As SaaS adoption continues to increase, more and more companies are finding themselves in the hybrid IT landscape. With each new SaaS application comes a new, distinct data silo that puts pressure on manual data quality and data governance processes. This results in challenges in aggregating and reconciling data across systems, leading to cumbersome and inaccurate reporting processes which have an impact on revenue growth, compliance, company productivity and decision-making.
According to Forrester Research, the number of SaaS applications companies use it expected to grow from less than 3 to 10 over the next 2 years. This rapid expansion will put existing processes to the test. In order to be prepared for the growth of the hybrid IT landscape, companies need to look to a data management strategy that includes a Master Data Management (MDM) solution.
