NEW! The Great Debate: Will Supplier Networks Thrive, Implode, or Evolve?

This paper is a collection of short essays from four panelists who recently participated in the Spend Matters webinar The Great Debate: Will Supplier Networks Thrive, Implode, or Evolve? On the Spend Matters side, Pierre Mitchell leads with Semantics Matter: Separating Network/Platform Church and Application State, and Jason Busch contributes The Importance of Developing a Point of View (POV): Networks, Platforms and Applications.

We then take it to the provider and practitioner side, where Tradeshift CEO Christian Laang gives his opinions in Solving Modern Business’ Connectivity Problem. Jay Merenda, a global procurement leader for a large pharma company, ends with Moving Past the Transaction: Upping the Network Value Game.

The paper concludes with commentary from Spend Matters PRO, Five Specialist Vendors You Must Talk to in 2013: Tradeshift, where we give a comprehensive look at Tradeshift’s capabilities considering the perspectives of customers and competitors alike.
