Please help clarify what is P2P experience in project management? Please explain it using an example to illustrate or better still, a case study. It came up as a requirement for a business analyst position but I'm really confused.

p2p has a lot of different meanings out of context, but I believe this must refer to procure-to-pay.  In the software industry, it is part of the procurement process.  Systems like this allow visibility and control of transactions throughout the transaction lifecycle, so it is typically found when an organization wants to centralize its procurement function.

p2p systems link certain functions back to the finance department such as supply management, purchase orders, and receiving.  To implement a p2p system, you need to have a good understanding of what the current processes are as there will have to be some changes to insert finance into the loop.

In the context of project management, P2P means Procure to Pay. It's not really an official role in PM. (it's not defined in any PM reference)
