Gartner recognises SAP Ariba as strategic sourcing leader
SAP Ariba today has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Strategic Sourcing Application Suites.
In May, SAP Ariba was also recognised in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Procure-to-Pay Suites alongside SAP Fieldglass.
The Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Strategic Sourcing Application Suites evaluated the strategic sourcing application suite solutions of 10 vendors. SAP Ariba was positioned in the Leaders quadrant based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
“Sourcing professionals today are looking for simple, intelligent solutions that allow them to manage their spend in a connected and conscious way,” said Darren Koch, Chief Product Officer, SAP Ariba.
“We are pleased to be recognized as a Leader in both the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Strategic Sourcing Application Suites and Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Procure-to-Pay Suites, as we feel it validates our holistic approach to spend management and our commitment to delivering innovations that make procurement work the way it should.”
