In the midst of increasing competitive pressures from both incumbents and startups, companies across all industries are adopting Software as a Service (SaaS) technologies as a means of increasing operational efficiency, improving digital engagement with customers, and accelerating new product go-to-market market faster.

Many organizations are facing a digital transformation imperative. Digital transformation elicits varying definitions.
