So much of your organization’s bandwidth goes toward managing your largest software contracts. But without taking the time to optimize your long-tail vendor licensing, you could be wasting valuable IT spend.
Long-tail vendor contracts are for the lower-quantity software used across your organization. These smaller contracts add up over time and without proper management can overwhelm your procurement and ITAM teams with bloated costs and compliancy risks.
