THE CLOUD CHALLENGE
IT and business leaders encounter difficulty in managing their software spend, due to a lack of visibility into what is being used in the cloud. This is made especially difficult when the Disruption Gap between IT and the business units is increasingly driven by unknown and unmanaged purchase of SaaS subscriptions by business units and individual employees.
