Spend Matters Almanac is (almost) here! Plus A.T. Kearney’s ROSMA, a network update, and The Rockin’ Ramrods

The launch of the Spend Matters Almanac (our new online provider directory) is so close that we're actually seriously mentioning it on the blog! Announcing the Spend Matters 50/50: Providers to Watch and Providers to Know

Quoth Jason Busch on both the Spend Matters Almanac and the Top 50/50 lists:

"We are asked daily by Spend Matters readers for information about which solution providers they should be aware of and some basic knowledge of their capabilities – and there has been no standard guide covering procurement and supply chain providers to point them toward as reference.

Curated by Spend Matters editors and analysts, Spend Matters Almanac covers software firms, outsourcers, data providers, research providers, consultants, membership organizations, and similar firms that serve the procurement and supply chain market. All entries (including basic “free” listings) are moderated for content and approved prior to inclusion. The 50 to Know are all members of the old procurement guard, and, simply put, they’re companies you should have some basic information on at all times. 

The 50 to Watch are some of the more interesting up-and-coming players we’ve seen that we think our readers and members should get familiar with – and some are certainly more established than others."

New (old) music of the week: I've been digging the mid-60s Beach Boys vibe of Boston's Rockin' Ramrods. This song makes me think that it might someday be warm enough to go to the beach again.
