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.
