DSC Guide for Procurement and ITAM Managers

DSC Guide for Procurement and ITAM Managers

A seamless, integrated set of systems and activities that span across the request, purchase, manage and renewal phases of software and cloud lifecycle. That’s the one wish that Procurement and ITAM Managers have in common. Having an efficient software digital supply chain would make the lives of these professionals easier, saving their organisations significant costs and making their operations more efficient.

IT and Procurement professionals face real challenges in their roles when it comes to managing software requests and transactions, a lack of insight and clear visibility makes it difficult for everyone involved to make informed decisions, implement efficient processes and improve the experience of end users.

The most common challenge we see in businesses is decentralized purchasing of software and cloud services without clear governance over transactions, followed closely by the overwhelming number of software vendors a company has to administer and manage. How does this look like for you? Do you manage to keep track of all the software purchases in your organizations? Are you sure you are getting the best deals? Are you renewing only the software you need? If you answered ‘no’ to any of these, you are not alone. But you are at the right place.

Common DSC Challenges

Centralizing Purchasing

Often organizations don’t have a centralized consolidated view of all software spend across their business.

Managing Multiple Vendors

Many organizations are overwhelmed by the number of software vendors they have to manage, and it becomes increasingly difficult to manage multiple vendor relationships to ensure they are getting the best deals.

Visibility and Control of Tail-End Spend

The majority of businesses focus on strategic spend with larger vendors, having limited resources available to manage the rest of software spend from smaller vendors.

Managing License Entitlements

Many organizations don’t have the mechanisms in place to auto-capture and normalize license entitlements.

Managing Wasted & Unauthorized Software Spend

Lack of visibility into software purchases and renewals, poor internal processes and fragmented procurement systems can lead to wasted and unauthorized software spend.
