According to Gartner, the global SaaS market is expected to reach nearly $482 BN USD in 2022 and shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, with the recent lockdowns and rotation to remote and hybrid workforces, the need for SaaS-based software is even greater.

It is a novel time in the field of procurement. In order to address the unique set of disruptions with which the function is presented today and effectively “re-think sourcing and procurement,” ISG notes that “more than half of large and midmarket enterprises globally…are considering outsourcing (business process outsourcing (BPO) or complete transformation within the next 24 months.” The role of the BPO organization is integral to this process, creating important innovation opportunities as well as solutions to a network of challenges from resourcing to digital enablement. This ISG Provider Lens™ Quadrant Report for BPO and Transformation Services was developed to provide research-based, objective insights into business process outsourcing (BPO) and transformation services for enterprise procurement leaders and users.
According to Gartner, software spend is the second-highest IT spend category as of today. Much of this spend is comprised of ongoing software maintenance and support costs. For large software publishers such as SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, and IBM, software maintenance and support revenue represents nearly 50% of their total annual revenues. Gross margins on this support average 90%. With so much IT budget being devoted to the maintenance of software, many enterprises are looking to third-party software maintenance providers to preserve and sustain their software titles. The reason? Third-party providers are able to provide high-quality support at typically one-half to one-third of the cost of the OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
