Title: Transforming Software Asset Management in the Age of SaaS
Synopsis: SaaS will become 75% of all software in use globally within the next few years. Already, the average organization has more than 600 SaaS applications in use – most of which are unknown to IT – and is adding 10 applications every month.
With this rapid growth, SaaS Management is now a top priority as organizations seek to control costs, reduce risk and increase visibility of SaaS applications. IT Asset and Software Asset Managers (ITAM and SAM) must rapidly expand and adapt their skills and processes to manage SaaS.
Using real-life examples and best practices, this session will show you how to
- Discover all SaaS applications in your organization
- Uncover Shadow IT to reduce risk
- Reduce spend by eliminating duplicate subscriptions and redundant applications
- Optimize utilization of SaaS applications
- Update rules of governance to include the SaaS lifecycle

Why you should attend
Businesses across the world are in a period of accelerating technological change, driven by remote work and Cloud-first strategies. As ITAM professionals we need to adapt to this new technical environment, improving processes, and reviewing our tools and services. Do we have everything we need to manage our estates? Should we try to do everything in-house or should we outsource? What should I focus on right now, and what should I plan for? What will ITAM be like in the mid 2020s?
Our analysts and sponsors will answer these questions and you’ll also have the opportunity to ask your own questions in our interactive panel session at the end of the event.
