The dynamics of the business environment have changed dramatically and IT has to deal with constrained markets and intense competition to secure a cost effective win-win contract with a vendor.

Many traditional IT managers view relationship building as a sales or marketing responsibility. Vendor Management/Supplier Management is not simply negotiating the lowest price possible. Vendor management is constantly working with your vendors to come to agreements that will mutually benefit both companies. Benefits include lower costs, higher quality, better forecasting and less tension between the two entities that result in a win-win relationship.
