Software as a Service (SaaS) is leaking into organizations at an alarming rate. The extent of the adoption is difficult to estimate using conventional methods, as SaaS leaves no software footprint.
SaaS can also be purchased beyond the effective range of IT's procurement radar as its low initial price point is frequently expensed through departmental discretionary budgets.
These trends have the potential to create significant challenges for organizations, including:
- Long term expense obligations
- Duplication of function
- Lack of audit visibility
- Decreasing business agility due to poor standardization and interoperability
