SAP Spend Connect Live Roundup: What's New About Spend Management in SAP?

Last week, SAP Spend Connect, the premier spend management user conference, took place in Dallas, Texas. The event included a lot of networking, in-person sessions, and speakers on the main stage.

While 74% of SAP USA customers are looking for solutions to go through the disruptions, SAP announced a range of innovations that will help organizations address current economic challenges. Our blog post outlined the major ones mentioned at the SAP Spend Connect LIVE event.


New capabilities of SAP Ariba Solutions

Driving innovations in procurement solutions, SAP previewed new capabilities that will help organizations ensure a more personalized and sustainable buying experience. SAP improved its guided buying capability and discussed the new "buying 360" capabilities. They cover different strategic types of spend and will be available in 2023.

Category management is the central area of focus

As category management is integral to a procurement strategy, organizations need to digitize it. According to recent research, 40% of respondents select category management as a top priority. SAP announced that the solution for category management is planned to be available by the end of this year, with expanded availability throughout 2023.

Simplified procurement management for customers with multiple ERPs

Customers using several ERP environments can now manage all the processes within one centralized system. SAP Central Procurement (private cloud edition) is now available for customers. No matter what ERP server is in the backend, the procurement team will leverage centralized control over procurement transactions.
