This report looks at five major forces in technology and how they will reshape SaaS sourcing: 1) industry specialization; 2) analytics; 3) cloud orchestration; 4) social; and 5) mobile. These five forces will not only affect SaaS sourcing as individual game changers but will also create new opportunities for new business value creation.
