Software as a Service (SaaS) denial is exactly what it sounds like: enterprises thinking infrastructure technology services, network infrastructure services, or global infrastructure services are all that matters while letting SaaS fall to the wayside. Perhaps your IT department, IT service management consulting group, or IT service management consultant was ambitious at the beginning and incorporated such popular services as Office 365 or AWS. Then other aspects of the business took hold, and while building from the ground up, outsourcing software elements seemed like less of a priority and IT service management solutions were never seriously considered.
As a result, your whole IT infrastructure and organization can suffer:
In reality, you need SaaS IT service management solutions that span several departments or at least elevate a single business unit, all the while managed by your IT staff or IT service management consultant.

SaaS can add an extra layer of security as its applications typically allow for additional encryption options. All data at rest and in transit can now benefit from boosted security as projects and workflows pass through your SaaS applications. What more, when you take a more integrative, big picture approach with your SaaS implementation and not just infrastructure technology services, there will be less organizational gaps that lead to security risks. If you only implement SaaS here and there without relevant IT oversight and management, things like access controls and password requirements can go unmanaged accidentally. Out of sight, out of mind.
Being in SaaS denial can also lead to integration problems. Again, its implementation needs to be taken seriously by your I&O management team and relevant staff. Legacy systems, competing applications, and sloppy security mean when you do finally implement SaaS, you may experience a perfect storm of variables that could potentially cripple your organization because you were more focused on things like infrastructure technology services, network infrastructure services, or global infrastructure services.
You need to consider:
After all, applications in your environment will most likely need to be able to talk with one another.

Adopting emerging cloud technologies, consolidating resources, and improving processes is the key. “IT no longer just supports corporate operations as it traditionally has but is fully participating in business value delivery. Not only does this shift IT from a back-office role to the front of business, but it also changes the source of funding from an overhead expense that is maintained, monitored, and sometimes cut, to the thing that drives revenue,” said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner.Explore
Deliver Powerful Insights Instantaneously with Federated Queries - No Matter Where Your Data Resides The concept of federated queries isn’t new. Facebook PrestoDB popularized the idea of distributed structured query language (SQL) query engines in 2013.
