Over the past decade, organisations have undergone a major organisational shift due to the Cloud's emergence. Whereas previously technology was managed end-to-end by the IT department, it is now predominantly the Business Units (BUs) that are digitising their processes by implementing and using a multitude of different apps, outside of IT governance.
While ERPs and other corporate tools provide BUs with the ability to perform ongoing tasks, the need to digitise requires specific technologies. For each process to be digitised, there is a new tool to be implemented.
It is driving a significant growth in the implementation of SaaS applications within organisations, and the trend is growing.
SaaS apps are used by organisations with more than 1,000 employees

This explosion of apps is taking place within BUs without the approval or control of the IT team.
BUs wishing to innovate quickly and avoid heavy governance processes install those apps while underestimating the associated risks.

SaaS are among the most important collectors and enablers of personal data. However, the Principal remains the organisation using the SaaS. Companies must ensure the processes outsourced through the SaaS apps are GDPR compliant.
According to Gartner, 1/3 of successful cyber attacks against organisations target Shadow IT resources. Behind every SaaS implementation lies a potential security vulnerability, whether or not the application is connected to the client organisation's IS.
SaaS apps implemented inconsistently with the existing ecosystem can create functional overlaps, lack of synergie and scattered initiatives that can lead to increased costs, and inefficiencies across the organisation.
Beyond the growing and unoptimised cost (multiple contracts, unquantifiable ROI, underused applications), SaaS apps are sometimes at the heart of critical organisational processes that can generate major business risks if an app fails.
