No sooner had I this past week completed a 2-Part guest post for the Buyers Meeting Point blog regarding the recent news that SciQuest had acquired CombineNet, when I received word from our newest sponsor Xchanging that they have acquired MarketMaker 4 (MM4), a Chicago-based provider of online sourcing and negotiation solutions.  Of course this is where the similarity with the respective acquisitions both starts and ends.

Joining me today to talk about Xchanging's acquistion of Chicago-based MarketMaker4 is Ed Cross, who is the company's Executive Director of Procurement.  Also joining us today is Dave Bowen, Founder and CEO of MM4.
