4 Considerations Convert Upstream (Sourcing, Contracts)
More conversion activity with our Upstream customers Ariba LIVE 2011 showcased several upstream conversions Convert Downstream (Buyer, Invoice) Steady conversion activity with our Downstream customers Typically see this as part of a broader initiative within the organization (i.e. not “just an upgrade”) Both conversions discussed today are P2P conversions © 2012 Ariba, Inc.

8 Where We Started Ariba Buyer implemented across the Bank for Purchasing. Only capturing approx 10% of commodity spend on POs through Ariba Buyer. Not capturing complex spend (e.g. software and professional services, marketing, etc.). A/P was a paper-based process. No end-user visibility into PO status (e.g. ability to see remaining funds on PO or payments against PO). Limited access to financial information to support sourcing projects. © 2012 Ariba, Inc. All rights reserved.

9 Major Milestones and “Future State”
Develop a Strategic Sourcing Organization to support the Bank. Capture and actively source spend areas across the Bank to leverage spend and increase price performance. Design an integrated Source-to-Pay program to increase control and provide detailed commitment and spend data at an end-user level. Increase use of POs to capture spend. Automate the Accounts Payable process. Ability to proactively manage our vendor expenses at the user level. © 2012 Ariba, Inc. All rights reserved.

10 Building a Business Case Why Upgrade (or) Convert to On Demand?
Do Nothing Pro: Keep the functionality and technical interfaces we have today. Con: Maintenance increased due to Retired Product Support Program; UB concerns on support of older version over time; Limited functionality to capture complex spend on POs. Upgrade current system Pro: Keep similar feel and functionality as what we have today and get benefits included in each upgrade. Con: No additional functionality to capture complex spend on POs; Behind-the-firewall software upgrades and enhancements will be less frequent; Continued maintenance and infrastructure costs. Replace Buyer with On Demand Pro: Capture significantly more spend on POs through Ariba; Greatly increased functionality; Automates more business processes; Directionally same cost as annual maintenance; Eliminate internal infrastructure costs; Ariba upgrades and enhances more frequently included in the annual cost. Con: May impact how we interface technically with Buyer today; Bank no longer “owns” the software. © 2012 Ariba, Inc. All rights reserved.

11 Why Ariba On Demand Bank selected Ariba’s On Demand (SaaS) model.
Strong return on investment, plus greatly increased functionality. Ease of implementation, maintenance and ongoing upgrades. Ariba is ERP-agnostic. Improves business process by tying together Purchasing and Payables and automating the functions. Ability to leverage best practice and market leading processes. No additional infrastructure needed, all hosted by Ariba. Reduces existing infrastructure and expense by removing Ariba Buyer and other ad hoc tools. Access to Ariba Discovery for real time market based pricing knowledge. Ariba On Demand made it cost effective to add upstream modules (e.g. Sourcing and SIPM). © 2012 Ariba, Inc.

12 Project Highlights Converted downstream from CD to On Demand and implemented the Sourcing and SIPM module Deployment Ariba estimated approximately an 18- to 20-week deployment. Actual implementation nine months. Capture of spend on PO Increase spend on PO, with a goal of 50-70% Scalable, best practice, Purchase-to-Pay program As the Bank grows, easier to scale and expand Ariba’s automated platform vs. the Bank’s Ariba Buyer platform. © 2012 Ariba, Inc.

14 Change Management Keys to Success
Change Management is a key to success. Implementation of an overall Communication Plan, including Webex and personal training for super-users; multiple communications to all end users; ad hoc training; etc. Required more resources than suggested. Ariba guidelines severely underestimated the number of hours/resources to implement the system. Recommend strong joint planning sessions with Ariba prior to signing the agreement to understand current environment and future state to streamline implementation. Develop a both a business and technical plan. If moving from behind the firewall to an on-demand system, ensure IT completely understands the impact of the move to their role. Aggressively move spend into the system and have senior management support. “Stealthing” in the spend is not effective as it is wasting the value of the investment. © 2012 Ariba, Inc.

18 Procurement at CBA Regional, centre-led operational model
$5 bn non salary and wages annual spend Only capturing approximately $1.3bn of spend on POs through Ariba today Upgraded to Ariba version 8 in June 2008 Poor analytical and reporting capability Procurement Transformation Program underway Project to migrate to Ariba On Demand started February 2012 © 2012 Ariba, Inc.

19 Drivers for Change Lack of ability to leverage spend and source effectively Inability to manage expenses, contracts and supplier at a user level Current platform will be unsupported and incompatible with other systems Incomplete data and therefore visibility of opportunities Poor user experience Lack of visibility of spend and compliance to preferred suppliers Inability to enforce policy How procurement transformation can drive sustainable benefits 1 2 3 Maverick buying and lack of contract management quickly erode value ( 10 - 50%) Contractual compliance and continuous improvement Break through performance improvement Time Demand and Sourcing (5 15%) Supplier collaboration (2 5%) Efficiency benefits Strategic sourcing Compliance and supplier relationship management Contract award Sourcing capability P2P processes and systems Procurement operating model Sustainable benefits at risk without systems, streamlined process controls Typical procurement benchmark.

24 Don’t Miss the General Session Panel Today at 5:15 p.m.
Sustainable Supply Chains through Vested Trading Partner Relationships Long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships between buyers and suppliers are increasingly being described as vested relationships, defined by a shared vision, agreed-upon desired outcomes, transparency, trust, and win-win. Developing such trading partner relationships pays dividends in many ways, particularly when your goal is ensuring a sustainable supply chain. Join Tim Minahan, chief marketing officer for Ariba, as he explores the concept with Kate Vitasek, author of Vested Outsourcing, and Tim McBride, general manager for global finance shared services at Microsoft. Mr. Minahan and his guests will engage with Ariba customers who will talk about such investments at their companies, and the impact they have on their comprehensive sustainability programs. 5:15 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. – Florentine III and IV © 2012 Ariba, Inc.
