Exploring SRM Trends: Technology, Tiering and Penetration Rates

We’re excited to continue our exploration of SRM trends based on our interview with State of Flux’s Alan Day. Alan and his team are currently gathering data for the next iteration of the annual survey, hoping to gather as much data from both buy-side and sell-side participants (companies can click the previous links to participate, get a copy of the results and benchmark their SRM capabilities). We encourage you to participate!
