Enterprise SaaS Strategies Track

Buying SaaS is rapidly becoming second nature for a growing number of Enterprises- often implementing a "SaaS First" strategy. But it's not all been plain sailing to get there. They have had to learn how to negotiate the new landscape, ecosystem and negate the potential pitfalls of SaaS, such as Lock-in, Security and Availability before moving there. How have they done it to make buying SaaS the right decision for their Enterprise?

In this track we'll look at best practices and strategies in how to buy SaaS successfully and what SaaS products Enterprises are buying today.
