    Rise of Market Intelligence

    Ken Miklos Master

      Jason Busch of the Spend Matters blog recently observed that companies are increasingly looking to third party content for market intelligence insights.  You can read the full post here: http://www.spendmatters.com/index.cfm/2010/5/11/Observations-From-Conference-Season--Five-Reasons-for-the-Rise-of-Market-and-Commodity-Intelligenc.

       

      Given that Ariba Spend Visibility includes market intelligence components for sourcing savings identifications and prioritization, we're interested in your thoughts.

      • Is the information Jason talks about important to you as a sourcing professional? 
      • Do you leverage any outsourced market intelligence information from third parties today in your strategic sourcing processes - Ariba or otherwise?
      • What type(s) of data would be of interest to you? (price indeces, peer benchmarks, BPO results, etc.)
