More businesses are shunning integrated systems in favor of best-of-breed platforms.
Organizations no longer need to choose between deploying standalone systems that perform one function very well (e.g. invoice processing) and integrated, single-vendor systems that offer modules for multiple P2P functions, with varying degrees of functionality. Web standards, open application programming interfaces (APIs), technologies such as XML, and cloud-based applications make it easier to deploy a P2P platform with best-of-breed components from different technology vendors.
