Noteworthy (Developments in the e-Sourcing Space)

Rearden Commerce announces a new relationship with American Express Business Travel that will resell the Rearden Commerce platform under the name American Express Intelligent Online Marketplace or AXIOM.

Emptoris launches a new version of its new integrated suite this week with enhanced spend analytics and spend management capability. Check back here on Sourcing Innovation later this week. I’d also keep an eye on Spend Matters which has had some great coverage of Emptoris in the past. In the meantime, here’s the official press release.

Iasta just launched it’s brand new website in preparation for its forthcoming SmartSource 7.0 release which will integrate with their new and improved SmartAnalytics and be supported by their new Spend Velocity programs. Also, hidden betwixt the pages is their announcement of their new annual Iasta reSource user group conference next May. With the Indy 500 only two weeks after the conference, there are sure to be some great lead up events going on in town at that time. I’ll be covering the new Iasta release here on Sourcing Innovation in a week or two, so keep an eye out.
