Software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based business applications promise fast time-to-deploy and an agile, iterative approach for achieving business results. But try-and-buy, under-the-radar, self-provisioning, and incremental rollouts lead to fragmented solutions, which can kill ROI. Fragmented user experiences, siloed data, and breaks in business process flow hurt business value.
