Re: Live Chat 01/15: CPOs Re-Shape Their Business Roles

Steve, One problem I see with software-driven procurement is that the software is so complex it paces the buyer. The typical answer from most SaaS companies is to add even more bells and whistles! Doing simple things takes forever, and complex things need a manual to help figure out how to get it into the system...and woe betide you if you make an error!

Software vendors need to look at the real world they are creating and be a bit more humble!
