20 Most Promising Oil & Gas Technology Solution Providers

The Oil and Gas industry plays an indispensible role in facilitating business across various verticals with timely and adequate resources. Volatile market conditions, economic downswing, and increasing costs inadvertently persist as imminent challenges in the oil and gas sector. In recent times, there is a surging incidence of oil and gas companies deploying technology and software solutions such as cloud computing, virtualization applications, database services and tools for intelligent repair and monitoring. Furthermore, these solutions not just cater to the transient needs of the organizations but, also help them adhere to government regulations, reduce pollution and wastage that damage environment and human health, conserve resources and operational expenditure. However, many CIOs find it extremely challenging to navigate into the complex and fragmented oil and gas landscape when looking for service providers to aid them with consulting, implementation, and support.

Molina Healthcare's new centralized procurement operation saves time, money

Accounts payable (AP) and the cloud may hold the secret to providing quality healthcare.

Coupa Inventory: Expanding the P2P Value Proposition and Surrounding Core Financials

Earlier this spring, Coupa provided a briefing and demonstrated a version of its latest inventory module to Spend Matters. Coupa sells its inventory module as an add-on to core procurement but separately from accounts payable, contracts management, and other suite components.
