Real spend management begins with insightful spend analysis

Get objective analysis of your supplier spending

SAP Ariba gathers your spend data from wherever it lives, classifies it according to company and industry standards, and then enriches it with Dun & Bradstreet market intelligence to deliver insightful analysis of your business buying behavior.

Spend analysis delivers the spend visibility you need to make better, faster, and more confident buying decisions and negotiate with more clout. That’s because you’ll know:

  • How much you’re spending among families of suppliers
  • Where savings leak, prices vary, and purchasing overlaps
  • Compare your spend to that of your industry peers

You can also see which suppliers can help you achieve diversity and sustainability and more.
