Analyzing Infor, Coupa’s 2015 Acquisitions with Customer Recommendations: M&A Summary and Analysis (Part 2) [PRO]

Business man and meeting table background

With all of the merger and acquisition activity that’s taken place so far in 2015, procurement and accounts payable (A/P) organizations — let alone tech vendors, consultants, bankers, market advisors and investors — have a tough job keeping up with what it all means on a technology and source-to-pay (S2P) suite basis. Perhaps even more challenging is cutting through the vendor, investor relations and marketing rigmarole surrounding these deals. Trust us, our research team has worn the marketing, corporate development, procurement, consultant and IT hats and the level of clarity in vendor explanations of many of these recent deals often leaves us scratching our heads too. It’s reached a fever pitch of jargon. This Spend Matters PRO analysis explores the following transactions: Infor and GT Nexus, and Coupa and InvoiceSmash. A prior installment of this research brief provided general suite M&A market analysis and specific analysis and commentary on the Oildex and ADP and Tradeshift and Merchantry transactions. A final installment of this series will cover Perfect and Hubwoo, Selectica and b-pack and BravoSolution and Verian deals.
