WEBINAR: Use Forrester's SaaS Capabilities Maturity Assessment: How To Determine Fit And Readiness For Adopting Cloud Solutions

April 16, 2013

Description

Enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) usage is proliferating across categories as companies see benefits such as business agility, rapid time-to-value, and pay-as-you-go pricing models. But sourcing strategy for SaaS is often an afterthought. The typical business-led, try-and-buy purchasing patterns for SaaS have left organizations with multiple siloed instances of SaaS solutions, weak integration with enterprise IT strategy, uncontrolled costs, shadow IT, and new risks to the enterprise.

This webinar shows you how to assess your SaaS maturity across five key categories that matter for making SaaS purchases successful: category fit, technical fit, application development maturity, governance maturity, and sourcing maturity.

The Forrester self-test will help you uncover gaps that could inhibit success and diminish the benefits that SaaS promises.

Agenda:

  • Current State Of SaaS Adoption: Benefits, Trade-Offs, And Considerations
  • Five Categories To Determine Fit And Readiness For Adopting SaaS
  • Assessing SaaS Capabilities Maturity: The Forrester SaaS Self-Test Tool
  • Recommendations And Next Steps To Maximize Value From SaaS

Vendors mentioned: Google, Microsoft, Oracle, salesforce.com, SAP, and Workday.
