The Covid-19 work-from-home environment has reshaped how corporations adopt SaaS platforms, both globally and within the US.  At the end of 2020, corporations had seen increased pressure to consolidate their SaaS platforms due to budget reduction pressures, risk and compliance issues, and scrutiny on whether the tools were being utilized appropriately. During this “fireside chat,” our expert panelists will discuss what this consolidation means, what results will be positive and negative, what obstacles will arise, and where they anticipate the SaaS market will be five years from now.
