As cloud adoption surged, employees began making software and infrastructure purchases with a simple click, resulting in sprawl and leaving IT departments in the shadows. Shadow IT, mergers, acquisitions, and other scenarios has contributed to the complexity of redundant, outdated, and unused software. According to a study by Productiv, 56% of applications were left unmanaged by IT.

In this session, experts from Forrester and ServiceNow explore strategies for combating application sprawl, identified common data challenges, and learned effective ways to manage application portfolios, even amidst shifts in the business landscape.
