The ITAM Review UK Conference 2018
Agenda
An introductory session looking at emerging trends in
SaaS Management
•  The Challenge
•  The Requirement
•  The Solution
•  Market Review
The ITAM Review UK Conference 2018
Background
SaaS Market overview
•  Expected to grow to $102bn pa spend by 2020
•  That’s just SaaS, not XaaS
•  45% of software spending by 2021
•  30% of spend is wasted
•  A $30bn per annum opportunity for SAM Managers
•  That’s 30 new cruise ships
•  What this means for you
The ITAM Review UK Conference 2018
The Challenge
•  SaaS Sprawl
•  Decentralised Purchasing
•  Discovery
•  IT vs ”The business”
•  Competing ”Digital” teams
•  Stakeholder Engagement
The ITAM Review UK Conference 2018
Why should we be involved?
•  Risk versus Cost
•  Motivations
•  Skills
The ITAM Review UK Conference 2018
Risk vs Cost
Zero Compliance risk?
•  No underlicensing
•  No Audits
But what about cost?
•  Minimum spends
•  No true-downs
•  Multiple contracts
•  Unused accounts
•  Edition-sizing
•  Leavers
The ITAM Review UK Conference 2018
Motivations & Skills
•  Departments don’t manage SaaS costs
•  Sales, Marketing, BI usually worst at this
•  They don’t have the skillset to do it
•  They don’t have the headcount to do it
•  The don’t see it as important - ”we can just switch it off”
•  They may try to shift the cost to IT in Year 2
•  They don’t have the tools
•  We do!
The ITAM Review UK Conference 2018
Stakeholder Engagement
•  Everyone is potentially a stakeholder
•  They’re not like internal IT stakeholders
•  Understand their motivations
•  Be an enabler, not a blocker
•  Focus on costs, not risks
•  Steer clear of technical licensing wins
•  Tell success stories
•  Don’t talk about what other departments are doing
•  Don’t say you’re from IT
•  Leave auditing and compliance to the audit teams
The ITAM Review UK Conference 2018
What do you need?
•  People, Policies, and Tools (but mainly tools!)
•  Discovery is complex
•  Multiple channels
•  Multiple services
•  No one method to rule them all
