collaborative business with each other. These networks offer integration services for B2B connectivity, but also simple supply chain collaboration, supply chain/trade finance, master data integration, content/knowledge insights derived from the network, and other value-added services. We define a “supply chain [information] network” (similar to a supplier network, but with much deeper supply chain planning, execution, and collaboration functionality) in the Supply Chain section of the almanac. Increasingly, such networks are transforming from destination sites to providers of a Procurement/SCM “Platform as a Service (PaaS)” that allows them (and an ecosystem of partners) to create their own hybrid/private electronic supplier networks rather than the simpler public cloud-oriented networks that currently exist.
