When NPI launched its business in 2003, AWS was three years away from existence, Salesforce.com revenues were a mere $50.9 million (compared to $10.5 billion today), and Yahoo was a popular search engine.
Enterprise IT purchasing also looked very different. Mind you, it was difficult and vendor pricing was all over the map. But nothing compared to what we see today. Over the last decade-and-a-half, IT buying has become exponentially more complex. There are more vendors, more purchases per annum, more spend, more stakeholders and – ultimately – more on the line for the business.
NPI has helped our clients navigate the IT sourcing challenges presented by these changes, and our services have evolved in lockstep. Today, NPI’s services span six practice areas and we’ve recently updated our website to reflect our broad service portfolio:
