Let me tell you a true story: in the span of one week, a single Coupa customer created 2600 requisitions resulting in 3000 purchase orders. But not one of these 2600 requisitions were initiated from within Coupa.

Why Usability Needs to be on IT’s Checklist

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and yet our fearless leader, Rob Bernshteyn, found time to have two very interesting, and different, conversations with well-respected technology folks, NetworkWorld editor-in-chief John Dix, and IT Business Edge blogger (and long-time IT scribe) Mike Vizard.

Today’s young professionals were born mouse-in-hand, turning to sites like Amazon and eBay to shop and Facebook to connect with friends. But it’s not just themillennials – we’ve reached a point where our grandparents, for whom their early memories of technology were purely industrial, are now embracing social networking and online search.
