Supply Chain Management sourcing market attracts favorable interest from buyers and service providers alike
The dynamic Supply Chain Management (SCM) sourcing market is highly fragmented, highly competitive and growing, according to Everest Group. In examining the capabilities and market success of the 11 leaders in the SCM sourcing industry, Everest Group reports a growing interest in SCM as buyers seem more open to outsourcing while providers are willing to make investments to expand their suite of services.
