Vendor Landscape: SaaS Marketplaces Take Off

Software-As-A-Service Buyers Get A Faster, Simpler Buying Experience While Also Getting Better Security And Integration

September 26, 2017

Why Read This Report

Clients tell us that software-as-a-service (SaaS) vendors are too numerous (and too small) for a formal sourcing process to apply in all cases. At the same time, the business-led, ungoverned model of "shadow" SaaS deployment has proven problematic — for cost, technology architecture, and security. SaaS marketplaces promise to alleviate this burden and help AD&D pros succeed with sourcing and governing the proliferating landscape of SaaS vendors. This report will discuss the landscape of SaaS marketplaces and the different models to choose from. This report replaces our 2015 research on SaaS app stores.
