Organizations are increasingly dependent on various software for productivity, automation, security, and other critical enterprise needs. Google pioneered the move to cloud-based applications with G-Suite. Today nearly every major enterprise platform or productivity suite has a cloud-based version.
The rapid transition of enterprise applications, tools, and platforms from on-premise to the cloud has simplified commercial models and invoicing. But it has also made subscribing to the right license all the more complicated and important.

When looking at the market outlook for services spend in 2022, I see several areas that will change dramatically.
