In case you missed it, here is a quick synopsis of a few deals that happened in the past few weeks:

September 24 – SciQuest goes public

September 27 – HighJump Software agrees to acquire TrueCommerce

September 27 – Madison Dearborn Partners agrees to acquire stake in Fieldglass

Mergers and acquisitions and initial public offerings within a certain vertical are often part of a trend that ripples on for some time. With three big events in a span of four days, it is looking like the beginning of a trend here.

So, the question is: which supply chain technology vendor is next?
