Over the next five years, there will be a seismic shift in the enterprise software space. Before the decade is over, a majority of companies will need to migrate their on-premises ERP software to the cloud as older versions of the applications will cease to be supported. Within a narrow timeframe, the demand from companies needing conversion services will surge and create capacity constraints for their respective ERP software providers and the third-party system integrators tasked with facilitating this massive undertaking. This perfect storm of having to complete a multi-year project within a narrow conversion window means that implementation services will be stretched thin and at a premium.

In the Australian city of Kwinana, nets at several drainage pipes in the area have been installed. You see, Kwinana has a major issue: garbage carried via storm runoff into waterways and ultimately polluting the environment.
By installing the nets, Kwinana has vastly cut down on the amount of garbage deposited in the rivers and lakes. In a mere six months, Kwinana has stopped 815 pounds (370 kilograms) of waste from entering the waterways. Not only is this better for the environment, it saves money - the cost to clean up garbage goes up 4x once it is in the waterways as opposed to catching it in these nets.

The Treasury and Working Capital Survival Guide
The world has changed rapidly in the last 30 days.

Management teams must evaluate working capital needs and utilize working capital as a key resource to sustain ongoing business activities.
Ask any master woodworker what the most important skill is in woodworking. The answer won’t have anything to do with saws, chisels, or hand planes. It won’t be about design, planning, or building. The most important skill is fixing their mistakes. Master woodworkers will saw outside their line, they’ll have an errant hit with a chisel, they’ll ding the corner of their piece. They all make mistakes. Great woodworkers, however, know how to fix their mistakes.
Your organization has made the decision to invest in a Source-to-Pay (S2P) technology and you have been asked to lead the selection project. The selection of a technology is typically a large investment, and you will be establishing a provider partnership that will last many years – it is critical that you select the right technology and partner. Recognizing this, you sit down to start thinking about your approach and quickly realize that selecting a S2P technology is a complex project that requires you to understand the needs of stakeholders throughout your organization along with the current functionality and capabilities of the S2P technology providers in the marketplace. How should you go about pulling together all of the information you need to effectively go to market? What questions do you need to ask of providers? Do you have a sufficient understanding of the technology to ask the right questions? How do you evaluate and compare the technologies?
Congratulations! Your company has made the decision to streamline and simplify the way they do business by investing in a source-to-pay (S2P) software solution.
