Self-provisioned technologies in the form of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud services, and Web 2.0 are no longer just emerging — rather, they are increasingly common in today's organizations. These technologies allow business roles to control a wide range of tasks: research solutions, trial, deploy, administer, adapt to changing business needs, even integrate and develop! Yet sourcing and vendor management still has a critical role to play in managing risk and cost. How do Sourcing & Vendor Management (SVM) Professionals balance risk and cost with flexibility, benefits, and value? How do they blend agility with control? This session discusses:

  • What SVM Professionals can do to help their organizations succeed in the transformation to business technology (BT).
  • The emergence of new players, new partners, and new roles: broker models, cloud orchestration, and service aggregation.
  • Metrics and governance for cloud solutions.
