When it comes to SaaS can there be too much of a good thing? Many SaaS-adopting organizations now find themselves with dozens of precariously connected solutions, primarily because line of business buyers bypass the offices of finance and IT.
Matt Blumber, CEO and founder of Return Path, recently penned this fun post Honey, Does this Make My SaaS Look Big?. Blumber inventories his company’s SaaS stockpile off the top of his head (50+ solutions; 50+ vendors) and acknowledges that there may be overlap because, “it’s easy for people to put small charges on credit cards and not realize other pockets of the organization are using different or even the same tools”.
I understand how this happens. And I’m not one to talk. I have over a dozen personal social media accounts, including five Facebook pages. But no harm no foul. My strategy may be chubby but it’s not hurting me.
In contrast, a bloated SaaS strategy can cost your company time and money as well as create misinformation nightmares associated with integration challenges.
