Data requirements for category management

Access to relevant purchasing data is critical for successful category management or purchasing integration overall. In a category management environment where the main objective is to identify and transform commonalities in purchasing requirements across business units and geographies, it is critical that there is basic data supporting those operations. All spend should subsequently be able to be aggregated across all business units and geographies. Purchasing spend data should be analyzed by means of a spend cube: per supplier, per category, per internal budget holder. Best-in-class companies are even able to present data based on what suppliers
offer.
