If your organization has been experiencing financial disruption as a result of the global economic downturn, you could find cost relief by addressing your current software and SaaS agreements. Gartner analysts Christiaan Murphy and Hannah Decker address this topic head-on in the newly published report “How to Cut Software and SaaS Costs and Quickly Improve Cash Flow in Times of Crisis.”
If you are financially committed to multiyear software and SaaS contracts but need relief for the next half-year to year, you may have more options than you realize. We view this as recommended reading for every organization paying annual support fees to Oracle or SAP. The report contains practical and actionable suggestions, as well as abundant links to other resources.
Topics covered include how to:
- Press your vendors to restructure payments
- Cut costs quickly by reducing, suspending, or terminating shelfware and support
- Increase negotiation leverage through vendor incentives
Who Will Benefit from This Research
Developed for procurement and finance leaders, in particular, this report is just as useful for IT managers faced with budgetary restrictions. This research provides a wide set of recommendations, from how to restructure payments to negotiating tactics to external options like third-party software support.
In our opinion, this is ideal for organizations that are under pressure to reduce annual IT costs, want advice on immediate options to quickly improve cash flow, and feel dissatisfied with the quality of their Oracle- and SAP-provided support.
