  5. 5. The History of Spend Analytics
  6. 6. Spend Analytics 1.0 -- 1980s to 1990s What created 1.0? • Rise of modern Strategic Sourcing techniques & computerized business processes • Suddenly, procurement professionals had a lot of data Examples of 1.0 solutions: • VisiCalc, Lotus 1-2-3, Microsoft Excel Why didn’t 1.0 solutions work? • Spend analysis was an arduous process • Time consuming, expensive, and difficult to repeat
  7. 7. Spend Analytics 2.0 -- 1990s to 2010s What created 2.0? • Strategic Sourcing seeping from the Fortune 500 into the next layer of companies • Technology companies going through a revolution of their own Examples of 2.0 solutions: • ERP systems, P2P systems Why didn’t 2.0 solutions work? • Overreliance on technology; no human element • Solutions built by software executives; not procurement
  8. 8. • Categorization is often inaccurate • Categories do not map to the supply market • Off-shore vendor categorization teams do not understand the local market • Data often requires additional manipulation before it is usable • Tools for spend visibility are often:  Clunky  Don’t highlight the insights procurement pros need  Spreadsheets Why do 2.0 solutions fail?
