As new financial pressures present themselves, organizations need to take immediate action to reduce spending, find efficiencies and reposition their business for transformation. Software and cloud-based services represent 51% of IT budget allocations in 2021, making these some of the most impactful areas to evaluate.
For most IT leaders, quickly getting a handle on where cost is coming from is difficult as licensing vehicles have become complex, and they lack the ability to perform a timely, methodical assessment of all software and SaaS usage/costs. In addition, they must be cautious about making changes or adjustments to ensure ongoing compliance with vendor contracts and avoid potential audit impacts.
Competing priorities, rising complexity and limited access to relevant data stalls progress and makes actions to rationalize application spend almost impossible.
