Pierre Mitchell on the Spend Matters 2017 50 to Watch, 50 to Know Lists

Several weeks ago, the Spend Matters Analyst Team released the fourth annual 50 to Watch, 50 to Know lists. Each year, the analysts spend much of Q1 in a spirited back-and-forth debate over which technology solution providers merit a spot on the year's lists. This year was no different:

"There are a few key trends in this year's 50/50 list, but perhaps the overall theme is that if you are not growing and innovating, you are dying," said Pierre Mitchell, chief research officer, Spend Matters. "Many slots have opened up on the 50 to Watch list because some of those providers have crossed the proverbial chasm to our 50 to Know list. On the flip side, some providers have dropped off the list because they have not been growing or innovating."

In fact, several companies graduated from the Watch to Know list this year, including EcoVadis, PRGX (including Lavante) and Sievo.

If you want your organization to be considered for next year's list, be sure your Almanac listing is live and updated. For practitioners, the Spend Matters Almanac is a trusted resource to discover the solution providers that are best suited to address the needs of your procurement or supply chain project.
