abc_blocks.jpgWe are on a mission to explore the variety of products and services that one can source using Ariba Discovery. Last week, we tested the scenario of starting a new business and found suppliers in every category we explored.


This week, we will explore the ABCs of Ariba Discovery. With the help of some creative colleagues, we created a list of products or services starting with each letter of the alphabet. So, armed with this extremely eclectic list, we will begin a scavenger hunt of sorts, to discover suppliers that are able to fulfill each “order”, from A to Z.
