Delivering the innovation and capabilities you need to transform procurement

For the seventh consecutive time, SAP has been named a Leader with the SAP Ariba and SAP Fieldglass integrated solutions in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Procure-to-Pay Suites. For this report, Gartner evaluated 16 procure-to-pay software vendors based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute.

SAP received the highest score for the Services Focused Use Case and the second-highest scores for the Indirect Procurement Focused Use Case and Complex Environment Focused Use Case in the 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Procure-to-Pay Suites. SAP was the only vendor with scores in the highest three across all use cases.
