SAP Ariba Sourcing

SAP Ariba Sourcing solution integrates patented “request for” (RFX) technology, process workflows, commodity intelligence, and supplier discovery, resulting in a flexible, comprehensive sourcing solution that enables fast, sustainable, bottom-line results. When the SAP Ariba Sourcing module is deployed as part of our integrated strategic sourcing suite, which encompasses spend visibility, strategic sourcing, contract management, and supply base management, you can realize even greater value.

SAP Ariba Sourcing makes use of spend data captured by any spend analysis tool, so you can work with business units to identify opportunities to rationalize the supply base, negotiate lower pricing, or implement new requirements. Identified opportunities can then be prioritized and created within the software as new sourcing events or projects, complete with key stakeholders, project tasks, and milestones. The output of each event or project is a short-term, midterm, or long-term agreement that can span one or more deliverables and can be sourced from one or more quality suppliers.
