With today's stark economic outlook, it is more critical than ever for organizations of all sizes to do everything they can to streamline their operations for greater efficiency and bottom line savings. For a long time this meant deploying on-premise spend management solutions that only large companies could afford. But now, says solution provider Ariba, small and midsize organizations are finding that they can get in on the spend management game by leveraging on-demand solution with a lower cost of entry and more flexible deployment options. Does that mean that large organizations need not look at on-demand applications? Not at all. In fact, Ariba has seen large enterprises such as PPG Industries signing on to use on-demand applications as well.
