For Chief Procurement Officers ("CPOs") and other supply management leaders, collaboration has taken on many new and innovative forms over the years, causing these executives to leverage new (and, in some cases, existing) processes, relationships, and technologies to enhance compliance, decrease risk, and increase savings. One such business process, contract management, has been reborn with digital, automated features that can shift the way procurement teams collaborate, mitigate risk, drive performance, and realize greater savings for the enterprise.
Cloud migration has exploded in popularity since General Electric’s (GE’s) flashy keynote at Amazon Web Service’s (AWS’s) re:Invent in September 2015. GE claims to be migrating all workloads not containing secret information. Enterprises are revisiting public cloud and exploring whether existing or systems-of-record applications have a place in that world. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals on this path should avoid a one-size-fits-all approach to outsourcing and migration plans, opting instead for an app-by-app assessment.

Globalization has presented business leaders with numerous opportunities and challenges to become more competitive and innovative and to drive more value. These opportunities and challenges seem to increase in number and complexity every year whether it is the challenge of scaling limited human and technological resources, sourcing from low-cost countries halfway around the world, or going to market with the latest product innovations.
Today's supply chains typically include multiple partners, with services and sourcing managed across several organizations and across the world. Companies are increasing their use of third-party suppliers in the execution of key strategic imperatives. This leads to complexity in the supply chain and increased scale and intensity of operations, all of which contribute to global warming.
As new models of manufacturing and retail become prevalent, new sets of challenges await adopters: challenges in supplier selection, sourcing, and planning disconnects, and lack of visibility into inventory availability. Leading manufacturers and retailers are embracing new technologies to source and collaborate with suppliers of direct materials.
Procurement organizations are moving in substantial numbers to implement integrated technology suites in areas like
source-to-contract and purchase-to-pay. A new generation of technology has made it possible for these technologies
to move to the cloud, simplifying maintenance and administration. A recent Hackett Group study analyzed the use
of e-sourcing suites to uncover trends, benefits and drawbacks to unifying these processes in one solution. For
organizations already invested in optimizing sourcing execution efforts, the arguments for moving to an integrated
suite are compelling.
