The use of cloud services in organisations is growing steadily and the transformation of traditional on-premise delivery to SaaS (Software as a Service) is progressing rapidly. Correspondingly, the costs are rising continuously in this area. In addition, the use of cloud services requires an update of your governance structure and internal IT processes. We support you with practical experience and provide best-practice approaches for optimisation.
Insufficient transparency about deployed SaaS products often poses major challenges for many IT departments in terms of costs and compliance:
- 30 percent of all SaaS licenses are not or only inefficiently used. (Gartner)
- 15 times more SaaS applications are used than IT is aware of (Shadow IT). (Cisco)
- 89 percent of former employees were not correctly withdrawn from SaaS access rights. (Osterman)
At the same time, up to 30 percent of SaaS spendings could be reduced if unused subscriptions were identified and cancelled.
