Spend Matters PRO content brings you the deepest and widest variety of analyst coverage of vendors in the procurement technology space, and this monthly post will recap why the vendors and issues covered in January are important.

Each month, our analyst team provides vendor-specific profiles and overviews. Using our SolutionMap benchmark data from doing demos and scoring of more than 65 solution RFIs, we also perform comparative analyses of vendors against each other in our head-to-head columns. We also focus on just one vendor versus the SolutionMap average scores in a “What Makes It Great” post. And some of our analyst coverage explores the latest thought-leadership topics about procurement and the technology that serves it.

In this January roundup, we review our Vendor Analysis coverage of four solutions (Acada, Promena, HICX and Simfoni). And we analyzed this month’s hot M&A activity — including the Simfoni-EC Sourcing deal, the Esker-Market Dojo deal, the SAP-Icertis deal and the SAP-Taulia deal. Our January analyst coverage also included head-to-head SolutionMap comparisons on Coupa vs GEP for direct sourcing, Coupa vs Ivalua for invoice-to-pay, and  Ivalua vs GEP for direct sourcing.

And, new for 2022, we also provide a forward look of what you can expect on Spend Matters PRO in February. That includes continued coverage of the latest research series on 34 procurement services providers, including a directory and PDF profiles of the consulting firms and other providers.

Now let’s pull back the curtain on why this coverage is important.
