When talking to procurement practitioners about the most complex category under management, many times, “IT” is the answer. Not only is IT one of the largest categories of indirect spend, it also permeates across all other indirect categories. Adding to the complexity is that while CIOs and IT Managers would prefer to just do their job, and not have to worry about winning bids, they are still reluctant to give up control to non-IT people. Throw complicated licensing models into the mix, and IT sourcing can easily become a headache.
