Summary

Many sourcing and vendor management (SVM) professionals see the problems with their firm's current approach to dealing with the major software providers, but lack the authority to transform it.

The report shows how in return you can get more flexibility and less risk, which will in turn lead to better project outcomes, and lower costs over time.
