Release note, SolutionMap Spring 2021: Source-to-Pay [SolutionMap]

This Spend Matters SolutionMap Insider release note provides insight into the SolutionMap Spring 2021 release for the Source-to-Pay suite category, reviewing the process that we followed for this update.

The Spring 2021 SolutionMap resulted from a “condensed” update cycle containing only customer score updates, spurred by new or expiring references. Analyst scores were carried forward from the previous Fall 2020 rankings. This condensed cycle allowed time for our analysts to simplify and streamline a new RFI for the next cycle, Fall 2021 SolutionMap. The addition of new vendors and existing vendors’ expansion into new categories were also pushed to Fall 2021 to coincide with the rollout of the revamped RFI.

The providers in the Spring 2021 Source-to-Pay SolutionMap include Coupa, Corcentric Platform (formerly Determine), GEP, Ivalua, Jaggaer ONE (Direct and Standard), SAP Ariba and Zycus.

All of the S2P providers were required to participate in SolutionMap for each underlying module, as well. These individual areas of S2P include Sourcing, Spend and Procurement Analytics, Supplier Relationship Management & Risk, Contract Lifecycle Management, E-Procurement and Invoice-to-Pay. All of these providers are also included in the individual Strategic Procurement Technologies (SPT) and Procure-to-Pay (P2P) suite views.

The Source-to-Pay customer data set is composed of a subset of the 941 individual organization references included in the overall SolutionMap scoring as of Spring 2021*. Customer references from Q1 and Q2 2018 expired after 2½ years of use.

*Customers using more than one module that a vendor provides can opt to fill out a single survey (e.g., a customer using two modules for P2P and four modules for SPT would need to fill out only one survey).
