Coupa 2013 Predictions: How the Cloud Can Help Businesses Increase ROI in the New Year

People buy software for one of two reasons: to make money or to save money. If it doesn't do one of the two, they won't spend the money.

 

When cloud technology entered the scene, companies saved money because of faster deployments (faster time-to-value), and ultimately increased return-on-investment (ROI). 

 

As we move into 2013, we'll see even more people embracing the cloud within their own companies as the technology continues to become more mainstream.

 

Adopting the cloud - or more specifically, a 100 percent true cloud solution - as part of a company's tech strategy can serve as a serious game-changer.

A Spend Matters Sponsor Shake-Up!

Spend Matters rarely has much movement in the sponsor areas. We have limited the number of sponsors at any one time since the site was launched eight years ago this month. Yet our sponsors tend to stick around for a while, which has created quite a bit of demand for those who want to come in (especially on the Associate level, which is usually the entry point for most). But we recently had a few changes (as you may have noticed). D&B, a long-time Spend Matters Lead Sponsor, has moved over to our sister-site MetalMiner as a Lead Sponsor there (focused on supplier risk and supplier compliance) and has joined Spend Matters as a MetalMiner Affiliate Sponsor. More on this soon, including some exciting new offerings from D&B that we'll share in our introductory welcome post this week.
