Transform data into intelligence so you can deliver more value

With every procurement and supply chain transaction, on computers and mobile devices, in the cloud and on the Internet, your business generates more data than you know what to do with. Much of it lives on systems that don’t talk to each other, both inside and outside the four walls of your organization, generated by suppliers, government agencies, social sources, and other organizations.

SAP Ariba Intelligent Spend Management can help you understand and use that data, transforming it from information into intelligence, and intelligence into value. The kind of value that comes from helping your organization quickly adapt to changing needs, drive change, and adopt new business models. Let’s work together to bring more visibility, focus, and agility to your spend management processes, and strengthen your ability to:

  • Anticipate and respond to rapidly changing customer needs
  • Mitigate threats to your supply chain, operations, and reputation
  • Automate and streamline your source-to-pay process so you can do more with less
  • Collaborate efficiently and effectively across internal teams and with business partners
  • Accelerate innovation toward new business models and revenue streams

To achieve these goals, you need the right infrastructure and systems, not clunky user experiences or disconnected teams and data. SAP Ariba has the technology and expertise to help you put intelligence to work.

SAP Ariba equips organizations to expand beyond cost-focused procurement and supply chain metrics to more strategic business priorities. Across the source-to-pay process, we connect data from virtually any source to create more insightful experiences and processes. That way, you can tackle changing priorities and get more work done.

And, we’re investing in technologies like AI, machine learning, and blockchain to enhance our solutions and infuse even more problem-solving intelligence from source to pay.
