Thought Leadership Spotlight featuring Info-Tech Research Group: "6 Secrets to Better Software"

Each year, organizations cumulatively spend nearly 1 trillion dollars on enterprise software & services, and that number is rapidly increasing. The challenge Info-Tech has found is that over 50% of software purchasing decisions are ineffective. Worse, organizations are extremely likely to renew their software regardless of whether they are satisfied with it. 

In this session we will share analytical insights from over 5000 in-depth enterprise software reviews we’ve collected from IT and business leaders to help you understand how you can more effectively select and manage enterprise software, and save money while doing it. Learn what processes are most and least effective, and where the risks are.

Hint: it’s not where you think.
