Farid Mheir's insight:
Sheds an interesting light onto the digital transformation that should occur in the Sourcing world, specifically around the produrement of software applications. In the old days it was easy to make an inventory of the software applications in an organization: simply report what software is installed on all the computers and you have an exact count.
Nowadays, business users rely more and more on cloud-based software, applications and solutions - Google apps, salesforce.com, dropbox, evernote, basecamp, etc. - the software is either in the cloud or on a user's personal laptop or tablet. No simple way to make an inventory.
More often than not, companies pay the bill without knowing exactly what they get for it, as the products are bought using personal credit cards and expensed by employees.
How are these software application tracked by the IT or the finance department in order to get a big picture view of the company software spend? How can sourcing negotiate volume discount rates for dropbox if it is not aware that hundreds or thousands of employees have purchased it? How can IT ensure corporate security and privacy guidelines are respected when users place confidential documents on external document sharing solutions?
