2014 procurement predictions, security in the cloud, and what’s next for Ariba/SAP

Happy New Year from the very, very, very frigid Spend Matters Chicago headquarters (though I believe we're recovering now!)

If you register now, you can probably make it to today's webinar presented by Pierre Mitchell (10-11am Central; that's 4-5pm UK time): Spend Matters Procurement Predictions for 2014. If you're eager to escape work early and head to the pub, please feel free to register anyway if you'd like to watch the recording on your own time!

We have another webinar coming up next Tuesday, too: Cloud Procurement Bill of Rights: The Right to Savings, Security, and Selection. Pierre Mitchell has written an entire post about what he's going to talk about with metaphorical rhetoric invoking 70's progressive rock band Rush's song Jacob's Ladder(How can you miss this??)

Here are the specific lyrics:

The clouds prepare for battle, in the dark and brooding silence.
Bruised and sullen storm clouds, have the light of day obscured.
Looming low and ominous, in twilight premature
Thunderheads are rumbling in a distant overture... 

Register here!

In other news, many of you may have noticed that there have been some intriguing personnel changes at SAP/Ariba:

Here's a nice round-up from Jason Busch of where Spend Matters has been, and where we're going in 2014.

And finally, Thomas Kase talks e-Signatures and the EU:

Have a wonderful weekend, and we hope to see you at today or Tuesday's webinars!
