Scope and Challenges

Commerce is a connected activity. And the solutions used to drive it to need to be too. Leading companies around the world recognize this. And during the fourth quarter ended December 31, they embraced solutions from SAP Ariba and SAP to fuel a unified process for managing all their spend and trading relationships from end-to-end on a single, integrated platform.

Outcome and Implications

In the U.S., The Coca-Cola Company purchased SAP Ariba as a part of their larger transition to SAP S/4HANA to achieve greater control of their procurement spend and move toward their goals of simplification, standardization, and automation.


“The strategic partnership announced between Microsoft and SAP is an extremely important development for the Coca-Cola System. The value of aligned engineering, sales, and delivery between these two strategic partners will allow our system to accelerate our digital agenda. This is a very positive and exciting development for us." - said Barry Simpson, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at The Coca-Cola Company.

“Procurement today is a totally different game. And SAP Ariba is committed to helping companies win it by providing an intelligent platform they can use to manage their costs and risk in a simple, coordinated way that beyond savings and process efficiencies, delivers broad business value.” -said Barry Padgett, President, SAP Ariba.
