Streamline software procurement
Streamline software procurement and accelerate your digital transformation with SCC Marketplace Services
Organisations face increasing challenges when it comes to their software supply chain. For starters, there is the need for governed agility. Then there are the lengthy and often manual procurement cycles to contend with, involving multiple parties – all posing risk of delay. In the face of rapidly advancing technologies that require rigorous testing and integration, sourcing software has never been so complex.
Already we’re experiencing a demand from customers wanting greater flexibility, a simplified way to procure software, and to only pay for what they use. And we’ve seen an unprecedented shift from perpetual to consumption-based models, from customers who want to transact differently.
In response, ISVs are modernising their delivery strategy by using digital marketplaces, enabling customers to instantly and digitally procure the products they need.
Simplified software purchasing with Marketplace
Marketplace is a term being used more frequently by both public sector and commercial customers. Organisations recognise that buying through a Marketplace simplifies the procurement and governance surrounding software purchasing. It provides an easier, more agile way to procure software, enabling you to accelerate digital transformation by purchasing quickly in predefined, preconfigured ways. This then ultimately increases time to market while reducing deployment costs.
