CIO.com reported that “Years into strategies centered on adopting cloud point solutions, CIOs increasingly find themselves facing a bill past due: rationalizing, managing, and integrating an ever-expanding lineup of SaaS offerings — many of which they themselves didn’t bring into the organization’s cloud estate.” The March 15, 2024 article entitled “CIOs take aim at SaaS sprawl”
