Everything changes. We are in a period of significant shifts in companies—even entire industries—demonstrated in rankings, like the Fortune Global 500. For the last century, these periods
of volatility have been driven by a combination of technological change and capital expansion.1
There is obvious competition between direct, traditional market segments, but digital disruption also opens up the ability to compete and gain revenue in new areas. For example, a movie

Innovation requires more than a slick customer user interface (UI). There has to be a foundation of technology, processes, and culture that allow an organization to be flexible, to build on its
existing knowledge, and to incorporate new ideas.
At a strategic level, today’s software is expected to deliver on a multitude of new and different

"Spend Management is the planning, process, and system of managing business dollars to positively affect the production of products and services. Spend management usualy includes processes relating to procurement, supply chain management, and outsourcing. Optimal spend management relies on the ability to understand and control company spend through automation tools and analytics.
Steps to Strategic Spend Management
All CFOs are concerned with how their company is spending its money. However, this is of particular concern for CFOs of small to mid-size businesses who need to manage their cash flow effectively to survive.
To survive and maintain a competitive advantage, companies need to be strategic in their spend management and identify ways to invest wisely to meet current demands and fuel growth for the future. Expense and invoice management can no longer be viewed as simply a cost center.
