Services Procurement Insights 2019: The Big Reveal

One of the most powerful forces in business today is also one of the least understood.

SAP Fieldglass and Oxford Economics worked together to investigate the growing impact of services providers—the “invisible” workforce comprised of firms that supply other organizations with people under a Statement of Work.
