SaaS Management: Managing Spend and Risk around Software as a Service
Software as a Service (SaaS) represents a growing share of the public cloud services market, with spending expected to top $130B in 2021! This dramatic growth has meant most organizations’ IT Procurement and Asset Management teams are under increasing pressure to manage the associated SaaS consumption and contract negotiations – resulting in up to 30% or more in wasted expenditure.
With the right combination of technology and processes, ITAM and Procurement teams can have a holistic view of their organizations’ SaaS Management, and with that information at hand, they can manage subscriptions, negotiate contracts and ensure waste is mitigated. By combining the right balance of technology and expertise, we help to centralize and simplify your SaaS contracts and spend.
