This Item Relates to:
In an “As a Service” world, things such as software applications (SaaS), technical platforms/infrastructure (PaaS and IaaS), and business processes (BPaaS) are moving to the Cloud. As such, Buying Everything as a Service (“XaaS”), and managing those services, becomes a critical competency for the enterprise – and for procurement – especially given the business risk hiding in Cloud agreements with increasingly-powerful suppliers. Please join Mark Trowbridge from Strategic Procurement Solutions and Pierre Mitchell from Spend Matters for an informative webinar focusing on how to the ‘Cloud’ less ominous and more valuable. The session covers:
  •       Elements and implications of the XaaS model as even more services move to the Cloud – for the enterprise and for procurement
  •       Contracting factors and trends to consider: Shifting to Outcome Based SOWs; Understanding TCO factors in SaaS; Data Security, Confidentiality, Ownership & Continued Use; New Types of Data Insurance; Service-Level Complexity; End-of-Contract Transition Services; Future Impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in CLM Technologies; etc.
  •       Rapidly-changing cost drivers being introduced and promoted by Providers/Suppliers to give their firms Sustainable & Increasing Revenues: Such as Subscription Pricing; Term Renewals; Sustainable Revenues; Hidden Data Storage Fees; etc.
  •       Recommendations for Procurement Groups on  how to better-align with senior decision-makers (e.g., IT, Budget Owners, Finance, Shared Services, Risk Management) to be positioned to be a leader in provider negotiations.
